Lavender is a perennial plant with purple flowers that grow on long green stems. The specific odor of lavender comes from the linalyl ester molecules. These airborne oils stimulate the fragrant nerves that calm the brain, therefore, more and more people use its scent to treat insomnia, instead of using sleeping pills.

How To Use Lavender To Fight Anxiety

Anxiety is defined as a state of discomfort and fear of uncertainty or an irrational, bad feeling. It occurs when we are overly concerned. When it starts to negatively affect our everyday life, it’s medically recognized as an anxiety disorder.

Anxiety is treated with various medications that sometimes can do more bad than good. These medications have many side effects, that’s why we suggest trying lavender oil as an alternative treatment. Lavender oil can’t harm you and you can always return to the medical drugs if it does not work for you.

Lavender oil can be consumed by adults in special liquid form capsules that you can find in stores.

You can also add lavender oil to your bath which has a relaxing and calming effect on your body and mind.  However, if you can’t find this type of capsules, you can make yourself a cup of lavender tea. Lavender tea works very soothing for headaches, neurosis, fatigue, insomnia, and depression.

Don’t use lavender oil if you are taking prescription medication because it will make you sleepy and interact with your drugs. Also, consult with your doctor about any side effects and dosage before you start using lavender oil.

And last but not least, lavender oil capsules are not recommended for children or for pregnant and nursing women.
