Lavender Benefits for Skin Care
Lavender is one of my favorite ingredients in skin care. Recognized for centuries for its anti-inflammatory properties, lavender has the added benefit that it smells great. Lavender's distinctive scent also has calming aromatherapy effects.
In one study, patients who received cosmetic injections in a lavender scented room had lower blood pressure after treatment than patients in a normal room. Like any essential oil, people who are sensitive to essential oils should always try a test spot before trying any new product with lavender. However, for most people, lavender is an excellent skin care ingredient and can easily be incorporated into your skin care regimen.
