With a name derived from the Latin ‘lavare’, meaning ‘to wash’, lavender has long been associated with cleanliness and purity.
Unmistakably scented nodding purple heads of lavender may be synonymous with the sun-drenched fields of Provence but this plant was popular long before modern times, used by Ancient Greeks, Romans and Persians.
Employed in aromatherapy to promote a sense of calm and wellbeing, lavender also has been known to have antibacterial and antifungal properties.
This means it is often present in cleaning products and some people use lavender oil for hair and skin too.
There is some evidence that lavender oil, like citronella, could help to keep mosquitos, moths, ants and other insects at bay.
Some people even use lavender oil on their hair to help repel head lice.
Simply add a few drops of lavender oil to a spray bottle of water and spritz legs and arms before heading outside.
Alternatively adding a few drops to a candle or oil diffuser and burning throughout the evening may make al fresco dining more pleasant.
And if you do get bitten? Many people swear by lavender oil to soothe any discomfort caused by this.
Being that essential oils cannot be used topically, you might feel nervous about harnessing lavender’s antibacterial potential for skin and haircare.
However, used sensibly, lavender oil may aid numerous skin and scalp concerns.
Helping to soothe breakouts and dry skin, lavender oil may help reduce the appearance of redness and discomfort when used topically blended with a carrier oil or unscented moisturiser.
Try dabbing a small amount of diluted oil directly on the desired area or using lavender oil blended with argan oil, as a beautifully scented toner.
Added to your conditioner or hair rinse, lavender could also aid improved scalp health, helping to provide the basis for strong, healthy-looking hair.
Aromatherapy oils have different benefits.
Some, like peppermint and sweet orange, are invigorating, others such as ylang ylang and clary sage, are uplifting.
Most people use lavender oil for promoting better sleep and in some countries lavender tea is even approved as a supplement to aid disrupted rest.
Research backs lavender’s relaxing claims, with some studies showing that using lavender essential oil increases the amount of deep-wave sleep some people experience.
Other essential oils recommended to aid a better night’s sleep include chamomile and bergamot.
For best results, put a few drops of oil on the underside of your pillow or add to a diffuser, to fill your room with soothing lavender scent.
A popular choice for massage, lavender may help you to feel calmer after a hard day.
There is also evidence that lavender essential oil may help ease feelings of stress and anxiety.
Essential oils should never be used topically without diluting as they can irritate skin.
Instead, pop four to six drops of Miaroma lavender oil into 20ml of scent-free carrier oil, such as grapeseed oil, for the perfect lavender massage.
