Like oil, lavender is as good as herbal tea because it treats indigestion.  Lavender stimulates bile and gastric juices that reduce constipation. It also reduces stomach ache and diarrhea.

  1. Toxic-free air freshener

  1. It cures certain diseases

A new research on lavender shows that it treats diabetes, liver and kidney issues, metabolic disorders, and obesity. But, don’t use lavender oil without consulting your doctor.  Apart from its benefits, lavender has some side effects. Like, it’s not good for pregnant women; it interacts with some medicines and may have bad effects on hormones, especially among boys. So, use lavender oil carefully in all these conditions.

Try using the “Purple Haze” all natural, vegan, organic and non-GMO soap bar, to treat your skin after a long day for calming and relaxing before a good night sleep.
