Lavender Study

Generalized anxiety is a widespread problem in America, made worse by the fact that typical medications (benzodiazepines) are highly addictive with a host of nasty side-effects. We came across a study that shows lavender oil can be just as effective as these medications to treat anxious feelings, without side-effects. This quote from the study is amazing:

“The results suggest that silexan [lavender oil pill] effectively ameliorates generalized anxiety comparable to a common benzodiazepine...Since lavender oil showed no sedative effects in our study and has no potential for drug abuse, silexan appears to be an effective and well tolerated alternative to benzodiazepines for amelioration of generalised anxiety.”
