Known as an important relaxing herb, Lavender became popular during the late middle ages.

Lavender is a fantastic herb for many ailments. It stimulates blood flow, is an antiseptic, anti-bacterial, anti-depressant, and can relieve muscle spasms.

At home I use Young Living Lavender essential oil on my children to relieve itching from bug bites. It may also help speed up the healing process of minor burns, and relieve the pain. I suggest only using Young Living oils as they are pure essential oils.


Like many herbs with a significant volatile oil content, Lavender soothes indigestion and relieves gas and bloating. 

Lavender essential oil is an invaluable first aid remedy. It’s a strong antiseptic, helping to heal burns, wounds, and sores. It can also be used to treat scabies, and head lice. 

Massage a few drops on the temple area to ease headaches. 

Apply Lavender oil to the feet before bed to help with insomnia in adults and children.

Fresh or dried Lavender can be used as a smudge stick to burn around the house to restore balance and create a peaceful atmosphere.

Lavender also attracts loving energy and spirits.
