Lavender in the News
Reducing stress: A recent study at the Harris Methodist Fort Worth Hospital (reported on the Star-Telegram.com website) demonstrated that lavender oil, massaged into the forearms, was effective at reducing stress levels.
In this study, 14 intensive care nurses, who worked 12-hour shifts, rubbed essential oils on their forearms and were then asked to rate their stress levels. Half were given a true lavender and clary sage essential oil, while the other half were given a placebo, made from almond oil. More than half of the nurses using the lavender essential oil reported a decrease in perceived stress.
The article emphasized the importance of using a pure, therapeutic-grade essential oil, that has not been diluted or spiked with chemical fillers.*
Other important benefits from lavender oil:
→ Reducing cortisol levels: chron.com reported on a study that found that just five minuted of exposure to a mild lavender scent helped to curb the release of cortisol, a stress hormone that can trigger inflammation and lead to premature aging.
→ Calming and promoting sleep: Other studies on lavender oil demonstrated its effectiveness in fighting insomnia and working as a calming agent.
→ Calming headaches: Lavender can be rubbed onto the temples to calm headaches.*
