Lavender as a medicine

Lavender has been used as a medicine for various ailments for centuries, though there is no record of it having been used homeopathically.field of lavender in bloom

Both English lavender (Lavandula officinalis) and French lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) are prized for their fragrance and for their analgesic, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and calming properties. Their use as an herbal remedy does not replace the expertise and care of your homeopath. Usually the use of herbal tinctures and essences is not recommended concurrently with homeopathic medicines although at times they may be used as long as there is a significant time—4 to 6 hours—between them.

Lavender may be used in the treatment of:
• Arthritis
• Bruising
• Gas
• Halitosis
• High blood pressure
• Inflammation
• Insect bites and stings
• Muscle aches and sprains
• Rheumatism
• Stress

Use lavender oil:
• Enjoy its fragrance
• Add it to bath water for a calming soak
• Rub it on your temples to relieve a headache
• Place a drop on a cloth inside a pillowcase to reduce insomnia
• Dilute with water before using to cleanse abrasions, burns, and cuts

Use lavender flowers:
• Add them to tea to calm nerves and reduce tension
• Sprinkle them in cakes and candies for a unique flavor and a calming effect

If your condition worsens—especially respiratory problems—or you have an allergic reaction to lavender, contact your health care provider immediately.
