Health Benefits of Lavender Essential Oil
The various support and possible health benefits of lavender
essential oil include the following:

it can also be helpful in treating migraines, headaches, depression, nervous
tension and emotional stress. The refreshing aroma removes nervous exhaustion
and restlessness while also increasing mental activity. It has a
well-researched impact on the nervous system, which is why it is frequently
used as a treatment for insomnia and also as a way to regulate heart-rate
variability. One study showed that people taking tests showed a significant
decrease in mental stress and anxiety, as well as increased cognitive function

What are essential oils?
Essential Oils are the naturally occurring volatile oils obtained by steam
distillation or cold pressing (expression), having the characteristic aroma of
the plant part from which it was derived. These 100% pure oils are
"neat", meaning they have not been processed, diluted or manipulated
in any way with solvents or other additives. Although a particular species of
plant harvested and distilled for its essential oil during a particular growing
season in a specific region may produce a fragrance that differs from the same
species grown in a different region, many of the main chemical markers and
physical specifications may be very similar.
Do essential oils have a grading system to
tell me which is better?
There is no official grading system that grades essential oils as A, B, C or
Therapeutic grade. All of LifeSource pure essential oils are accurately labeled
as such and are the highest purity and quality available.
Essential oils are
volatile oils taken from plants using extraction or distillation. These oils
are usually used in perfumes and medications.
Although essential oils were used in ancient
history, French chemist, René-Maurice Gattefossé coined the term
"aromatherapy" in 1928. He published his book,
"L'Aromatherapie", in 1937 and made "aromatherapy" a common
word. Gattefossé also was very supportive of the lavender farmers and helped
them to succeed.
Gattefossé demonstrated how effective lavender
oil was on skin when he severely burned his hand and doused it with pure
lavender oil, immediately stopping the tissue gasification. He said his hand
not only healed quickly, it healed without scarring.

cotton and apply to burns for healing without scarring. Add a few drops of lavender oil to a bowl of
