Lavender is a medicinal plant. Its aroma is not only soothing, but its flowers contain tannin which is its main medicinal property. Lavender flowers have an antiseptic and calming activity; they also produce nerve stimulating effects. They are used in cases of digestive disorder, in hypertension, cardiac affections, headaches, insomnia, melancholia, dizziness or bronchial asthma. All of this can be accomplished by making a tea of the blooms either fresh or dried. In addition, they are beautiful plants.
