Here is what I found on the doterra everyday website:
Lavender is one of dōTERRA’s best selling essential oils and for good reason. Lavender essential oil can be used in hundreds of different ways from helping you sleep better to reducing stress.
Lavender is known as the ‘calming oil’ and is often used to assist in balancing the body. Lavender is most commonly used to soothe the occasional skin irritation, help improve quality of sleep, aid in calming nerves, and more.
Check out the following studies on how Lavender was shown to improve sleep and decrease stress.
- Study: The quality of sleep in patients was significantly improved after aromatherapy use of lavender essential oil. The study shows that aromatherapy with lavender essential oil can improve an individuals quality of sleep and health. Read the full study here.
