3 Calming Effects of Lavender

Lavender has been calming people down for over 2500 years: The Egyptians (mummification). The Romans (scenting baths). Queen Elizabeth I (her favorite perfume). Although you probably love lavender for its pretty purple hue and calming cues, its power goes far beyond that.
