The healing properties of lavender
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is a common favourite in many European gardens because of its beautiful purple flowers and uplifting scent. It’s origins are mediterranean, growing vigorously in sunny and dry habitat.
Like amethyst, lavender has been used for healing in ancient Persians, Greek, Egyptian and Roman societies. The name “lavender” comes from “lavare” in Latin, which means to wash, which is a reference to its use in bathes.
Lavender is a natural disinfectant and deodorant. During the time of the Great Plague Londoners in the 17th century would tie bundles of lavender to their necks to protect themselves from illness.
The scent of lavender is known for imparting a sense of calm and peace. Using lavender oil in a diffuser can amplify your relaxation and enjoyment during a Biomat session.
