Lavender for inner peace

Lavender is a mild sedative that helps relieve anxiety, stress exhaustion and sleep disorders, and also helps cure anxiety-based digestive disorders. In folk medicine, lavender stimulates appetite, regulates digestion, helps excrete bile acids, relieves abdominal cramps, helps eliminate bloating, relieves flatulence and helps fight water retention; it has calming effects that aid sleep, and at the same time, it helps prevent syncope. Scented lavender baths help treat circulatory system diseases and alleviate menopausal symptoms. Essential oil is an ingredient in anti-rheumatic ointments and also in salves that help relieve diseases with itching skin; it is also used in oral hygiene products. In phytomedicine, lavender is a common ingredient in teas that induce sedation, and its extracts are used in sedatives and in medication used to relieve bile acids and boost immunity. In terms of topical use, lavender is used for treatment of minor wounds, burns and superficial sunburn. Lavender bags will scent a room, disinfect laundry and repel insects.

Rest your head on the scented pillow in the LAVENDER room (Slovenian for lavender: SIVKA).

Lavender has been a part of everyday life since the ancient times

With its heady scent, lavender began its home invasion already in the ancient times. The Romans used it as a fragrance in their baths, believing that it had great skin repair properties. Its name is probably derived from the Latin verb "lavare", meaning "to wash." Through Roman baths, lavender soon made its way into all other home spaces. Later on, when its beneficial healing properties got discovered, lavender also found its place in the kitchen. For home use, in addition to pleasantly scenting the rooms, lavender is also popular because of one extremely useful characteristic - it is a natural repellent that helps get rid of annoying moths.
