The Historical Use of Medicinal Lavender

Lavender has been used for thousands of years by different ancient civilizations, such as the Egyptians and the Romans.  It appears that the medicinal value of lavender was discovered early on in time and its popularity doesn't seem to have waned over the years at all.  Lavender is probably one of the most familiar essential oils used in aromatherapy.

Lavender is also one of the most gentle essential oils, due to its chemical make-up, and is therefore suitable for the treatment of a wide number of health problems; as the saying goes:

"if in doubt, use lavender!"
