“One of our most familiar and favorite herbs, lavender adds its clean floral scent and calm, relaxing properties to hundreds, if not thousands, of different skin care products, herb formulas, and cleansing agents. Lavender’s antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties make it useful for burns, rashes, and irritated and damaged skin, and it is commonly used as a healing agent in creams, lotions, and salves. It has cell-regenerating properties and is used for reducing wrinkles, scarring, and stretch marks. It is also an excellent calming and relaxing herb and is popular in herbal baths. Note: There are many different varieties of lavender, but Lavandula angustifolia is generally considered the best quality for medicinal and cosmetic purposes.”
