October 17, 2019 Ooh La La… Lavender! Luscious and soothing benefits
The relaxing qualities of lavender have made it the top ingredient in aromatherapy today. Its scent can transport you to breezy, fragrant fields in our very own province of Quebec. It symbolizes sunshine and well-being and the beauty of the deep blue lavender fields waving in the summer sun. Its fresh and floral woody notes are renown for relaxing the mind and body. But, lavender is not new…
The earliest recorded use of lavender dates back to ancient Egypt where lavender was used for both mummification and perfumes. Indeed, upon the opening of King Tut’s tomb in 1923, there was said to be the faint scent of lavender, after some 3,000 years!
Today, fans of aromatherapy are well acquainted with the benefits of lavender, its calming and relaxing properties, as well as its harmonizing effect on the nervous system. Lavender is known to be beneficial to all, but especially to those who suffer from sciatica, arthritis and rheumatism.
