The scent has a calming effect which may aid in relaxation and the reduction of anxiety. It may also help to relieve pain from tension headache when breathed in as vapor or diluted and rubbed on the skin. When added to a vaporizer, lavender oil may aid in the treatment of cough and respiratory infection.
Lavender oil may also be used as a mosquito repellent when worn as perfume or when added to lotions or hair products.
The diluted or undiluted oil may be used as an antiseptic and pain reliever to be applied to minor burns and insect bites and stings. Use only small quantities when applying directly to the skin. It is best applied on a wet cotton wool pad to the infected area.
Lavender's perfectly balanced floral-herbaceous aroma provides an unmatched array of attributes - calming, relaxing, refreshing, toning and cleansing - making it the most popular oil in aromatherapy.
