Lavender scent and sleep benefits

Lavender scent

Lavender scent  is one of the most beloved fragrances in the world, which was known back in the days of Ancient Egypt and Ancient Rome. 

In ancient times, lavender was used for embalming and religious ceremonies. Today it is one of the popular ingredients in perfumery, aromatherapy and in the kitchen.

In the early 1900s, a French chemist was burned at work.  By reflexively dropping his hand into a vat of lavender oil, over time, he found that there were no scars after burns.  This property of the plant seemed to him interesting for further study of medicinal properties and laid the foundation for aromatherapy as a science.  Today, aromatherapy is one of the most popular and effective ways to improve well-being, maintain health, and treat various diseases.

 Further research over the years has shown that lavender contains more than 250 natural components, which makes lavender a leader in healing properties.

 In the modern world, lavender essential oil is most widespread.

The scent of lavender is the scent of calmness and serenity.  Its delicate and pleasant scent promotes relaxation and relieves all stress.
