Lavender Essential Oil is so underrated.
Lavender Essential Oil is most commonly known for its calming aroma and its ability to promote relaxation and a night of restful sleep. However, Lavender Essential Oil has so many other beneficial properties that you can take advantage of in your daily life and in your home.
Lavender Essential Oil acts as a pain reliever. Lavender is great for treating headaches, migraines, muscular pain, inflammation and nerve pain. Whenever I am mixing up a headache blend to roll across my forehead Lavender and Peppermint are my go-to, and I find that on most occasions I am provided with quick relief. Lavender Essential Oil is also perfect to use during "that time of the month" as it can assist in easing menstrual cramps and relaxing the lower abdominal area. Applying just a little bit of Lavender Oil in a rollerball with some carrier oil to your lower tummy area can provide you with some relief, allowing you to continue on with your day.
Lavender Essential Oil is a must-have for the first aid kit. Lavender Essential Oil keeps sores, wounds, and cuts clean which makes it great for reducing the risk of infection. The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory of Lavender Essential Oil also make it a wonderful oil for treating infections that may arise. During these times, Lavender Oil can be used neat on a small area of the skin. This means that you don't need to blend the Lavender Oil with a carrier oil before applying to the skin.
Heals and Soothes the Skin
Lavender Essential Oil is effective and useful in treating cuts, burns, sunburn, stings, and bites. The healing effects of Lavender can also reduce scarring, acne, and eczema. It is also during these times that Lavender Essential Oil can be used neat on the skin. It was only the other day that I had a suspicious bite causing me to itch and scratch. I applied a little bit of Lavender Oil onto the skin and within minutes the itching had stopped and the bite reduced significantly.
Further, adding Lavender Essential Oil to creams, oils, and baths can create a softening and soothing effect on the skin. Using this oil in your skin care can also be beneficial as the antimicrobial properties of Lavender Oil can help treat the infections that cause boils and pimples.
Freshens the Air
Lavender Essential Oil is ideal for deodorising the air and making it smell fresh. Adding some Lavender Oil to a room spray can have wonderful antiseptic effects.
Promotes Calm and Relaxation
Lavender Essential Oil is a popular choice for promoting a restful sleep. The scent of Lavender encourages calmness due to its sedating nature. Further, Lavender Oil can also assist in reducing stress and anxiety.
Lavender Essential Oil is non-toxic and non-irritating which means that it is considered safe to use during pregnancy, on the skin, and on young children.
