  • Based on extensive research lavender oil has been proven to reduce anxiety and to lower pulse rates. It has been used effectively to lower pre-surgery stress, to reduce depression, to overcome insomnia, and even to ease labor pains.
  • Lavender oil has also proven to be beneficial in reducing headaches, easing hangovers, opening sinus congestion, and treating general pain relief.

How does lavender oil work?

The clinically proven results lavender oil delivers are attributed both to its smell and to its physical application.
