Benefits of Lavender

Fairmont At Home

Prized for its fragrance, medicinal properties, and beautiful bluish-purple colour, Lavender is a popular plant commonly used in culinary and aromatherapy. Believed to originate from the Mediterranean, Middle East, and India region, Lavender has been utilized for centuries to relieve fatigue and stiff joints, calms the mind, and improve sleep and keep bed bugs away.

Do you know that Lavender derives its name from the Latin 'lavare' meaning 'to wash'?

Lavender can be used by itself or in combination with other herbs to create a peaceful, serene, and relaxing atmosphere while neutralizing any stale, lingering bad vibes. So why not mist a little Lavender into your midst with our Lavender Room Spray, infused with bergamot essence.

Throughout history, Lavender has promoted healthier skin and good hygiene, and is synonymous with relaxation and self-care. Finding soap for sensitive skin can be challenging due to the harsh chemicals and preservatives added to conventional bars of soap. Le Chateau Du Boi’s Lavender-scented Pure Plant Soap Bar uses certified organic lavender oil and shea butter that is gentle enough for your face. Moreover, showering with Lavender soap will help improve your outdoor time as Lavender oil is a natural insect repellent.

Do you know that Lavender is also one of the most widely grown essential oil crops in the world?

While there is limited research to support the benefits of Lavender oil, it is suggested that using Lavender Essential Oil can help soothe the symptoms of certain respiratory conditions such as the common cold and flu, cough, or sinus congestion. Some research also indicates that using lavender essential oil can promote wound healing as It speeds up the rate of healing, increases the expression of collagen while keeping our skin elastic.

Do you know that Medieval Europeans considered Lavender to be an emblem of love?

Because Lavender induces a calm vibe, burning a Lavender-scented Candle in the bedroom or carrying a Lavender-scented Bag will enchant those around you.
