The effects of lavender are extremely diverse. For palpitations, nervousness, excitement and insomnia, it is relaxing and soothing. A few drops dabbed on the temples or on the pillow help us to sleep more easily. Its main characteristic is being compensatory – it proviedes us what we are lacking. If we are stressed, it will calm us down, but if we are melancholy and burdened with worry, it will revive, refresh and build us up. Due to the pronounced skin-care properties, lavender, diluted in base oils, is also often used to care and regenerate the skin, for example after sunbathing.
