Medicinal Usage

Lavender has a steady tradition of health use since the time of Dioscorides, a first century AD. Greek naturalist. It possesses tonic, stimulant, antispasmodic, carminative, sedative, stomachic, and diuretic qualities. Lavender tea, oil, or inhalants can be used to help support headaches, neuralgia, muscle spasms, joint pain, and other ailments.

Lavender oil contains linalool, linalyl acetate, lavandulyl acetate, and over 100 other components. In tests with mice the oil has been found to be a central nervous system depressant.

Lavender is one of the most appreciated of fragrant herbs. Lavender oils are used as fragrance in preparations and in cosmetic dreams, lotions, soaps, perfumes, and colognes. I distinctly remember my first cup of lavender tea. It tasted more like a bar of soap than a beverage. Both L. angustifolia and L. stoechas are commercially produced for dried flowers and essential oil.

General Herb Information

There are about twenty species and numerous varieties of lavenders occurring mainly in the Mediterranean region, though some hail from as far east as India.

English lavender L. angustifoIia is a two- to three-foot-tall perennial shrub with slightly hairy linear or lance-shaped leaves up to 2 1/2 inches long. It produces one-half-inch-long blue-violet flowers arranged in whorls of six to ten blooms on loose 3 1/2-inch-long spikes. Leaf-like bracts are in an opposite arrangement below each whorl. They are usually shorter than the three-sixteenths inch calyces. English lavender has many cultivars including the dwarf early blooming 'Munstead' the white flowered 'Alba', 'Hidcote', a deep purple-flowered cultivar, and 'Rosea', with rose-pink flowers, to name a few.

French or dentate lavender, L. denlatti, grows to three feet in height. The leaves are grayish in color and covered with a soft fuzz. They are about 1 1/4 inches long, linear-oblong with well-defined rounded teeth at the margins. The tight spikes are up to 1 inches long and one-half inch in diameter. The one-fourth inch long purple flowers are offset by thin, purple, oblong- to oval-shaped bracts up to one-half inch in length. One variety has green rather than gray leaves.

L. multifida, fern leaf lavender, has lacy; finely divided fern-like leaves. Each segment is one-fourth to three-fourths inches long. The spikes are often in threes or solitary; up to 2 1/2 inches long with one-half inch-long bluish corollas.

L. stoechas, Spanish lavender, is a shrub growing to four feet tall with linear to oblong, lance-shaped leaves about three-fourths inches long. The spikes are short and plump up to 1 1/2 inches long eighths inch flowers are dark purple. This lavender is native to Spain and Portugal.

L. x kybrida albiz ex Gingins (L. hetervphylla, Sweet Lavender, Taylor's Herb Garden's name) is a fast-growing perennial reaching four feet in height. The leaves are fuzzy, broad, lance-shaped to spatular-shaped, 1 1/2 inches long, with compact groups of leaves. The compact spikes are up to three inches long. The bracts have sharply pointed tips, become enlarged toward the top of the spikes, and are sessile toward the top. Once flowering commences it continues through the growing season. This hybrid is found only in cultivation.

Lavenders can be grown from seed, cuttings, or root divisions. Cuttings taken in spring or fall are the best means of propagation. Seeds take about a month to germinate and should be planted indoors six to eight weeks before spring's final frost. Plants from cuttings or seeds grow very slowly the first year, often reaching only six to eight inches in height. They must be mulched or otherwise protected through the first winter.

Lavenders like a light, well-drained, gravelly soil well-supplied with lime; pH should be between 6 and 8.3. L. angustifolia is the only species I've listed that will survive a hard, cold winter. The others hardly stand a freeze. Wet soils will inevitably winterkill the crown. A protected south-facing location is best. A heavy mulch should be provided after the ground freezes in late fall.

Harvest the buds just as the flowers are about to open. Dry in a well-ventilated space with subdued light.

Lavender is a Mediterranean shrub which is cultivated for its aromatic flowers in the United States and Europe, particularly in Bulgaria, and France, Britain, Australia, and Russia where large quantities of this herb are grown annually. The common Lavender is a shrubby plant having many woody branches and long narrow leaves. The fragrant flowers of Lavender are used in the preparation of many herbal healths.

Traditionally, herbalists used Lavender for a variety of complaints of the nervous system, including melancholy and fatigue. It can also be tried to help support headache and joint pain. In Arab medicine, it can be used as an expectorant and an antispasmodic. Due to its delightful odor, Lavender has found wide application in perfumes and cosmetics throughout history. The name Lavender comes from the Latin "lavare," meaning to wash, and refers to the Roman custom of scenting bath water with the leaves and flowers of this aromatic plant.

