Rest and Relax
Be good to yourself, family, and friends by promoting relaxation with these Lavender scented candles. Ancient Egyptians and Romans used Lavender over 2,500 years ago. Lavender is a hypnotizing scent promoting calmness and wellness. The scent reduces stress, improves sleep, and relieves anxiety. Lavender works with the neurotransmitter GABA, a chemical messenger in the brain, to help quiet the brain and relax nervous system activity. This scent reduces agitation, anger, aggression, and restlessness.
Lavender has a long history. The ancient Egyptians used Lavender as a perfume and incense. Ancient Persia, Greece, and Rome added Lavender to their baths and used it for healing and and as an aphrodisiac in the Middle ages. Cleopatra used its fragrance in her grand seductions. When the tomb of Tutankhamun was opened, they found lavender that still had its amazing scent (Perry 2019).
Lavender originated in the Greek Hyeres Islands and was brought to France, Spain, Italy, and England by the Arabians around 600 BC. The use of Lavender is traced so far back that the Bible references it in the gospel of Luke, the gospel of John, and the Song of Solomon. The scriptures refers to the plant as “spikenard,” its original name. One of the common passages mentions Lavender in the book of John where they refer to Mary annointing the feet of Jesus with Lavender.
