Working in the garden over the weekend, I noticed our Lavender’s in full bloom. Hordes of little bees where buzzing around.
I absolutely love Lavender, the fragrance and the fact that it has a multitude of medicinal as well as practical uses.
Here’s some of it’s uses:
- Lavender is well known to help soothe and relieve headaches and migraines.
- Owing to its antiseptic and antifungal properties, Lavender is commonly added to skin care products and can serve as treatment for a host of skin disorders such as psoriasis, eczema and acne as well.
- Lavender is an effective decongestant and strong anti-viral and can help to relieve discomfort caused by nasal and sinus congestion, colds and flu.
- Lavender can aid in the healing of minor cuts and burns as it also helps the formation of scar tissue.
- Lavender is a versatile ingredient in cleaning products as its antiseptic and antibacterial properties help to inhibiting the growth of bacteria and other disease-causing microorganisms.
I thought it would be a good idea to share with you some products containing this marvellous all round essential.
