Lavender Essential Oil

A pleasant and therapeutic floral aroma that calms the anxious mind and aids in sleep.

Steam-distilled from the fresh flowers of the lavender plant, New Roots Herbal’s 100% pure essential oil ensures you are getting the highest-quality medicinal ingredients in the purest form. The two major components of lavender oil released in aromatherapy are linalool and linalyl acetate. A study comparing the anxiolytic effects of lavender to benzodiazepines like chlordiazepoxide and diazepam (Valium) showed an equal efficacy, but there were fewer side effects when using the lavender oil. Another study investigated the effect lavender aromatherapy had on anxiety and depression in high-risk postpartum women. During this trial, they found significant improvement of the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale and Generalized Anxiety Disorder Scale after just four weeks of use.
