Observations and Anecdotal Information

Once used to make an herbal tea with fennel and cinnamon,  it has been in continuous medicinal use since the 1400’s.  It has a stronger camphor note than domesticated lavenders, and a more medicinal aroma.  European alchemists referred to this plant remedy as Aspic, and used it for many diverse conditions and ailments.

Spike lavender has blood thinning properties, and can be taken internally at proper dilution for this purpose.  It is also extremely helpful for skin conditions, including athlete’s foot, ringworm, acne, and fungal infections.

A mild cardiotonic, spike lavender strengthens the heartbeat and helps raise blood pressure that is too low.

It is also a powerful antibacterial antiviral, and anti fungal.  It stimulates the immune system.  Its immune enhancing properties make it one of the best diffusion oils for treating symptoms of viral and bacterial infections.

I have found it to be a real fast acting acne treatment; place a drop of undiluted spike lavender on the break out or inflamed skin, and leave it over night.  Often the blemish will be nearly gone by morning.
