Most people think of lavender as a beautiful and fragrant flowering herb but there’s much more to lavender than most may know. We all love the scent of lavender while bathing, showering or washing our hair but would you believe that lavender can sooth aching muscles or headaches?
People are tired of depending on modern science with drug manufacturers that seem to have forgotten that the real bottom line isn’t called profit. And many people are looking for inexpensive solutions that work; lavender is a beneficial little herb filled with secrets.
Use the flowers and essential oils of lavender to:
- Muscle aches
- Digestive disorders
- Cold sores
- Labor pains
One way to use lavender topically is by using lavender oil. Simply massage the oil into the areas of the body that need some relief, even the temples of the forehead for tension headaches.
Hot infusion is another way. Some people soak lavender oil in hot water, or other hot liquid, to make a soothing compress.
Then there are digestible forms of lavender that are ideal for menopause and digestive disorders.
No matter what the ailment is, it’s likely that there is an inexpensive herbal remedy that will work faster and more effectively than traditional mass manufactured remedies found in your grocers’ aisle.
So the next time you feel congested, heat up a steeping pot of lavender and put it to the test. Chances are you’ll be glad you did.
