Benefits and harms of lavender plant

Biologist Roman Oparin, associate professor at the Department of General Biology and Bioecology at the Faculty of Natural Sciences of the Russian Educational University, revealed the benefits and harms of the lavender plant.

The scientist points out that lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is a plant that has soothing properties. It is widely used in the field of aromatherapy and cosmetology to improve the condition of the skin and hair, as well as to relax and relieve stress. It also has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties and helps improve sleep.

He says: "Lavender can be used in food as a spice. It is added to some drinks to give them a special flavour. It is also added to some types of sweets for a distinctive taste, and also to cleaning materials to give a pleasant scent. Dried lavender can be added to tea to obtain a soothing drink that has a refreshing flavour." . According to him, it should not be overused, because an overdose gives the dish or drink a bitter taste.

He says: "It must be taken into account that consuming lavender in large quantities or in a very concentrated form may cause negative effects, including allergies, headaches, and nausea. Therefore, it is advised to exercise moderation and consult a doctor before using it as a food plant or medicinal product."
