1. Creates Calm and Tranquility
Lavender soothes the mind and shields from depression and anxiety which can cause skin problems. (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov) Lavender is an antispasmodic which means it soothes muscles and hyperactive skin cells. It also relieves headaches. Relaxation on contact!
Lavender will help you wind down after your endless day and promote great sleep allowing you to rise refreshed and do it all over again the next day. You need sleep. Productive. Deep. Sleep. I'm sure you have heard of beauty sleep and it is so true! While you sleep your skin cells regenerate and repair themselves from all of the environmental stressors it encountered the day before. As we age sleep becomes even more important because it takes twice as long (roughly 40 days) to generate new skin cells.
