We favor the University of Maryland because Veronica's husband went there and our lavender farm is in southern Maryland. We found out today that the University of Maryland Medical Center has an article on the medical uses, doses and precautions of lavender in their complementary and alternative medicine guide.
The article is a great resource on how lavender can be an alternative treatment for insomnia or agitation, Alopecia areata and many other skin benefits. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease that causes the loss of hair, many men and women experience this same problem with age or part of their genetics. If you have just began to notice hair loss or you have tried everything else, lavender is a great natural alternative to try. Our miracle body salve is perfect for rubbing on areas that need regrowth of hair. The UMD study states that those rubbed their scalps with the essential oils had "significant hair regrowth". What do you think, have you given lavender a try on your crown?
