Lavender herb is a calming agent used to reduce stress and promote relaxation. Lavender essential oils are used in massage therapy, aromatherapy candles, soaps and other bath products. Lavender flowers are used in the making of sweet smelling sachets that can be placed near the bed or tucked inside a pillow case to induce a restful night's sleep. Lavender compresses applied to the temples or forehead help to ease painful headaches.
