Description
The name lavender comes from the Latin lavare, to wash, and the herb has been used to scent baths and toiletries since Roman times. Lavender is useful for digestive upsets, nervous tension, insomnia, migraines and headaches, The flowers can be made into a pleasant tasting tea taken at night for sleeplessness or during the day for headaches and nervous tension.

Dioscorides, writing in the second century AD, recommended lavender for "griefs in the thorax", although the plant used by the Greeks was probably L. stoechas, generally known today as French lavender and rather less hardy than the familiar English variety. In Arabic medicine, this tradition of using lavender for chest problems has continued and it is still used in the Middle East as an expectorant.

Herbalists usually describe lavender as "cooling", suggesting that it is best suited to ease those sorts of headaches that are soothed by cold packs rather than the sort of pain that is comforted by a warm compress.

Lavender essential oil is steam-distilled from the flowers and is used in aromatherapy for muscular aches, pains and headaches (add 1 ml lavender oil to 20 ml of sunflower oil and massage into painful areas). A few drops of lavender oil can also be added to creams for eczema or diluted in water to make a soothing lotion for sunburn and minor scalds. Added to bath water, lavender oil is relaxing and soothing for nervous tensions and insomnia. In massage oils, lavender can be helpful for muscular aches and pains, strains and some rheumatic problems.
