At the first sight, it looks impossible and completely irrelevant that lavender oil can help people who suffer from diabetes. At least most doctors and experts believe that. However, a study back in 2014 proved that lavender oil can help people with diabetes. In a matter of fact, it offers several benefits and it is highly recommended.
The study we just mentioned has been conducted in Tunisia and the final result proved that lavender oil can reduce most of the risks diabetes has on patients. The best benefit is that all you need to do is to buy pure lavender oil and use it once per day, as people in the study did. In essence, this essential oil will reduce the risk of:
- Changed metabolism.
- Weight gain.
- The increase of the glucose levels.
- Antioxidant depletion in the liver in kidneys (this is one of the reasons why diabetes is deadly).
- Other liver and kidney damages.
The biggest issue is that this was obtained by just one study. There are no additional information nor additional details, conducted elsewhere in the world. Nevertheless, chances are high that this is promising research that may help cure or at least treat diabetes. In other words, lavender may become the best cure we have for diabetes.
