Let’s talk about one of the most used essential oils in the world - lavender! There’s good reason this fragrant flower is so popular, it serves in all things healing and calming! 

Lavender and crystals

Lavender means “to wash” in Latin. Its Latin name is Lavandula Angustifolia. The oil is created by steam distillation. It takes about three pounds (1.36 kg) of fresh lavender to get just 0.5 fl oz (15 ml) lavender essential oil, so the oil is very concentrated. 


Lavender has so many amazing properties from inflammation, antinociceptive properties, stress relief, decreasing the effects of migraine headaches, to treating parasitic infections, burns, insect bites and spasms. 


There is growing evidence suggesting that lavender oil may be effective in the treatment of several neurological disorders. Several animal and human investigations suggest anxiolytic, mood stabilizer, sedative, analgesic, and anticonvulsive and neuroprotective properties for lavender. Take a closer look at some of the research studies cited below that describe the proven benefits of lavender oil. 


I’d say it’s definitely one of the top 10 most well used oils at Mama Bare Naturals because it has such a wide range of healing capabilities.
