After researching one of our favorite first aid herbs, we discovered Lavender’s wide reach is backed up by a wealth of scientific study. Today, we’ll touch on those studies and talk about how you can incorporate Lavender into your life.
Studies we mentioned:
Lin PW, Chan W, Ng BF, Lam LC. Efficacy of aromatherapy (Lavandula angustifolia) as an intervention for agitated behaviors in Chinese older persons with dementia: a cross-over randomized trial. Int J Geriatr Psychiatry. 2007;22:405-10.

For further scientific research, search PubMed using the search term “Lavender.”

We questioned the law that spurred the controversy as well as the lawmaker’s motivations and speculated on the potential repercussions for herbalists in the United States as well as world-wide.
