Lavender (India) - Lavandula angustifolia

This is a Lavender grown in the beautiful Kashmir valley of India, also known as "Paradise on Earth". We have two Lavenders: one from Bulgaria and this one from India. Lavender has an outstanding balancing and healing effect on the nervous system. Considering that so many illnesses are stress related, Lavender holds a special place in both preventative health care and in the treatment of tension-related illnesses. It offers a soothing and antispasmodic effect that can assist tight muscles, digestive problems, spasmodic coughs, menstrual cramps, insomnia, and tension headaches. Great for restless leg syndrome.

Lavender's anti-inflammatory, skin-healing properties will help heal burns, bug bites, wounds, bee stings, rashes, acne, and skin irritations or infections.

Use a few drops of Lavender in any blend for reducing emotional tension, unwinding physical pain, and for any sudden skin problems.
