Early Lavender History
One of the earliest recorded claims of Lavender oil's therapeutic qualities comes from the nineteenth century when tuberculosis and infection was rampant in France. It was found that the people working in the lavender fields of Provence were far less likely to succumb to infection and respiratory ailments, such as tuberculosis which was virtually unknown in the area. This discovery led to the first clinical tests in 1887 which were to prove the antibacterial properties of lavender essential oil.
Today in the 21st century where stress and anxiety is taking its toll on us all, Lavender oil has been proven to alleviate anxiety and to enhance our sense of well being enabling us to significantly improve our lifestyle through personally enhanced performance while at the same time strengthening our natural defenses against infection.
