Lavender is known for its pleasant aroma and purple flowers. Originating from the mountainous regions of the Mediterranean, today lavender is cultivated all over the world. It is also used in aromatherapy and phytotherapy in the form of tea or herbal tea. The use of lavender infusion dates back many centuries in different cultures for traditional medicine and herbal remedies.

Since Antiquity, lavender has been prized by the Romans for its pleasant smell: they used it to perfume their linen. In the Middle Ages, it started to be used in perfumes. However, its medicinal properties are still little known today. So what is lavender known for?

A scientific study by a medical university has shown that the inhalation of steam escaping from the infusion of lavender flowers can slow down the activity of the nervous system.

TREATING MIGRAINES

Essential oils are present in lavender herbal tea. These essential oils are very useful against migraine. Migraine is actually a headache, which is felt on one side of the head and can cause nausea. A person's vision can sometimes become blurred due to it. A study was done to determine the effects of lavender herbal tea on migraine. The study included two groups of forty-seven people and one was the test group while the other was the control group. Liquid paraffin to breathe was given to patients in the control group. Patients in the test group received lavender essential oil. Experts have concluded, following this study, that lavender oil is very beneficial against mild cases of migraines.

HELPING AGAINST SEIZURES

Convulsions are the violent and involuntary contraction (spasm) of one or more muscles, one or more limbs, or even the whole body. A study was done on the effect of lavender on seizures in 2000. The study was published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, and found that lavender had anti-seizure properties. The researchers hypothesized that lavender had the ability to block the passage of calcium through the nervous system. This calcium is responsible for convulsions.
