    Default Lavender, Linalool, anxiety and spasticity.

    https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle...=1781800&faf=1

    This article discusses lavender, whose chief component is linalool in sniffing form, can relieve anxiety due to the linalool, and it can increase GABA receptors. Itís worth asking your neuro about it. Itís the same mechanism as benzodiazepines but without the side effects and addictiveness.

    Linalool is a terpene in medical marijuana, from the cannibis plant. It is used to reduce spasticity.
