Why bother with lavender lemonade?
Because anxiety is a hugely prevalent mental health issue.
And even if you don’t suffer from anxiety, you probably get a headache now and then.
We don’t always want to be rushing to the doctor or drugstore. Especially when there are effective, affordable, natural steps you can take to fight off anxiety and headaches.
Lavender is an aromatic herb that calms the senses. And lavender oil possesses a whole host of other amazing properties: anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antidepressant, antiseptic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antispasmodic, analgesic, detoxifier, hypotensive, and sedative.
