The use of lavender as a massage oil dates back to Ancient Egypt. Kings were buried with jars filled with lavender, while queens doused themselves in the perfume of the spiky plant. The Ancient Greeks anointed their feet and breasts with lavender oil, so the intoxicating scent would heal body, mind and heart. Lords and ladies of the Medieval English court cured the migraines of nobility with a drop of lavender in their tea, and the French have been fighting infections with lavender oil since the 16th century.
Doctors in Germany have incorporated lavender into anti-anxiety medications (1), but you do not need a prescription. A few drops of lavender oil in a steaming hot bath will whisk you away to Cloud Nine faster than you can say “Ahhhhh.”
“There’s a few things I’ve learned in life: always throw salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for good luck, and fall in love whenever you can.”
– Practical Magic
“…over 1,200 components have been identified in Lavender essential oil. It is intuitively understandable that these layers upon layers of physiological activity of all the components in lavender generate an overall quality, which is distinctly that of Lavender… and Lavender’s unrivaled ability to heal burns.”
