Lavender – The Miraculous Herb With Curative Health Effects

Recently, I went to visit some of my acquaintances, and I noticed they had small bags containing lavender all around their house.

I asked them why are they displaying lavender like this and they told me that they liked the smell and that they have a particular sensation of calmness being around them.

And not for nothing. Studies showed that inhaling the smell of this herb has a sedative effect. 

Nowadays, people widely cultivate lavender. And no wonder there is such a big hype about it.

Besides its many curative properties, this aromatic herb can be administered in many ways: as volatile oil, tincture, or in the form of a powdered dried plant.
