Some Benefits of Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender is probably my favorite essential oil. It really is such a relaxing scent and it can be used to help so many things!

 

Here are just a few things that lavender is good for:

  • headache and migraine relief
  • healing burns and insect bites
  • acne, psoriasis and other inflammations
  • stiff joints and sore muscle relief
  • relaxation
  • insomnia
  • hypertension
  • repelling mosquitoes

Lavender is one of only two essential oils that can be used on the skin without dilution (the other being tea tree oil)!

Use sparingly though. 

Examples:

  • A few drops to combine with a lotion or shampoo.
  • Just a drop or two to apply to any inflammation.

 

*Allergies – People with allergies should test an oil on a small area of sensitive skin (inside of arm).

*Pregnant – Check with your doctor before using any essential oils (Lavender usually does not appear on the AVOID DURING PREGNANCY list).

**Discontinue use at the first sign of any irritation!
