    LAVENDER HERBAL DESCRIPTION

    Lavandula (common name Lavender) is a genus of 39 known species of flowering plants in the mint family, Lamiaceae. It is native to the Old World and is found from Cape Verde and the Canary Islands, Europe across to northern and eastern Africa, the Mediterranean, southwest Asia to southeast India. Many members of the genus are cultivated extensively in temperate climates as ornamental plants for garden and landscape use, for use as culinary herbs, and als commercialy for the extraction of essential oils. The most widely cultivated species, Lavandula angustifolia (formerly named Lavandula officinalis), is often referred to as Lavender, and there is a color named for the shade of the flowers of this species. The names widely used for some of the species, "English Lavender" is commonly used for Lavandula angustifolia (some references say the proper term is "Old English Lavender"). The name "French Lavender" may be used to refer to either Lavandula stoechas or to Lavendula dentata. "Spanish Lavender" may be used to refer to Lavandula stoechas, Lavandula lanata or Lavandula dentata. "Egyptian Lavender" may refer to Lavandula multifida.

    The Lavandula genus includes annual or short-lived herbaceous perennial plants, and shrub-like perennials, subshrubs or small shrubs. Leaf shape is diverse across the genus. They are simple in some commonly cultivated species. In others, they are pinnately toothed or pinnate, sometimes multiple pinnate and dissected. In most species, the leaves are covered in fine hairs or indumentum, which normally contain the essential oils. Lavenders flourish best in dry, well-drained, sandy or gravelly soils in full sun. All types need little or no fertilizer and good air circulation. In areas of high humidity, root rot due to fungus infection can be a problem. Organic mulches can trap moisture around the plants bases, encouraging root rot. Gravelly materials such as crushed rocks give better results.

    Flowers are borne in whorls, held on spikes rising above the foliage. The spikes being branched in some species. Some species produce colored bracts at the apices. The flowers may be blue, violet or lilac in the wild species, occasionally blackish purple or yellowish. The calyx is tubular. The corolla is also tubular, usually with five lobes (the upper lip often cleft, and the lower lip has two clefts.

    Lavender use dates back to the times of the ancient Greeks, though the Romans were responsible for the widespread use of Lavender throughout Europe. They took it with them everywhere to use in their bath water and soap. It was widely used in potpourri and sachets for its aroma. As a sedative and disinfectant, the medicinal uses of Lavender are well known, and with modern trends toward herbal remedies, it is regaining its popularity. Although now cultivated primarily in Provence, in the south of France, lavender is native to the Mediterranean. It grows in open fields and on mountain slopes, giving off an intense, spicy aroma when it blooms.

    LAVENDER OIL

    The most potent medicinal form of lavender is the oil, which contains a high concentration of active ingredients. The finest oil is distilled from Lavandula officinalis (angustifolia, English Lavender), a variety of lavender that grows only at altitudes above 3,000 feet and is particularly resistant to heat and cold. The herb's flower buds are harvested by hand at midday, when the oil content is highest; the essential oil is then extracted using steam distillation. English Lavender essential oil has sweet overtones and can be used in balms, salves, perfumes, cosmetics, and topical applications. Lavender oil has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. These extracts are also used as fragrances for bath products.

    Lavandin, Lavandula x intermedia (also known as Dutch Lavender) are a class of hybrids of L. angustifolia and L. latifolia. Lavandin yields a similar essential oil but with higher levels of terpenes including camphor, which add a sharper overtone to the fragrance. The lavandins are widely cultivated for commercial use, since their flowers tend to be bigger than those of English lavender and the plants tend to be easier to harvest, but lavandin oil is regarded by some to be of a lower quality than that of English lavender, with a perfume less sweet.

    LAVENDER USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    MEDICINAL USES

    Written records of the use of Lavender for medicinal purposes date back to the time of Dioscorides. Lavender essential oil was used in hospitals duirng World War I. This herb has been widely used to relieve headaches, reduce hysteria and stress, eliminate insomnia, soothe muscle aches, bug bites, rashes, colds, chest infections, and rheumatism, and even reduce flatulence. The sedative effects of Lavender have been well documented in medical studies and found to be effective in reducing caffiene induced hyperactivity.

