Under the Microscope: Lavender Essential Oil

Hello Readers,

Welcome to Dhunuwi Wa Durrgan's Under the Microscope Blog!
This blog is all about the incredible Lavender Essential Oil. 

Lavender Oil comes from the distillation process of certain lavender species  and can only be drawn from the flower. 

When you walk past a lavender plant or rub the flower between the palms of your hands, you are experiencing the aromatherapy qualities of Lavender. 

The origin of Lavender is believed to be from the Mediterranean, Middle East and India. Its history goes back some 2500 years. Lavender is a flowering plant of the mint family. Lavender derives its name from the Latin ‘lavare’ meaning ‘to wash” and it is recorded that it was used to wash the body, hair and clothing. 

Benefits of Lavender Essential Oil;

  1. Calming anxiety and nerves
  2. Reducing effects of Insomnia
