Lavender flower | Lavandula angustifolia | Organic


Lavender is an aromatic herb, popular in gardens and as a fragrance. It also has anxiolytic & antidepressant effects and is used for sleep, anxiety & relaxation. As a tea it can also relax the stomach and intestine making it useful for colic & griping pains.

In a test tube the oil has been found to inhibit the growth of many organisms such as Gardnerella vaginalis, Helicobacter pylori, MRSA, Candida albicans, Aspergillus spp & Trichophyton spp. 

The essential oil in Lavender provides most of its action so for this reason a tea made from the flowers must be covered until drunk.

It has been found to:

  • Improve sleep quality and depth in people suffering from insomnia (2)
  • Reduces blood pressure (4)
  • Reduces signs of depression
  • Improve feelings of wellbeing

A lavender tisane can also support drug treatment for depression and in 1 study improved outcomes of depressed patients (5)

All of our teas are organic or wild harvested from natural surroundings. Enjoy!
