ABOUT THE PLANT

A tenacious and fragrant evergreen shrub, Lavender is indigenous to the mountain ranges of Mediterranean regions; growing best in soil with low fertility and good drainage. The small violet-blue flowers sit atop spiked, pale-green branches that can reach 4 feet in height. Known as the most popular and versatile essential oil in aromatherapy, it has been referred to as "a medicine chest in a bottle".

ABOUT THE OIL

This angustifolia variety is also known as 'true' Lavender and is considered the most effective for medicinal purposes.This essential oil is produced by steam distilling Lavender flowers growing wild at higher elevations in France. It contains higher levels of linalool, the constituent found to impart more therapeutic calming effects than other varieties of Lavender.

Traditional Uses

  • The latest research on Lavender essential oil was published by researchers at the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Medical University of Vienna, Austria. This was a placebo controlled, randomized, double blind study investigating the effects of a pill containing 80 milligrams of Lavender essential oil. The pill was evaluated primarily for its effects at reducing anxiety and improving sleep. Study participants consumed one of these capsules daily for 10 weeks. In every category examined, the lavender preparation exceeded the efficacy of the placebo. It was able to improve the quality of sleep, reduce anxiety, and actually improve the overall perception of health and well-being for the users. The researchers concluded the Lavender-containing capsule "is both efficacious and safe for the relief of anxiety disorder...It has a clinically meaningful anxiolytic (anxiety-relieving) effect and alleviates anxiety related disturbed sleep.” In a study by the same group of researchers, Lavender oil was compared not to a placebo, but to Lorazepam, a "high potency benzodiazepine drug." The conclusion noted: "our results demonstrate that [...the Lavender capsule...] is as effective as Lorazepam in adults with GAD (general anxiety disorder)." It was also noted that one of the wonderful features of the natural substance is that it has no potential for abuse, unlike the benzodiazepines (such as Valium). Lavender has been favorably compared to these anxiety-relieving drugs in many studies over the last decade and is also noted in its ability to reduce aggressive tendencies.
