Amazing Lavender

"Many people appreciate lavender (Lavandula angustifolia, or Lavandula officinalis) for its fragrance, used in soaps, shampoos, and sachets for scenting clothes. The name lavender comes from the Latin root lavare, which means "to wash." Lavender may have earned this name because it was frequently used in baths to help purify the body and spirit. However, this herb has also been used as a remedy for a range of ailments from insomnia and anxiety to depression and fatigue. Research has confirmed that lavender produces slight calming, soothing, and sedative effects when its scent is inhaled."

"Vela ludi si vazi levandulu (Lavandula angustifolia, alebo Lavandula officinalis) koli jej voni, pouziti v mydlach, samponoch, a vrecuskach na prevonanie satstva. Meno lavender pochadza z latinskeho nazvu lavare, co znamena "umyvat." Levandula si vysluzila toto pomenovanie, pretoze bola casto pouzivana v kupeloch na ocistenie tela a duse. Avsak, tato bylinka sa tiez pouziva ako liek na rozne ochorenia, od nespavosti a uzkosti az po depresie a unavu. Vyskumy potvrdili, ze vona levandule ma ukopokujuce, ukludnujuce a utisujuce ucinky."

I love lavender! Smells so good to me. It use to have the connotation of only something little old ladies liked, so I'm glad it has become trendy again!
