Lavender is a beautiful plant with an intoxicating scent. It loves full sunlight. Lavender is part of the mint family and grows around the world. The ancient Egyptians first recorded using lavender in plant medicines and perfumes.
Research suggests that lavender may be used for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness. Some studies suggest lavender can help digestive issues such as vomiting, nausea, intestinal gas, upset stomach, and abdominal swelling.
Like cannabis, lavender is rich in the terpene linalool. Linalool's effects and benefits include anti-anxiety, antidepressant, sedative, anti-inflammatory, and analgesia. Linalool can also be found in mints, cinnamon, and citrus fruits.
Combining lavender with hemp oil is a perfect match, highlighting the calming and relaxing effects of each. We include lavender in our WAVE Adaptogenic Stress Relief.
