According to the US National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health, several animal and human studies suggest that lavender may be an effective treatment for certain neurological disorders. Among other things, they show that lavender has mood stabilizing, sedative, and analgesic properties. Of course that's no surprise to Indie Business Network members who grow and harvest lavender at their farms across the nation, using it to create products to help you enjoy the many positive effects of this lovely plant.
Just in case you thought the best lavender in the world came from France, I've got some news for you. The best lavender is right here in the US of A, and you can get it from our members!
