If there is one essential oil that you must have in your wellness kit, it's LAVENDER! Lavender has a fresh, floral aroma that is soothing and yet, invigorating!
Essential oils work their physical, emotional and psychological wonders by interacting with the olfactory nerves or entering through the skin; thus, affecting the limbic system in the brain. Lavender is an adaptogen and can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It's great for relaxation, but also has balancing properties to boost stamina and energy. Lavender also helps heal emotional issues and trauma.
Therapeutic grade lavender has infinite uses and benefits:
- Eliminates nervous tension

"True aromatherapy is only gained by essential oils derived from nature," says Mindy Green, co-author of "Aromatherapy: A Complete Guide to the Healing Art."