    Lavender oil has many uses: It is a powerful antiseptic containing more than 200 compounds that are active against fungi, viruses and other microbes. The oil is also valued for its ability to balance the emotions. It restores vitality in people suffering from nervous exhaustion and also has a calming effect on people who are agitated or who have trouble sleeping.

    Lavender oil is used to relieve nervousness, anxiety, difficulty in falling asleep, stomachaches, middle ear infections, burns, eczema, insect bites and other skin inflammations. The best-known active components in Lavender oil are geraniol, cineole and coumarin. These ingredients have a strong cleansing and germicidal effect and are believed to be particularly valuable for the treatment of inflammatory conditions and pain. Lavender also brings swift relief from digestive problems and various skin irritations.

    Lavender is used extensively with herbs such as Chamomile in aromatherapy. Infusions are believed to soothe insect bites, burns and headackes. Bunches of lavender repel insects. In pillows, lavender seeds and flowers aid sleep and relaxation. An infusion of flowerheads added to a cup of boiling water is used to soothe and relax at bedtime. Lavender oil (or extract of Lavender) is used to treat acne when diluted 1:10 with water, rosewater, or witch hazel. It also treats skin burns and inflammatory conditions.

    A study published in 2010 investigated anxiolytic effects and influence on sleep quality. Lavender oil with a high percentage of linalool and linalyl acetate, in the form of capsules, was generally well tolerated. Lavender shows meaningful efficacy in alleviating anxiety and related sleep disturbances.

    Lavender oil is approved for use as an anxiolytic in Germany under the name Lasea. A survey paper on lavender and the nervous system published in 2013 states that, "there is growing evidence suggesting that lavender oil may be an effective medicament in treatment of several neurological disorders." Lavender may be very effective with wounds, however, lavender honey (created from bees feeding on lavender plants), instead of lavender essential oil has the best effects of uninfected wounds.

  • CULINARY USES

    Lavender is grown as a condiment and used in salads and dressings. Flowers yield abundant nectar from which bees make a high quality honey. Monofloral honey is produced primarily around the Mediterranean, and is marketed worldwide as a premium product. Flowers can be candied and are sometimes used as cake decorations. Lavender flavors baked goods and desserts (it pairs especially well with chocolate), and is also used to make Lavender Sugar. Lavender flowers are occasionally blended with black, green, or herbal teas.

    Lavender lends a floral and slightly sweet flavor to most dishes, and is sometimes paired with sheep's milk and goat's milk cheeses. For most cooking applications the dried buds, which are also referred to as flowers, are used. Some chefs experiment with the leaves but only the buds contain the essential oil of Lavender, from which the scent and flavor of Lavender are derived. In the United States, both lavender syrup and dried lavender buds are used to make lavender scones and marshmallows.

    OTHER USES

    Flower spikes are used for dried flower arrangements. The fragrant, pale purple flowers and flower buds are used in potpourris. Lavender is also used extensively as herbal filler inside sachets used to freshen linens. Dried and sealed in pouches, lavender flowers are placed among stored items of clothing to give a fresh fragrance and to deter moths. Dried lavender flowers have become recently popular for wedding confetti. Lavender is also popular in scented waters and sachets.




    LAVENDER DOSAGE INFORMATION

    Lavender in lotions and oils soothes burns and relieves bee stings.

    As an oil, it aids in relieving the pain of muscle tension and is a natural relaxant. Read product label directions for use.




    LAVENDER SAFETY & INTERACTION INFORMATION

    The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) states that Lavender is considered likely safe in food amounts and possibly safe in medicinal amounts. NIH does not recommend the use in of Lavender while pregnant or breast-feeding because of lack of knowledge of its effects. It recommends caution if young boys use Lavender oil because of possible hormonal effects leading to gynecomastia, and states that Lavender can cause skin irritation. Lavender oil should not be taken internally and should not be used during pregnancy. Safety in young children, nursing women, or those with severe kidney or liver disease is not known.

    Lavender oil is one of the few essential oils that is safe to use undiluted, on the skin. Keep a small bottle in your kitchen cabinet to treat first-degree burns. One to two drops directly on the burn will relieve pain and reduce the risk of blisters.
