Now, these are ways you can benefit from the usage of Lavender oil.

Antioxidant protection

Lavender oil is a natural antioxidant that prevents and reverses disease.  A recent study found that lavender oil increased the activity of the body's most powerful antioxidants - glutathione, catalase, and SOD.  Other studies have shown similar results, concluding that lavender has antioxidant activity and helps prevent or reverse oxidative stress.

Natural Treatment for Diabetes

In 2014, scientists from Tunisia set out to do a fascinating study:  to test the effects of lavender essential oil on blood sugar to see if it could naturally help reverse diabetes.  

During the 15-day animal study, the results were astonishing.  In a nutshell, lavender essential oil treatment protected the body from the following diabetes symptoms:

1. Elevated blood sugar (the hallmark of diabetes)
2. Metabolic disorders, especially lipid metabolism
3. Weight gain
4. Depletion of antioxidants in the liver and kidneys
5. Liver and kidney dysfunction
6. Liver and kidney lipoperoxidation when free radicals "steal" necessary fat molecules from cell membranes

The results of this study are encouraging and indicate the therapeutic potential of lavender. 

Improves mood and reduces stress

In recent years, lavender oil has been put on a pedestal for its unique ability to protect against neurological damage.  Traditionally, lavender has been used to treat neurological problems like migraines, stress, anxiety, and depression.  Yet, lavender oil has also been shown to improve PTSD symptoms and drastically reduce sleep disorders, mood swings, and overall health in people with PTSD.

Supports brain function

The neurological benefits of lavender essential oil don't stop at its ability to treat depression and improve mood. Lavender oil may serve as a natural treatment for Alzheimer's disease.  Inhalation of lavender essential oil vapor can help prevent oxidative stress in the brain and improve cognitive functioning.

Heals burns, and cuts

Widely known for its antimicrobial properties for centuries, lavender oil, as everywhere else, is used to prevent various infections and to combat bacterial and fungal diseases.  Lavender oil speeds the healing of burns, cuts, scratches, and wounds - and a large part of that is due to its antimicrobial compounds.

Promotes healthy skin and hair

Most likely due to its antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, essential lavender mixed with a carrier oil like coconut, jojoba, or grapeseed oil has profound benefits for your skin.

Topical application of lavender oil can help improve a number of skin conditions, from canker sores to allergic reactions, acne, and age spots.  Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties help soothe skin conditions and reverse signs of aging. 

Lavender oil, along with other essential oils like thyme, rosemary, and cedarwood, can significantly improve alopecia areata and hair loss when massaged into the scalp on a daily basis.

Relieves headaches

If you are among the millions of people struggling with tension or migraine headaches, lavender oil may be the natural remedy you have been looking for.  It's one of the best essential oils for headaches because it induces relaxation and relieves tension. 

It has a calming, anxiolytic, antispasmodic, and calming effect.  Spreading lavender or inhaling it directly from the bottle is the best use for headache relief.

Improves sleep and insomnia

Because of the calming properties of lavender oil, it improves sleep and treats insomnia. There are studies involving mothers that demonstrate the sleep-inducing and calming effects of lavender oil.  

Inhaling lavender has been shown to reduce insomnia, improve the quality and duration of sleep, fight insomnia, and improve general wellbeing, and unlike most sedatives, lavender does not cause any undesirable side effects. It actually promotes overall mental and physical health.
