What Makes Lavender Products So Special?


You might have noticed that lavender appears as a primary ingredient in several different products these days, from home essentials to skincare products. The question is, what is it that makes lavender products so special? Read on to find out. 

The Benefits of Lavender 

When it comes to lavender products, like lavender essential oil, lavender bath salts, and lavender bubble bath, it is not just the fact that they are trendy and luxurious that makes them stand out. It is the gorgeous, rich, soothing lavender aroma that really does the trick. Along with being safe to use, lavender products boast many unique benefits – hence the reason why lavender has been used in aromatherapy and herbal medicine for centuries. 

A few of the most notable advantages of embracing the sweet smell of this flowering plant include:

  • An improvement in the overall quality and health of your complexion: Some studies demonstrate that lavender products may have a positive impact on skin health. This is especially true when used by individuals who tend to suffer from acne, pimples, and blemishes, as well as by those who have particularly sensitive skin that is prone to redness. The reason for this is that lavender is known to possess powerful anti-bacterial properties which means that it can cleanse deeply, while still being exceptionally gentle and preventing dryness. Lavender stimulates healing and encourages relaxation.
  • Better quality sleep: People who struggle with various sleep problems often report that the scent of lavender has a positive effect on their shuteye. Regardless of whether you have trouble falling asleep (insomnia) or you tend to experience broken sleep (waking up frequently throughout the night), lavender can make a significant difference for the better.
  • Pain relief: Lavender has also been hailed for being a natural form of pain relief. Many athletes apply lavender essential oil directly onto their sore muscles or injuries to help alleviate the discomfort. Others will pour lavender essential oil in bath water and soak in the warmth and refreshing aroma for as long as possible for a similar effect. Having said that, athletes are not the only individuals who often turn to lavender for pain relief. Seniors who suffer from issues like arthritis and gout have also reported that lavender essential oil makes a huge difference in their ability to cope with the pain from day to day.
  • Anti-aging effects: There is a reason why so many modern skincare products include lavender as the main ingredient. There is evidence to suggest that it has a noticeable anti-aging effect when applied regularly onto the skin. It prevents wrinkles, all the while providing your complexion with a hearty dose of antioxidants that effectively protect the skin from damaging free radicals. 
  • Combatting common skin conditions: There is evidence to suggest that lavender is soothing and gentle enough to help ease symptoms associated with numerous skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis. This is because it is known to speed up the rate of healing due to its ability to increase the synthesis of collagen in the skin. 
  • Stress relief: The scent of lavender is naturally uplifting, hence the reason why it has been used for centuries as a powerful solution for stress relief, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. There have been several relevant studies conducted in recent times, most of which support the idea that lavender helps to relieve stress. A great example of one of these studies is one that was published in the International Journal of Nursing Practice in 2013. The study focused on spraying a 3% lavender oil mixture directly onto the clothing of nurses who worked high-stress jobs. The study found that the lavender spray was effective in reducing work-related stress in the nursing professionals for a period of three to four days.
