The uses of lavender have changed greatly over the centuries. From balsam for mummification to lavender bouquets to ward off the plague, they ranged to tinctures for burns and inflammations. With the art of distillation and perfume making, lavender was given an immovable place right up to our own time.
Today, lavender is a popular household remedy. It is used for headaches as well as insect bites, for acne and sunburn and still helps with small burns to promote rapid healing.
Lavender is also a good remedy for flu and other infectious diseases of the respiratory tract. To use it, you can make a room spray or use a fragrance lamp, or if you have your own bottle that no one else is using, you can smell it directly and "inhale" it.
Lavender in the eye pillow
Dried lavender is used for the inlays. Its scent supports and enhances the effect of the eye pillow for insomnia and problems falling asleep. You get used to this scent very quickly and hardly notice it, if at all, although it is still there and unfolds its calming, balancing effect. If the eye pillow is slightly warmed by your body heat, the scent intensifies a little more. This also happens when you lightly walk it with your hands.
