Abstract [sv]

The purpose of the review is to learn about the physiological and psychological effects of lavender on women's health in a Spa environment. The results are based upon articles found in the Pubmed database and litterature. Even though there were some articles suggesting a negative effect of essential lavender oil, most of the results pointed towards lavender as a healing and positive remedy for menopausal symptoms, back pain, wound healing, and conditions like stress, insomnia and anxiety. The conclusion is that, though lavender can be used in treating a lot of conditions, it should be used with caution and not in its concentrated form, to avoid skin reactions and allergies.
