scientists from BERC have provided substantial evidence that downy lavender essential oil is an important natural source of biologically active molecules such as antioxidants, microbes, Alzheimer's and obesity. This study demonstrates for the first time the possibility of combining the use of lavender essential oil as a type of complementary medicine with clinical applications in the management of dermatophytic infections, Alzheimer's disease and obesity.
