The Benefits of Lavender

The ancient Romans used it to perfume their baths, their clothes and their hair. During the Middle Ages, a sprinkle was thought to be enough to keep your loved one faithful. Queen Elizabeth used it to treat her migraines. Fast forward to today and, while not quite the cure-all it was considered in past centuries, lavender oil, the natural ingredient that gives Tea Tree Lavender Mint its delicious scent, still amazes. Scientists are now studying ways to use lavender oil to fight everything from anxiety, insomnia and depression, to inflammation and infection.
