Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is now cultivated all over the world, including France, Russia, Bulgaria, the Himalayas and Croatia. Lavender is the most popular and widely used essential oil and for good reason: not only is it remarkably gentle and effective, but it has an almost universally beloved aroma--floral, soft, and herbaceous. This is one of the essential oils that everyone should have on hand.
Lavender has a long history of use; the name coming from the latin word 'lavere', which means 'to wash', because the Romans added Lavender to their bath water. It is the essential oil made famous by Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who, upon burning his hand in a laboratory accident, plunged it into a container of lavender oil and immediately experienced relief from the pain. He was also intrigued to find that the burn healed without the usual blistering or scarring, and became interested in the healing power of essential oils. His studies led to the publication of the book Aromatherapie, and also popularized the term aromatherapy for the study of essential oils.
Some Common Uses for Lavender Essential Oil: Lavender essential oil can help relieve headaches, PMS, cramps and muscular aches and pains. It can help relieve sinus and nasal stuffiness and relieve chest congestion.
