Lavender: Incorporate this Soothing Herb into Your Life for Relaxation & Vitality

The benefits of lavender have been well-established for some time; its soothing smell can help you rest and unwind after a stressful day. However, there are some lesser known positive effects that result from consuming lavender in teas, foods, or by using it topically that people don't always think of. Here are just a few:

Skin Health - Lavender has been known to help reduce blemishes and has an overall rejuvenating quality on the skin. You'll find this out firsthand by incorporating our body scrub into your skincare regimen.

Gut Health - Providing a much-needed boost to your gut health, lavender also adds a subtle-but-powerful note to many of our spice blends.

Nervous System - Did you know that simply smelling lavender can have a calming effect on your nervous system? It's a nice thing to add to your self-care toolbox if you suffer from anxiety. 

Here are some products we offer with lavender that can help deliver some of this herb's incredible benefits:

Lavender has to be one of the most touted herbal remedies for stress. It's soothing aroma and healing properties make it a valuable addition to your natural remedy routine. At Fangboner Farms, we've added lavender to many of our products, including our lemon balm/mint/lavender tea blend and, one of our more recent additions, our butterfly pea flower/lemongrass/lavender blend

Along with its stress reducing qualities, lavender is also anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal. It's even a deterrent for hair loss, a source of Vitamins A, C, and K, plus calcium and iron. 

"With all the current issues surrounding us today - from the pandemic and social issues to politics and personal relationships - lavender tea is a great way to relieve anxiety, depression, stress, and other mood disorders," says Dr. Kristal. "It can also improve sleep, menstrual cramps, and your immune system."

To build off of last week’s herb of the week, chamomile, we are focusing on lemon balm, an herb that has similar calming effects. If you are looking for something healthy to help you unwind at the end of a long day, lemon balm is the way to go. It’s been known to help people suffering from depression and anxiety, but it also helps you think a little quicker on your feet.

“Lemon balm strengthens your brain while lifting your mood,” explains Dr. Kristal. “It is great for reducing anxiety and nervousness while boosting cognitive function.”

So there you have it - an ideal tea to help you stay calm and focused. Whether you have a big exam coming up or you are simply trying to cope with the stress of life during a pandemic, lemon balm can be a big help.

Try it in our Lemon balm/mint/lavender tea blend  and see for yourself!
