Besides hemp-derived CBD, both our CBD Skin Salve and CBD Pain Salve contain Lavender essential oil. Lavender essential oil is created through steam distillation of the fresh flowers. In addition to the essential oil, our CBD Skin Salve contains lavender-infused coconut and olive oil. So as you can tell we are pretty pumped here at HempCo– not only about CBD, but also about the healing benefits of lavender flowers.
Lavender is a highly aromatic wood shrub with beautiful violet/blue flowers. This potent healing plant is native to the Mediterranean, but has become a very popular addition to many gardens here in the United States. When looking at vitalist energetics, Lavender is a warm and dry herb, which acts as both a relaxant and a stimulant to our systems. Lavender is very complex, containing many different chemical constituents, all contributing to the oil’s therapeutic effects.
Lavender’s healing properties were first discovered by French scientist, Rene Gattefosse. He found that Lavender had the ability to promote tissue regeneration and speed wound healing after he severely burned his arm in a lab accident. Clinically speaking, Lavender is considered a sedative, anti-depressant, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and rubefacient (causes your skin to turn red because it increases circulation).
Lavender is famous for being known as an all-purpose oil for skin care. Non-irritating to all skin types, Lavender is used for accelerating healing of wounds, scars, burns, bruises, insect bites and stings, and soothing skin diseases, such as abscesses, acne, allergies, boils, athlete’s foot, sores, ringworm, psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema. Addition to skin care, Lavender is great for circulation, muscles and joints. We use in this essential oil in our CBD Pain Salve because it is great for muscle aches and pains, sprains and rheumatism. Another big component of Lavender essential oil is when added to a recipe, like both our CBD Skin Salve and CBD Pain Salve, it not only has its own strong medicinal qualities, but also strengthens the effects of the other oils in the mixture.
Along with the physical medicinal attributes, many use Lavender for aromatherapy to help balance emotions, another reason why this herb/essential oil is a great addition to both our CBD Salves. The aromatic Lavender has been shown to relieve stress, tension, anxiety, nervousness, and depression, leading Lavender to have a calming, relaxing and balancing effect on us emotionally.
Since Lavender has no contraindications and is healing/non-irritating to all skin types, it is a great addition to both our CBD Skin Salve and our CBD Pain Salve. Learn what other ingredients are in our salves: www.cbdriven.com/shop
