Things to Know About Using Lavender
- Make sure you use lavender that is grown outside in the sun, not indoors (hydroponic). The beneficial element of phosphorus in lavender is very active when photosynthesised with sunlight. Know your source.
- Lavender needs to be mature (over 3 years old.) The best lavender is 8-10 years old, grown in a strong UV geography.
- Ayurvedic properties have been decided by yukti (intellect) by tasting and feeling the plant as well as discussion with Vaidyas and fellow Ayurvedic scholars
