The lavender essential oil has been used for centuries as a soothing scent. Research has shown that the herb reduces anxiety by slowing down your pulse rates.

It also helps to calm the entire body. In addition, lavender has been shown to have other medicinal properties, including reducing depression, helping you sleep better and even easing pains associated with headaches.
