From the 18th century, lavender water was used in baths for its calming and relaxing effect. The essential oil was used to treat migraines and rheumatism. Lavender sachets can be placed under pillows to help people sleep, and in closets to perfume linen and deter mites. During walks in the countryside, fresh lavender flowers can be rubbed over the skin to soothe insect bites.
The essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the flowering tops and has astringent, antiseptic and relaxing properties. It purifies the skin, helps regulate sebum production and evens out and clarifies the complexion.
