L like Lavender

In cosmetics, Lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia) prevents and repairs the effects of dehydration.

Thanks to its relaxing, soothing power, in inhalation or massage, the tensions of everyday life are over. It is with it that modern aromatherapy was born: the story goes back to Monsieur Gatefossé, a chemist, who accidentally discovered its healing properties. Be careful though, in some rare cases, an allergy may develop: place a drop in the crease of the elbow and wait 15 minutes to assess skin tolerance.
