Due to the high content of essential oils and thus the intense fragrance, lavender has been used in aromatherapy for many centuries. On the one hand, lavender is considered calming and sleep-inducing, but on the other hand, it is also considered stimulating.
Lavender against sleep disorders
If you suffer from insomnia, you can get a handle on it naturally with lavender. Many people simply can’t get any rest in the evening, thoughts are circling in their heads and they are thinking about what still needs to be done the next day. You can break this cycle with lavender, because the plant’s scents calm and promote sleep – for example, by drinking a cup of lavender tea before bedtime or putting a few drops of lavender oil on a scented stone placed next to your bed. However, be sure to use only high-quality lavender flowers or medicinal lavender oil, as many industrially produced oils consist largely of synthetically produced fragrances and are therefore not very effective.
Tips & Tricks
Lavender tea or scent, however, not only promotes sleep, but also desire. The plant is – especially together with other Mediterranean spices – a well-known aphrodisiac. Why not cook your sweetheart a delicious dish with plenty of thyme, rosemary, lavender and pepper – it will certainly stimulate him. Also a delicious tea of lavender, coriander, cloves, ginger and pepper will help many a sensual evening.