Before World War II, Lavender can be used as an antiseptic dressing for wounds, and as a method to reduce bloating. In the days when corsets were the fashion, ladies would tuck some Lavender oil in a bottle around their necks to revive them when they were feeling faint. Lavender was also a popular strewing herb in the Middle Ages, and used as an ingredient in sachets to repel moths and other bugs from stored clothing. It was burned in sick rooms during the Bubonic Plague so as to help avoid the spread of the health problem. It was also used to scent leather. The smell of Lavender helps to lift the spirits. It is a helpful fragrance to have present at birth, since it calms the mother. Likewise, at death, when it helps calm the one about to depart, and their loved ones.

Lavender is stimulating and carminative. Its aromatic properties make it useful to add to lotions and creams. This herb has been used extensively in perfumes, soaps, and sachets. Lavender water, made from the essential oil, is used in therapeutic baths to help support nervous excitement. The oil may have a sedative action on the heart and will support healthy blood pressure levels. A small amount added to bland oils makes a useful application in skin problems, skin irritations, and a rub for rheumatic complaints. The primary chemical constituents of Lavender include essential oil (linalol, eucalyptol, geraniol, limonene, cineole), tannins, coumarins, flavonoids, and triterpenoids.

The herb exhibits activity against diphtheria, pneumonia, coughs and colds. Lavender is also useful as a disinfectant agent. Known topical uses include acne, burns, cellulite, cold sores, irritated skin, edema, fatigue, halitosis, headache, infection, insect bites, insect repellent, insect stings, irritability, joint pain, lice, muscle soreness, joint pain, skin rashes, scars, snakebites, toothache, vertigo, and yeast infections. Place a drop of Lavender essential oil on the edge of the mattress of a teething baby to calm him/her down. Use Lavender as a rinse for fragrant hair, and use it in massage oil, and as a salve for skin irritations. The common name Lavender also includes Lavendula viridis, Lavendula vera, Lavendula officinalis, and other Lavendula species, which are used interchangeably with Lavendula angustifolia.

General Herb Information

Lavender - Three varieties of lavender used in industry, health and in household preparations are beautiful additions to the garden picture. These are Spike (Lavandula spica), True or English (L. vera), or French (L. Stoechas). The last is easiest to identify. It is a small shrub with long, narrow, gray-green leaves; flowers are dark purple on spikes, topped by purple bracts; smells somewhat like Spike, but is not hardy in cold climates.

Spike lavender differs from True by broader, spatulate, green-gray leaves, more compact inflorescence, and bracts in axils where flowers are found are narrower. Stems of Spike are very long, interrupted and branching way above the body of the plant; flowers yield 3 times as much oil (called Spike oil) but inferior in quality to True, and has a piny note to the fragrance. It is often adulterated with oil of turpentine.

True lavender has narrow, blunt, blue-green leaves and comparatively large blue flowers in spikes on square stems; flowers are arranged in groups of from 6 to 10 in whorls, lower ones far apart from upper ones. Young leaves are apt to be found in groups in axils and are a downy, greenish white. True lavender is quite hardy and Spike less so unless protected.

Propagation: By seed, not easy and slow germination; by root division in spring; but cuttings, very easy.

Nature of Plant: Suitable for gray and for fragrant gardens; both flowers and leaves are fragrant.

Spacing of Mature Plants: From 12 inches to 3 feet, depending on the climate. In mild geographic locations, lavenders will grow to 3 feet in height but in temperate and colder places, the normal height is about 1 foot, with spikes of Spike lavender a foot or 18 inches higher. True lavender will spread if undisturbed.

Cultural Requirements: Light, gravelly or sandy soil in a sunny spot; dig in lime or chalk about roots several times a season. Plants must be grown in poor soil to produce the most fragrance; in good soil plants grow more luxuriantly but fragrant essential oils are lacking. Good drainage is essential or plants will winterkill.

From a few established plants cuttings may be taken in early spring and rooted; the next spring, roots may be divided, and so on to increase stock. Cuttings should be about 6 inches and are best taken by ripping a branch down quickly, thus getting a heel from the parent stalk. When roots have developed, dig the soil deeply and set plant well down.

Old plants must be well pruned every year for they become woody; prune after flower stalks have been cut. Keep young plants from blossoming the first year in order to bush them.

In fall, clear the ground around plants, dig in wood ashes, cover with salt hay or leaves. French lavender must be taken in and Spike is best taken in. Lavenders are subject to shrub issues shown by yellow shoots in the spring, and affected plants must be burned.

