Lavender is often used in heating pads because it smells so good! However, there is science behind the aroma. Fresh lavender, dried herbs and lavender oil are all known to be extremely calming, promoting concentration, sleep and stress reduction. Attributes like those, combined with soothing warmth from microwave heat packs are the perfect combination!
Organic lavender plants, like the ones grown on our farm, produce linalool and linalyl acetate. These compounds have been shown in studies to produce anxiety relief by promoting relaxation.
