Plant Research Term Project, Part 4: Scientific And Medical Evidence

Herbs and plants contain chemical compounds; some of them are effective at curing conditions, some are dangerous and others are a waste of effort and money. In this section you will be researching scientific and medical evidence including clinical trials for the efficacy of your chosen plant. Put some effort in here and find some good studies that either uphold or deny the various claims made for lavender. Make sure you include the chemical constituents and the chemical structures contained in the plant.

• Title Page including your name, date, chosen herb(lavender), and word count
