Hey guys. Today I’m taking a look at the health benefits of Lavender. This herb has many benefits to our minds and bodies and I will giving the Top 10 of those below.
1. Stress Reliever
The natural organic compounds in the leaves and flowers of lavender can be ground between the fingers and then rubbed into the temples. This topical application can soothe the body and mind, relieving anxious thoughts and balancing out mood. You can also brew lavender tea and achieve much the same effect.
2. Insomnia and other sleep issues
By brewing a few lavender flowers in hot water, you can steep a wonderful tea that has been used to induce sleep and relaxation for thousands of years.
Add flowers to your bathwater and take a nice long soak, the anti inflammatory properties of lavender can help to reduce inflammation throughout the body and ease hurting muscles.
4. Skin Care
An easy, mobile way to take care of your skin is to fill a spray bottle with lavender flowers. When your skin is feeling dry or irritated, simply spray some of the infused water on the area and enjoy the quick relief that it can provide. This can also work for chronic conditions, like psoriasis, and eczema.
5. Healthy Hair
