There’s a reason why lavender is considered the panacea of essential oils and why lavender is synonymous with aromatherapy. That’s because lavender (lavandula angustifolia) has the most therapeutic properties of any other essential oil. Lavender may not always be the best essential oil for every condition, but you can be assured that it will provide some level of benefit. Also, it’s not contraindicated for anything. (Note- there are other types of lavender which are contraindicated in pregnancy e.g. lavandula stoechas, lavandula latifolia, and lavandula x intermedia the common names of which are French lavender, spike lavender, and lavandin so it’s important to read labels and know which lavender you are buying!)
For the natural beauty or aromatherapy expert out there, you may note that there is a factually incorrect statement in my video. Clue – I got the wrong burn victim who stuck his hand in a vat of lavender oil and was miraculously healed! I’ll send a lavender sleepy time roller ball oil to the first person who can correctly name the person I’m referring to.
