Lavender oil is used as a traditional herbal remedy to relieve mild symptoms of mental stress and exhaustion, and as a sleep aid [2]. In folk medicine, lavender is also used internally to treat flu, bronchitis, rheumatism, migraine. Externally, lavender baths are recommended for tension, exhaustion or poorly healing wounds [3,4]. Lavender oil also has antibacterial and antioxidant properties [5].*

The lavender flower extract is very widely applicable in the food industry. It can be used for flavouring alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, ice creams , confectionery, chewing gum and bakery products. It also adds a special nuance to spice mixtures and sauces. Especially in the beverage industry, beverages with flower flavours like lavender are trendy and very popular.*
