Close your eyes. What smells come to mind when you think of spring? I think of rain and delicate flowers, lavender specifically. While Lavender might make you think of relaxing bubble baths there is so much to this little miracle plant.

Lavender, or Lavandula, while loved for its beautiful little purple flowers, is actually part of the mint family. It grows natively in the Mediterranean and is cultivate in temperate regions throughout Europe, Africa, Asia and India, and the oil is extracted using steam distillition. Lavender has been used both therapeutically and cosmetically for centuries. Egyptians used it for perfume & mummification!

Lavender is a do-it-all kind of oil of all essential oils. It calms anxiety, eases depression, relaxes muscles & improves sleep. It is also great for skin as a treatment for acne and eczema, heals scrapes and burns, and treats bug bites (is a bug repellent too). Lavender also covers all the anti-s: anti-inflammatory (calms), antiseptic (cleanses), antibacterial with properties of anti-microbial (protects), anti-fungal (prevents), lavender also protects against diabetes symptoms, improves brain function and relieves headaches.
