Organic Lavender herbs from Myrovolos Organics is used in aromatherapy and as a decoction. In modern herbal therapy, dried lavender flowers are mainly used to reduce anxiety and hypertension. Lavender is generally thought to have calming properties and can, therefore, be used in cases of melancholy and mild depression. It is also thought by some researchers to be hypotensive – a cup of lavender before sleep is said to “shed” the pressure and reduces tachycardia during the night. Lavender can become a decoction if you leave it in boiling water for about 10 minutes.
