Benefits of Lavender

How Does Lavender Work?

It is not known exactly how lavender may work. Lavender contains several different compounds that may have medicinal properties. Some of these compounds may have sedative, anti-spasm, anti-seizure, anti-inflammatory, and pain-relieving effects. Some compounds in lavender may also act like estrogens. Different parts of the lavender plant may contain different active compounds.
 

Lavender Use in Children

Although a normal amount of lavender in foods or applied to the skin as lotions or creams is probably fine for most children, check with your child's healthcare provider before giving your child lavender orally or before applying strong lavender preparations to the skin. Children can be more sensitive to the toxicities of medications or herbal supplements.
