Lavender is well known as a calming scent but the herb is also believed to have a calming effect on your digestive system. If buying it at the store, make sure it is marked as edible and if picking your own, English Lavender is the best type. Choose unsprayed flowers when they are in full bud but not yet blooming. Pick lavender buds in the morning when their essential oils are at their most vibrant and then pick them from their stems for use fresh or dry them for use later.
