Lavender has amazing effects on stress levels!
There are a lot of bogus anxiety remedies out there from almonds to deep breathing exercises. And while these techniques work better for some than others, there’s one that’s scientifically proven to seriously lessen your anxiety. Grab onto your lavender scented beauty supplies, because the smell is about to seriously chill you out.
Lavender comes in many forms – scented candles, perfumes, bubble baths, and oils. But there are also lavender flavorings for your teas and coffees that could have the calming effect you want out of it. A recent study showed that mice exposed to the smelly stuff in lavender showed way less anxiety than mice exposed to just our normal, anxiety-inducing air.
It’s actually so calming that surgeons are starting to use it to calm patients down before procedures. So if you’re looking to calm those pre-test nerves or just looking to relax before a night in bed with bae, lavender could be your key to success!
