From its delicate purple hue to its earthy floral scent, everything about lavender seems tailored towards encouraging thoughts of serenity. The Lavender scent has a sophisticated, sensual aroma, coming from the lavender herb native to northern Africa and the mountainous regions of the Mediterranean. Since ancient times this aromatic floral scent has been used for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness.
Once upon a time, lavender had been recommended for people suffering from sleep disorders. People used to stuff their pillows with lavender flowers to help them fall asleep and get a better night’s rest. Today, aromatherapists use lavender to treat headaches and nervousness or anxiety.
