Scientists believe that lavender is dangerous for adolescents
American experts seriously fear the negative impact of lavender on adolescent health.
The fact is that the essential oil of the plant becomes the cause of the active growth of the mammary glands in children, and not only in girls: in boys, too, quite obvious breasts begin to appear.
Scientists believe that the main reason is that lavender in its effect is similar to estrogen, which, as you know, does not allow testosterone to be produced in the required amount.
To protect children from negative influences, it is worth not only prohibiting the use of lavender essential oil in its pure form, but also reading the compositions of all cosmetic and hygiene products.
As you know, lavender extract is loved to add to the bath foam, soap (especially handmade), body cream. The plant was too dangerous for the hormonal background of the growing organism.
