Is there an oil that can be compared to the great mother of essential oils, the mighty and gentle Lavender? Its aroma is floral, woodsy and herbal. Nourishing to the heart and nerves, it is calming, supportive, and warms the spirit, contributing to inner peace, emotional healing, and harmony of the mind and body. Calming the nervous system at any point in the day can contribute to better quality rest. (Remember to snuff your candle out if you might be ready for sleep!).
When we have emerged from deep dolor, when anger has been placated, when fears are seen clearly, the mind is crisp, the internal organs are rejuvenated, and one’s spirits are lifted. Lavender oil comforts like a mother soothing her child, completely present with compassion, a warm embrace, and a gentle song. But there is also a slight sharpness to it that says, “Ok, now you have what you need. It’s time to fly! I’ll be here when you need me.”
Energetics: Ultimately, Lavender is an adaptogen, contributing to balance. Ayurvedically speaking, it certainly reduces both pitta and kapha, while simultaneously nourishing vata. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is considered to calm the mind/spirit/heart (shen) and regulate Qi, and is especially good for clearing heat in the lungs (which should be well noted for those coping with grief).
Bottom line: Lavender is the bottom line. Globally, there is tremendous reverence given to a compassionate, loving, and nourishing nature. The delight of lavender is that its aroma seems to cultivate the expression of these traits, and simultaneously help you feel their effect. The world would surely benefit from more lavender. But as they say, peace begins at home.
