Here are 10 Amazing Uses for Lavender Essential Oil
1. Lavender essential oil is commonly called the “Swiss Army knife” of essential oils because it can be used for just about anything. I keep a bottle in my purse because I never know when I’m going to need it.
2. Add 2-3 drops to a diffuser to invoke a beautiful night’s rest.
3. Inhale deeply to help calm emotions or feel balanced. I let my children do this too!
4. Diffuse for a fresh, clean scent and to eliminate odors.
5. Add to a roller bottle along with Cedarwood and a carrier oil. Roll down you or your child’s spine each night for a restful sleep.
6. Add 10-20 drops to a shower gel, lotion or shampoo. It is always best to make your own! All natural and cost effective.
7. Apply 1-2 drops to the wrists or neck for a natural perfume.
8. Add a few drops to a bath to unwind after a long day…or add a few drops with some epsom salt and make a foot scrub!
9. Make a wonderful linen spray to freshen sheets.
10. Use to soothe insect bites, scrapes or cuts, or rashes.
Lavender essential oil is the most adulterated of all essential oils. You can find Lavender oil in pretty much any store these days. However, it is very important to know your source for therapeutic grade essential oils. Be sure to check for purity! That is why I chose and will always stick with Young Living essential oils. I know where they come from and what is in them…and not in them.
