Since we released the scent quiz, we don’t stop collecting insights. And that’s great because it allows us to create products addressing them. So please, if you have not taken the quiz yet, go for it! Anyway, back to the topic. One thing that called our attention is how big the need of relaxing and decompressing is, across the board. Regardless any other factor, people crave relaxation and mindful moments. And based on that, we decided to investigate more about natural ingredients which can help.
We found an extensive paper from the US National Library of Medicine, National Institute of Health that compiles a number of different studies about lavender, and although is common knowledge that lavender carries relaxing properties, here are some amazing findings:
Stress & Anxiety
- Alleviation of anxiety and mood improvement were reported in thirty-six patients admitted to an intensive care unit, who received lavender oil aromatherapy, according to Journal of advanced nursing. 1995.
- An investigation on the effect of lavender aromatherapy on anxiety and depression in the high risk postpartum woman showed a significant improvement of the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale and Generalised Anxiety Disorder Scale after four consecutive weeks of administration of lavender, according to Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice. 2012
- Lavender has been suggested as an excellent natural remedy to treat insomnia and improve the sleep quality. Single-blind randomised studies investigated the effectiveness of lavender odour on quality of sleep showed that lavender improved the mean scores of sleep quality in 113 subjects, all ages. According to American Journal of Rhinology. 2000
And there’s more, but you get the point. No wonder lavender is increasingly popular these days, when people is turning to nature to find alternatives that help improve how they feel.
