The symptoms of jetlag after a long flight are well recognized: sleep disturbances, disorientation, nervous fatigue and dehydration. Due to its regulating effect on the systems of the body, lavender can be a great aid in overcoming jet lag problems.
Freshen up frequently during the flight using a little lavender water, or inhale lavender oil from a tissue. In addition, use a lavender moisturizing cream to prevent dryness of the skin.
After arriving, if possible, take a long bath using 8-10 drops of lavender – this helps readjust the physiological and psychological rhythms.
To help revive body and mind, use a stimulating oil such as rosemary (5-10 drops) in the bath.