Uses

Flower: (Industrial) Spike for making oil of lavender and lavender water; True for making oil of aspic to dilute delicate colors for china painting, in varnish, spray to keep moths from clothes, herbal tobacco, snuff, toilet water, to perfume soaps and clean paint brushes; French for an inferior grade of oil;

(Household) packed away with clothes as moth fighter, to polish floors;

(Health) spirit of lavender used as stimulant and carminative when diluted and sweetened, oil rubbed on skin for ticks, as nervine and antiseptic to swab wounds, French for chest complaints.

The lavender fields of Provence have been described "In the solitude of the Lure mountains, lavender grows everywhere. At harvest time the evenings are lavender-embalmed. When you have lived the lavender nights and these days you are forever attached to the spirit of this perfume."

Lavender flowers are gathered when they first start to bloom and are dried on a cloth as they tend to fall apart. Lavender is most often used for perfuming, but it is also an excellent plant for infusions and has an agreeable floral flavor.

This fragrant member of the mint family is well-known for adding its natural perfume to the garden and to sachets, linens, and baths. The aromatic essential oil is derived from the plant's spiky, pale-purple flowers, which are also the part of the plant reviewed by Commission E.

Potential Health Benefits

Internally, lavender is used to lighten mood disturbances such as restlessness, end insomnia, dispel gas, and calm the stomach. Externally, it's used to perfume the bath and supportfunctional circulatory disorders.

Scientific Evidence

Lavender contains at least 1.5 percent essential oil, which includes camphor and "about 12 percent tannins unique to the family Laamiaacea," according to the commission. Lavender has been shown to work well against insomnia, among test subjects who sniffed fragrance of lavender. Scientific studies of more ambitious uses of lavender are scant.

herbal author Steven B. Karch, M.D., observes: "There has been pathetically little modern research on this herb. Laboratory studies suggest it is health-supporting. Very limited clinical trials with inhalation suggest some improvement in chronic coughing. For many centuries, the essential oil has been recommended as an antiseptic, but clinical trials have never been undertaken."

How to Use the Herb

Internally, as a tea, use 1-2 teaspoonfluls of dried flower per cup of water; with lavender oil, put 1-4 drops on a sugar cube. Externally, as a bath additive, sprinide anywhere from 20 to 100 grams of dried flowers in the water.

The odor of this beautiful plant is well known. The essence it contains is a hydrocarbon. The whole plant is used for health as a stimulant, sternutatory and tonic. It is a component in various preparations. Lavandula stoechas has been used in the early stages of paralysis and .Substantial medical benefits for lavender have never been demonstrated. On the other hand, there is no evidence of serious toxicity either, and the smell is very pleasing.

Lavender is probably best known in traditional toilet water but it can be been used as an antiseptic and perfumed addition to skin care preparations throughout the centuries, and being an essential element in home cleaning products because of its potential ability to deter infection and insects. The pungent and rejuvenating flowers and leaves make excellent infusions, water and herbal oils which can be added to all preparations for skin and hair care. Steamers and face masks made with lavender are beneficial for skins which have blemishes. The slightly astringent infusion in creams and lotions helps problem skin and to tone and condition oily hair.

It relaxes tired muscles in a soothing bath and energizes in after-bath colognes. Coollng and refreshing it makes excellent foot care preparations and as an antidote to sunburn. The essential oil of lavender can be used in a base oil as a massage to help support cellulite, to help mend acne, and as a herb that can be used for skin irritations and itchy scalp. Commercial lavender water can be used as a substitute for an infusion.

Lavender, Common or English
Lavandula angustifolia or Lavandula officinalis
(Culpeper: Lavandula spica)

Medicinal Usage

A strong antiseptic with disinfectant properties, lavender oil was used to help support cuts, bites, stings, burns, coughs and colds, chest infections, rheumatic aches, giddiness and flatulence. As a soothing tonic for nervous and digestive disorders, the herb was prescribed to help support tension, insomnia, and melancholy. William Turner, the 'father of English botany', said that "the flowers of lavender, quilted in a cap, comfort the brain very well." A sprig of lavender placed behind the ear was reputed to help support headaches. Culpeper warned that the oil "is of a fierce and piercing quality, and ought to be carefully used, a very few drops being sufficient for inward or outward maladies." The herb was also used in the form of lavender water, and tea.

Culinary Usage

Lavender leaves were added to salads, and used to flavour jellies, jams, vinegars, pottages and stews. The flowers were also crystallized.

Miscellaneous

A native of the Mediterranean region, lavender was introduced into England by the Romans. Its botanical name Lavandula derives from the Latin for to wash, a reference to its use by the Romans as a scented additive to their bath water. Grown in medieval monastic gardens, it was not only valued for its health properties, but for its beauty and fragrance, and as a strewing herb, insect-repellant,and a mask for unpleasant smells. The dried flowers were added to pot-pourri, herb cushions and sachets for freshening and keeping moths away from linen. The -oil was used in varnishes, perfumes, soaps and cosmetics.



