English Lavender Essential Oil: Aromatherapy for Relaxation and Improved Sleep

Lavender is known for its grassy and floral scent, and it’s been a popular essential oil in aromatherapy practices for centuries. It’s becoming increasingly common for lavender to be incorporated into daily routines and more people are starting to explore its variety of health benefits. There are several different species of lavender, each with their unique properties. 

Below we have explored the rich heritage, aromatic properties and therapeutic advantages of English lavender, focusing on its remarkable ability to promote relaxation and improve sleep quality. Whether you're looking for a natural remedy for stress relief or trying to reduce tossing and turning at night, English lavender essential oil can have a big impact. 

Origin and Heritage

Lavandula, a genus of 47 known species of flowering plants in the mint family, is most famously associated with the enchanting fragrance of lavender. Despite its name, this lavender variety commonly known as ‘English lavender’ doesn’t originate in England. It’s from the sun-soaked regions of the Mediterranean Sea, Southern Europe, Africa and South Asian countries. 

The English lavender we use at anatomē in our essential oils and pillow sprays grows in the idyllic fields of Cornwall. It has a strong scent and has a diverse range of uses. 

Aromatic Allure

English lavender is renowned for its robust grassy and floral scent, making it a great addition to any aromatherapy regimen. Its aromatic charm has captivated the senses for generations, not just making it an enticing fragrance but providing therapeutic properties. The oil of English lavender is typically used to help with sleep issues as well as anxiety and depression. Sometimes, it can even be beneficial for treating acne and eczema too. 

Therapeutic Advantages

Lavender essential oil is celebrated for its therapeutic benefits. One of its prominent attributes is the capacity to induce relaxation and promote improved sleep. The primary constituents of lavender essential oil, including linalool, linalyl acetate, 1,8-cineole, B-ocimene, terpinen-4-ol, and camphor, offer several benefits. The level of these constituents varies across different Lavandula species, offering unique aromatic profiles and distinct therapeutic effects.

Our signature blend at anatomē uses three types of lavender; Cornish, Himalayan and Provençal. Together, they promote restorative rest by reducing cortisol levels in the body. 

The Power of Lavender

The remarkable power of lavender essential oil lies in its ability to stimulate the neurotransmitter GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid). This pivotal neurotransmitter plays a significant role in calming the nervous system, reducing anxiety and stress, and enhancing sleep quality. This has resulted in lavender essential oil becoming a popular natural remedy for people who are seeking relaxation, stress relief and rejuvenating sleep.

Using Lavender Essential Oil

Incorporating lavender essential oil into your daily routine is simple and effective. Whether through a diffuser, massage oil or by adding a few drops to your bath, the calming and soothing properties of English lavender can work wonders for a restful night's sleep, as well as addressing concerns like anxiety, depression and skin conditions such as acne and eczema.
