Lavender as a Sleep Aid

Since ancient times lavender has been recommended for people suffering from insomnia or other sleep disorders. People stuffed their pillows with lavender flowers to help them fall asleep and get a better night’s rest.

Today, we use lavender to treat headaches and nervousness or restlessness. Massage therapists sometimes apply lavender oil to the skin, which may function both as a calming agent and a sleep aid. In Germany, lavender tea has been approved as a supplement to treat sleep disruptions, restlessness, and stomach irritation.
