So let's get into more detail about seven of the biggest advantages that this scent can bring to your nervous system.

It Reduces Stress and Anxiety

Reducing anxiety is probably the most commonly known benefit of lavender.  As this fragrance is a natural relaxing agent.

The herb has such powerful relaxing properties, that research has even proved that it can be used to minimize generalized anxiety disorder symptoms in as little as two weeks. And more: it can be used to alleviate symptoms of depression, an even more severe mental illness and due to calming effects of lavender, it may even reduce blood pressure. With anti-depressant pharmaceuticals skyrocketing these days, it is nice to see a natural way to reduce generalized anxiety disorder and symptoms of melancholy and depression. The alternative benefit is that lavender, is not going to lead to dependency unlike some pharmaceutical agents.

It Reduces the Frequency of Headaches

Another area, where pharmaceutical agents are growing is in the migraine arena. Anyone who suffers from constant migraines knows how debilitating they can be. Although they're not curable, there are ways of reducing the symptoms depending on when the migraines are caught.

Our advice is that you give lavender scented candles a try. Believe it or not, there have been studies that speak to the many benefits of Lavender. There is actually a research study from medical journals that showed doing a lavender aromatherapy treatment for three months can reduce the frequency and intensity of migraines with no side effects. This is pretty remarkable when you think about it since we live in such a medicated society. It is refreshing to see that something natural, like Lavender can have such a calming & soothing effect to reduce the severity of headaches and migraines.

Lavender Can Help With Insomnia (Tossing & Turning)

This benefit is closely related to the first one because if your brain is constantly going a mile a minute, it becomes very hard to get a good night of sleep. Believe me, I am sure we have all been there before. A racing mind, how do we calm this down? Perhaps the answer again lies in Lavender. Lavender oil aromatherapy candles may improve sleep.

As a matter of fact, studies have shown that a lavender aromatherapy candle can improve sleep quality in just four to six weeks.

So if you struggle with falling asleep or staying asleep for the whole night, it might be a good idea to keep a lavender oil candle in your bedroom. Perhaps you wind down with a book for 15-30 minutes and a lavender scented candle. Try this out for a few weeks and see how your sleep patterns change and evolve.

It Can Possibly Help Treat Alopecia Areata

Alopecia Areata can be caused by several different circumstances, one of them being extreme stress. Stress is very debilitating as we all know, if we can alleviate this, that would be great. Well again the calming effects of lavender may be able to do just that! Additionally, now that you know how relaxing the scent of lavender can be, we'd like to share that it can also help with alopecia. 

In this case, however, you'll get quicker and more evident results if you go for lavender in the form of essential oil. Who knew a lavender candle could possess so many possible super powers? Amazing!

It Can Possibly Ease the Symptoms of PMS

Every woman has been there and some women have more intense symptoms than others on a monthly basis, but the days before menstruation tend to come with a lot of emotions that are not always easy to handle.

Studies have shown that lavender candles therapeutic benefits can improve the activity of our parasympathetic nervous system. For this reason, it can successfully regulate PMS symptoms. Once again, lavender candles are producing more and more benefits.

It Can Possibly Help To Treat Symptoms of PTSD

Lavender candles can help with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the same way that it can help with anxiety. The calming and soothing benefits lavender candles provides has the same type of calming effect in PTSD symptoms as it does in anxiety symptoms.

PTSD typically manifests in panic, extreme stress, nightmares, and depression. The solution is to find ways to calm the brain which is why lavender candles may be a great option for people suffering from PTSD.