Lavandula angustifolia, or garden lavender, produces spicy, fragrant, and mildly bitter flowers that can be used to support health. The systems of the body affected inlude the lungs and liver and the flowers exhibit aromatic, carminative, antispasmodic, and anti-melancholy properties. The biochemical constituents of lavender include a volatile oil made up of linalool, lavandulyl acetate, borneol, camphor, limonene, cadinene, coumarins, ursolic acid, and flavonoids (luteolin).

Lavender is extensively used in perfumery. Spike lavender, which contains higher amounts of camphor and cineole, can be used as an insect and moth repellant. It is usually placed in drawers to protect clothing from attack by moths.

Its use as a nervine and anti-melancholy is in keeping with the general tendency of plants with blue or purplish flowers to have cooling and nervine properties. A good formula for emotional upset and nervous melancholy is as follows: equal parts lavender flowers, lemon balm, skullcap, camomile and half part each of licorice and ginger roots. Steep one ounce in a pint of boiling water, covered, twenty minutes and take one cup two or three times daily or as needed.

Lavender is a traditional cottage-garden plant, its gray-green spiky foliage and spires of mauve-blue flowers providing color throughout the year. It is native to the Mediterranean and grows in profusion in the sun-baked Maquis region of southern France.

History

The Greeks and Romans used this highly aromatic plant to make perfumes and ointments. Since the Middle Ages, the dried flowers have been one of the main ingredients of potpourri and fresh sprigs were included in herbal bunches, known as "tussie mussies," to mask unpleasant household odors and ward off fevers.

Characteristics

The plant may grow to a height of 36 inches, but there are dwarf forms for edging. The stems are thick and woody, and become straggly if left unpruned. The leaves are long (about 3 inches), spiky, and very narrow. The tiny tubular flowers are carried on long spikes in thick clusters. The fibrous roots are shallow and wide spreading.

Growing Tips

The plants like a dry, well-drained, and preferably stony soil and a warm, sunny position. They should be lightly pruned in spring. Propagation of this evergreen shrub is by cuttings taken in spring or late summer.

How to Use

Fresh lavender flowers may be used to flavor syrup for jellies and fruit salad, and milk and cream for desserts. They may also be candied to decorate cakes.

Lavender is used extensively to make antiseptic, perfumed infusions, liquid extracts, herbal oils, cosmetic creams and lotions, toilet water, powders and deodorants, insect repellent and potpourri.

Health-wise,it is said to have anti-melancholy and mood-elevating effects, and has been used internally for the potential to help support symptoms of digestive problems, anxiety, joint pain, irritability, and tension and headaches. Applied externally, lavender is of benefit to burns and rheumatic pains.

Name

Lavandula angustifolia L. (Labiatae), commonly called lavender flower; in French, it is Lavande officinale; in German, Lavenclel.

Source

The plant originally came from the Mediterranean region and Southern Europe, but is now cultivated in almost any area with a sunny, dry climate.

History

The name of the plant almost surely derives from the Latin lavare, meaning to wash. The ancient Romans added the flowers and the essential oil to their baths, and stored sachets of the flowers with their clothes. The Greeks used the oil to help support skin problems.

Traditional Support Uses

Stimulant, antispasmodic and tonic. Also carminative and diuretic. More recently aromatherapists have recommended it as a "harmonizing" agent, good for the support for headache and sleeplessness.

Commission E Recommendations

Lavender can be used to help support circulatory and digestion issues, flatulence, insomnia, mood disturbances, nervous stomach and restlessness.

Possible Effects

There has been pathetically little modern research on this herb. Laboratory studies suggest that it is health-supporting. Very limited clinical trials with inhalation suggest some improvement in chronic coughing. For many centuries, the essential oil has been recommended as an antiseptic, but clinical trials have never been undertaken. The two main ingredients of the oil, linalyl acdetate (25-45 percent), and linalool (25-38 percent) are not known to possess any useful health properties, though they do have a lovely aroma.

Dosage

One to two teaspoon of dried herb soaked in one cup of boiling water for 15 minutes may be consumed as a tea three times a day.

The herb is taken as a tea (1.5 g) or 1 - 4 drops of oil (20 - 80 mL) can be taken internally in dilute form. A lavender bath can be prepared with 20 - 100 g of the dried herb in 20 litres of water. The herb or oil is included in calming teas and prepared sedatives, cholagogues and tonics.
