Lavender has been used since time immemorial and is extracted by distilling the flowers. It is wound healing, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. It stimulates the skin cells and helps the skin's own ability to form new tissue when the skin is damaged. Lavender cares for and softens the skin without causing irritation or redness of sensitive skin.
Lavender is often used in aromatherapy due to its pleasant and soothing scent which is widely known to increase well-being and reduce stress and tension.
