Sedona Lavender Farms
Sedona Lavender Farm is currently undergoing a complete make over for the Spring of 2021
I will be scaling down from Farm to a parklike garden to make my workload a little more manageable. Trees are being planted to shade the lavender throughout the day to help it adjust to the rising heat of Summer that we are experiencing in Arizona. I have experimented throughout the years and found that the lavender in partial shade and sun can thrive and produce a great plant here in the southwest.
Market events will continue as usual while the new plants take root. I will keep you updated on the progress of the garden as it unfolds. Thanks to all of you so much for enjoying my products.
Benefits Of Lavender
Lavender oil is believed to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to heal minor burns and bug bites.
Research suggests that it may be useful for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness.
Some studies suggest that consuming lavender as a tea can help digestive issues such as vomiting, nausea, intestinal gas, upset stomach, and abdominal swelling.
In addition to helping with digestive problems, lavender is used to help relieve pain from headaches, sprains, toothaches, and sores. It can also be used to prevent hair loss.
A study published in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine compared the effects of several treatments for wound healing.
The researchers compared the effects of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), saline solution, povidone-iodine, and lavender oil. These were applied to laboratory rats.
The study authors noted that wounds closed faster in the TENS and lavender oil groups than the control groups. These findings suggest that lavender has an acceleratory effect on wound healing.
A review article in the International Journal of Psychiatry in Clinical Practice evaluates how effective Silexan might be for patients with different anxiety disorders. Silexan is a lavender-oil preparation available in 80-milligram (mg) gelatine capsules.
The team found that Silexan had an anxiolytic, or anxiety-reducing, effect on patients with generalized or subsyndromal anxiety within 2 weeks.
