Abstract: Several studies have investigated the antinociceptive, immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory properties of compounds found in the lavender essential oil (LEO), however to date, there is still lack of substantial data. The objective of this study was to assess the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive effects of lavender essential oil. The 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl radical decolorization assay was used for antioxidant activity evaluation. The anti-inflammatory activity was tested using two mod… Show more

“…Radicals DPPH and ABTS have been used to determine the scavenger mechanism of antioxidant compounds (Govindappa et al 2011, Hamsar et al 2011, Silva et al 2015. Our results demonstrated that compounds a-d did not present DPPH and ABTS radical-scavenger activities, suggesting that radical-scavenger activity is not the mechanism by which compounds displayed an antioxidant effect.…”

“…In vitro tests have demonstrated that lavender oil has analgesic (Silva et al 2015) and anaesthetic effects (Ghelardini et al 1999). Lavender scent in the room prevents deterioration in work performance (Sakamoto et al 2005), may improve memory and the health state of people with Alzheimer's disease (Adsersen et al 2006).…”

“…Aβ:Lavandula angustifolia is an aromatic herbal medicine having multiple effects. Antioxidative and anti-inflammatory characteristics are attributed to lavender(Marín, Sayas-Barberá, Viuda-Martos, Navarro, & Sendra, 2016;Silva et al, 2015) which, in turn, show similarities to the neuroprotective and neurotrophic properties of the herbal medicine(Parejo et al, 2002).…”
