Overview Originating from southern Europe and parts of Africa, Asia, and India, many ancient and medieval cultures relied on the herb not just for its signature scent but also its pain relieving and sedative properties. Lavender has protective effects shown to: stabilise mood, improve sleep, soothe nerves, work as an expectorant, balance blood sugar, kill bacteria, relieve pain, speed wound healing.
Typical usage and preparations As herbal tea: lavender is too strong to be used by itself as a tea, but mixed with mint leaves or chamomile it makes a soothing herbal tea. Use in a tincture form, inside a pillow to help promote relaxing sleep. Infuse vinegar with the dried flowers for use in cooking or as a skin toner (diluted). Infuse in oil to use as a topical treatment for wound healing and hair care. As an air freshener, as a face scrub and in cooking.
