For those who know me, you know how much I am a lover of Lavander. Lavandin is a kind of "poor" cousin of Lavander, poor in a sense that is the cheapest in this family. The aroma and medicinal properties of Lavandin are quite similar to those of Lavender or even more advantageous, but they are more intense and sharp since it is a hybrid.
The main properties of Lavandin are: antidepressant, antiseptic, analgesic, cicatrisant, expectorant, nervine, and vulnerary substance.
  • Antidepressant: Lavandin oil boosts self-esteem, confidence, hope, and mental strength, while efficiently fighting depression. This can be very helpful to drive away depression for those who are suffering from depression due to a failure in their career or personal relationships, insecurity, loneliness, stagnation, someone’s death, or for any other reason. This also relieves anxiety. As an antidepressant, it can be systematically administered to patients with acute depression who are undergoing rehabilitation. Really good to do a daily meditation.
  • Antiseptic: The essential oil of Lavandin has certain compounds which contribute to its antiseptic properties. By virtue of this property, Lavandin Oil can protect wounds from becoming septic. It is found to be effective in preventing incisions from becoming septic or getting infected from tetanus, particularly after surgery, caesarian deliveries, and other wounds.
  • Analgesic: The word analgesic simply means an agent that reduces pain and inflammation. Lavandin essential oil helps reduce pain in the muscles and joints, as well as toothaches and headaches that may result from viral infections like a cough and cold, influenza, fever, and pox.
  • Cicatrisant: This is an interesting property of Lavandin oil. It makes scars and after marks of boils, acne, and a pox on the skin fade away. This includes the fading away of stretch marks, surgery marks, and fat cracks that are associated with pregnancy and the delivery of a child. A really SOS skin in any occasion.
  • Expectorant: This essential oil drives away coughs and the phlegm that is deposited in the respiratory tracts and lungs. Also, it gives relief for bronchitis and congestion of the nasal tract, larynx, pharynx, bronchi, and lungs. It also gives relief from body pain, headaches, toothaches, and a rise in body temperature that is associated with a cold.
  • Nervine: A nervine is an agent that keeps the nervous system in order and in good health. Lavandin oil acts as a tonic for the nerves and the nervous system. It helps to cure many nervous disorders, such as shaking hands or limbs, nervousness, vertigo, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and convulsions, sluggishness, and a lack of reflexes. It strengthens nerves and activates them
  • Vulnerary: Lavandin oil speeds up the healing of wounds, cuts, and surgical incisions and also protects them from infections. This property makes it a vulnerary. This is aided by its other properties as an antiseptic and cicatrisant substance.
Other Benefits: It relieves the deposition of phlegm, cramps, stiffness, and pain in muscles, and helps cure sinusitis, dermatitis, and colds.
Blending: Lavandin oil blends perfectly with essential oils of Bergamot, Citronella, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Rosemary, Pine, Jasmine, Thyme, and Patchouli.
