The name lavender has been derived from the Latin word “lavare” which means “to wash”.
Lavender flowers have been used since times immemorial in different ways. During World War I, it was used to treat and disinfect wounds. The English placed the lavender flowers in their hats to treat headache and sunstroke. Women often kept lavender sachets in their closets and wardrobes for fragrance, while hospitals used it an antiseptic and disinfectant to sterilize surfaces. Thus, both lavender oil and flowers have therapeutic value.
It carries a tremendous benefit for skin cells. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects and repairs your skin. Antioxidants are agents that neutralize the oxidant effect of free radicals, which are molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles
Consuming vitamin E through food isn’t the only way to benefit. When applied topically, it interacts directly with the skin cells, neutralizing free radicals in the skin and preventing many signs of aging, as well as skin cancer risks. As oil, vitamin E can also help improve skin hydration. Some evidence points to the use of vitamin E to speed cellular regeneration on the skin, which can help the healing process for scars and acne.
