This is about lavender, including its hormonal properties and use for breast enhancement.
The genus of Lavender goes by the scientific name of Lavandula. Like Mentha, it also belongs to the Lamiaceae or Mint family. Labiatae is another name for the Mint family.
Lavender products have been linked to gynecomastia. From here, lavender has been determined to have estrogenic properties, and dihydrotestosterone (DHT) lowering ability.
Consistent with studies showing lavender's estrogenic properties, anecdotal evidence from comparing hormonal effects of lavender to mint, suggests that lavender has aromatase properties. Aromatase is the conversion of androgens, except DHT, into estrogen. Lavender lowers androgen symptoms such as acne and body hair. Another sign of lavender's estrogenic properties is lavender's ability to cause elongation of breast appearance, suggesting lavender's positive effects on Estrogen Receptor Alpha (ER⍺).
Lavender for breast enlargement
Lavender should be taken in the smallest dosages with mint and clover. Lavender taken without an LH raising herb such as mint, will not produce much results, as estrogens are converted from androgens.
Herbal concentrates can be tens of times more potent by weight than herbs in dry form. For this reason, concentrate extracts of lavender are not recommended for extended or excessive internal use, especially before menopause.
