Featured Essential Oil: Lavender
Lavender is a versatile and indispensible essential oil known for its soothing and delicate scent, used throughout history as both a fragrance and for a variety of therapeutic benefits.
Originating in the Mediterranean regions of North Africa and Southern Europe, the history of use of Lavender dates back thousands of years.
The Amazigh women of North Africa used Lavender as a aphrodisiac and protective amulet, worn in sachet long their wrists. The Ancient Egyptians cherished it’s fragrance as well, and Lavender Essential Oil was an important element used in their mummification process, wrapping the dead in lavender-dipped shrouds as part of the embalming process.
The name Lavender is derived from the Latin ‘lavare’ meaning ‘to wash”, and the fresh, sweet aroma of Lavender was used by the Romans to “scent” or wash fresh their baths, beds, clothes, hair and personal possessions. The Romans also used Lavender oil as insect repellent and for flavoring—adding it dried to foods, beverages and even to their smoking mixtures. It was considered a prized commodity and sold to ancient Romans for 100 denarii per pound -- equivalent to a full month's wage for a typical farm laborer—and was a much sought after symbol of social status.
The ancient Greeks used Lavender for a wide variety of cures, everything from insomnia and back pain-- to even insanity. They called Lavender nardus, or nard, after the ancient Syrian city of Naarda, and was considered one of the holy herbs in the Bible, used to prepare the Holy Essence and Nard or ‘spikenard’, from the ‘Song of Solomon’.
During the Renaissance Europe, Lavender was sprinkled along the stone floors of castles and used as a disinfectant and deodorant. Grown as a medicinal herb in "infirmarian's gardens" and cultivated specifically to fight disease, Europeans wore sachets of Lavender and immersed their body in Lavender oil to protect themselves from the Great Plague that rampaged across Europe, known far and wide as the Black Death. "Four Thieves Vinegar," a cleansing antiseptic containing a strong dose of Lavender, was used by looters of the multitudes of plague graves, and gained a reputation of protecting the thieves from contamination after a long night's work. Today, the Plague is known to be a virus that was easily transmitted by fleas, so the use of Lavender oil, with is strong insect repellent properties, could very well have lived up to its word.
Throughout history, Lavender has been an invaluable essential oil in both perfumery and aromatherapy. It has long been cherished for its romantic, sensual, and aphrodisiac qualities. According to legend, Cleopatra, the Ancient Egyptian Queen and last active pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, used lavender to seduce her consorts, including two of her most famous, the great Roman Emperor and General Julius Caesar and Mark Antony.
Today Lavender is cultivated all over the world and used extensively for both its aromatic and medicinal properties.
The therapeutic benefits of Lavender are varied and many. It is perhaps the most versatile essential oil of all, used for many conditions affecting the digestive, respiratory and nervous systems, and in the treatment of muscular and joint pain.
Lavender is also known for being immensely effective in relieving headaches and for its incredible calming effects. It’s also very effectively at relieving insomnia. A small dash of Lavender oil can be applied to the pillow or sprayed on the sheets to help induce a blissful night’s sleep.
Highly esteemed for its therapeutic properties in treating skin disorders, Lavender is one of the very few essential oils that can be used undiluted on the skin to treat burns, wounds and scars.
Today, Lavender is widely used in skin care products and a variety of cosmetics, such as soaps, foot care, deodorants and powders, and for keeping insects at bay, as well as to ease their bites. Dried Lavender buds are also commonly used around the home to scent clothes and drawers, and Lavender waters to scent linens and sheets. Lavender can also be found as a common ingredient in many commercial household products, which include a the fragrance of this fantastic essential oil.
Few plants in the world that can claim a history like that of Lavender. The Lavender plant has healed and delighted cultures for millennia, and it’s popularity will surely grow for generations to come.
