Lavender - a beautifully fragrant herb with valuable properties
Lavender is not only a beautiful fragrance. Lavender flowers contain all the most desirable ingredients: tannins, coumarins, phytosterols, anthocyanins, organic acids, mineral salts. But what is most valuable in lavender is the essential oil.

Aromatic compounds contained in lavender oil have a toning effect on the nervous system. This means that the smell of this oil calms down, soothes the effects of emotional stress and nervous tension, and makes it easier to fall asleep.

Lavender flowers are helpful in problems with the digestive system - they can stimulate the secretion of gastric juices and bile, improve appetite, accelerate digestion, soothe colic and flatulence and accelerate peristaltic movements of the intestines.

Due to its strong antiseptic properties, lavender oil is used for skin problems. It can facilitate the healing of wounds and accelerate the regeneration of the epidermis, which is why it is often included in tonics and creams for sensitive and delicate skin.

Lavender oil supports detoxification of the body - it has a diuretic and diaphoretic effect, which accelerates the removal of toxins and heavy metals from the body.
