Did you know that since ancient times lavender oil has been used for bathing? Our ancestors knew that the oil coming from this herb has wonderful benefits for the skin. In fact, the term lavender comes from the Latin word “lavare” which means “to wash”.
Lavender oil contains anti-fungal and antiseptic properties that make it effective as treatment for many types of skin problems including acne, eczema, sunburn and many more.
Not only that, lavender can tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles by boosting blood circulation, and supplying sufficient nutrition and oxygen to the skin cells.
Apart from skin benefits, it has also numerous perks for the health. On top of the list is that lavender promotes good quality sleep, which in turn also helps keep the skin young and fresh.
Chamomile, meanwhile, is antiseptic and antibacterial. It can treat skin infections before they get worse. It also diminishes scars, which you may find very difficult to get rid of. And since chamomile can induce relaxation, it can also help keep wrinkles and fine lines caused by stress at bay.
