LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL is a laser-focused, 35-page look at the darling of aromatherapy. Written by a multi-certified master herbalist, LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL turns its back on "they say" and "studies show" to tell you exactly who "they" are and exactly which studies were done--and what that research found.
The author of LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL believes that herbal remedies are REAL remedies, capable of both healing and harm. You'll learn that lavender oil has been studied for insomnia and dementia--but has also been linked to hormonal disruptions in children. You'l learn that lavender may someday fight "super bugs" but can also cause heart rhythm problems.
LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL was born out of the author's frustration over a lack of serious aromatherapy information. It will help you make a more informed choice the next time you're standing before a rack of little brown bottles labeled "Lavender Essential Oil."

Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender was among the herbs used to prepare Solomon's Temple. Centuries later it fought plague in Europe. And it was lavender that the father of aromatherapy, René-Maurice Gatafossé, successfully used to treat his burned hand after it became gangrenous. Nicholas Culpepper said of lavender it was, "so well known it needs no description." Maud Grieve, in her guidebook, A Modern Herbal, devoted seven pages to it.
