Lavender is an herb. The flower and the oil of lavender are used to make medicine.
Lavender is used for restlessness, insomnia, nervousness, and depression.
How to use lavender as a sleep aid:
Unlike many other herbs, lavender is most often used as a form of aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils and aromatic compounds inhaled to affect a person’s mood or health. In explanation, when used to induce calming effects, the lavender aroma should be inhaled.
The recommended way of doing this is to dilute 2 to 4 drops of the essential oil in 2 to 3 cups of boiling water.
The vapors from the boiling water should then be inhaled (done by wafting the vapor, not directly inhaling steam). Breathing in the vapors have been cited to help with relaxation which then in turn, could provide evidence for treating insomnia.
In addition to using the lavender as an aromatic, many use lavender internally by taking it in the form of tea. This can be done by taking 1 to 2 teaspoons of the lavender leaves, steeping them in one cup of boiling water for 15 minutes, and then ingesting the tea after it has cooled.
Finally, lavender can be used as a tincture. A tincture is an alcohol-based derivative of a natural plant material. The mixture should be at approximately a 1:5 ratio. When using lavender in this form, one should use 40 to 60 drops per day.
Lavender essential oil is also useful for acne treatment, natural stress relief, prevention of candida albicans, and used for a variety of digestive complaints including meteorism (abdominal swelling from gas in the intestinal or peritoneal cavity), loss of appetite, vomiting, nausea, and upset stomach, and much more...

Women have to always worry about tone, demeanor and body language to make sure the idea is packaged just so... Nilofer Merchant
As a high-level executive, Merchant says she has also experienced the perils of being a leader who expresses cheerfulness.
Not only are friendliness and competence often seen as contradictory, she says, but women are also expected to be nice, which puts them in a Catch-22 situation.
"We are judged as people one doesn't want to work with if we are competent and not also nice. It means women have to always worry about tone, demeanor and body language to make sure the idea is packaged just so," she said.
"Some days I manage this. Others, not so much. And frankly, I wish for a day when no woman has to do the double duty of both coming up with a brilliant idea to save a company or industry, and also win the prize for cheerfulness. There's only so much energy any of us have."
