Lavender - a plant with powerful benefits

Lavender oil is known for its anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antidepressant, antiseptic and antibacterial properties. It is also touted as one of the best natural remedies to treat insomnia, and with good effect. 

Across many cultures, lavender oil has been used profusely as a mood changer to relieve tension and soothe the nerves. You will therefore commonly find it today in various beauty and spa treatments.

According to some sources, lavender oil can help fight respiratory problems like cold and flu, throat infections, cough, asthma, whooping cough, sinus congestion, bronchitis, tonsillitis and laryngitis.
