Lavender oil became a medication in Germany under the name Silexan® and in the US as CalmAid®, primarily to treat anxiety, now also used as an antidepressant [2].



Alopecia can also be treated with this oil. In a 1999 study [3] and associating lavender with two other oils, thyme and rosemary, it was found that this mixture can stimulate hair growth after seven months of treatment.
