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.
In small doses, lavender often lowers androgen symptoms such as acne and body hair. A sign of lavender's estrogenic properties is its ability to cause elongation of breast appearance, suggesting lavender's positive effects on Estrogen Receptor Alpha (ER⍺).
A property of lavender is that it promotes the menstrual cycle, suggesting it has mild androgenic properties.
Lavender for breast enlargement
When androgens symptoms are low, lavender can cause breast shrinkage.
Herbal concentrates can be tens of times more potent by weight than herbs in dry form. For this reason, concentrate extracts are not recommended for extended or excessive internal use, especially during fertility years. Another issue with herbal extracts, is that they may not have the full range of properties of the herb. If opting to use herb extracts, use no more than 2 drops at a time diluted in a carrier oil (like unrefined olive oil) or water.
