Scientists at Chulalongkorn University, a premier research institution in Thailand, have investigated the effects of lavender oil on nervous systems and mood responses in humans. Results confirm that exposure to lavender oil significantly reduces heart rate, blood pressure, and skin temperature – all of which are associated with relaxation. Participants also reported feeling more active and refreshed following exposure. This study is among many that have shown the impressive extent of lavender’s calming properties. Now your horse can enjoy them, too!
