Supernatural Spotlight: Lavender

Lavender has been in use by humans for over 2500 years! The ancient Egyptians used lavender for mummification and perfume. Romans used lavender oils for cooking, bathing, and scenting the air. Even the name comes from the Latin word “Lavare” which means “to wash”. Its medicinal and cleansing properties have been long understood and cultivated for their aromatherapeutic nature. Even today, you can find lavender in almost any home or body care product. Its naturally soft aromas bring us into a deeper connection within ourselves.

Aromatherapy actually owes its existence to lavender, a humble beginning for a truly magical plant.

Living with Lavender

Lavender is truly a magical plant, full of soft sensual fragrances and a therapeutic nature. Lavender oil is primarily used in perfumes and soaps, but its uses vary from household cleaning products to deodorizers and candles. It is well regarded for its natural antiseptic and antibiotic properties that can kill bacteria, alleviate the effects of bee stings and migraines, heal burns and ward off moths in clothing closets.

Lavenders produce essential oils and these consist mainly of organic compounds, including an antimicrobial and insecticidal monoterpene named 3-carene. Researchers have isolated and examined the gene and corresponding enzyme that catalyzes the formation of 3-carene in lavenders.

Lavender also contains linalool, an anxiolytic agent which is known to help ease anxiety. It is an analgesic, meaning it provides pain relief by blocking the production of prostaglandins. These constrict blood vessels, which can restrict blood flow through the body. By reducing the production of prostaglandins, analgesics can reduce fever, inflammation, and pain. It is great for headaches and can soothe migraines due to these properties. Check out the in-depth scientific paper about lavender and the nervous system and what it does for your brain.

Loving with Lavender

The botanical of lavender is often used for calming our nervous system, promoting deeper and more sustainable sleep, and aiding in balancing emotions. Lavender is most commonly associated with love, devotion, and grace. It is often seen as a flower of serenity and it is used in many religious ceremonies.

Lavender is also great for rituals involving love and attraction, as it can help you with sex and fertility. Its soft sensual nature can bring a deeper connection with yourself and others. It’s always good to have a fresh-smelling, clean area to feel sexually liberated, offering a chance for a deeper connection with your partner (or even on your own).
