You’ll almost certainly need no introduction to the wonderfully sweet, floral and herbaceous aroma of pure Lavender Essential Oil. Perhaps the most well-known of the essential oils and for good reason, Lavender Oil is renowned for its vast therapeutic properties, and is a prized ingredient in everything from cosmetic and skin care products to aromatherapy applications.
Lavender Oil is well valued for its relaxing, calming, soothing and sedative properties, and its ability to help relieve stress, anxiety, irritability and nervous tension. It’s also thought to reduce pain, enhance blood circulation and treat respiratory problems. Plus it’s identified as safe to use on children, adults and the elderly.
In skincare, Lavender Oil has a reputation for its antiseptic, cleansing and detoxifying properties, along with being an excellent agent for dry, sensitive and irritated skin. It’s said that Lavender Oil is one of the most beneficial oils in the treatment of acne, as well as other skin complaints such as eczema, psoriasis, scarring and wrinkles. Also, did you know it’s been shown to be effective for treating hair loss?
Try adding a few drops (2-5%) to a carrier oil to help reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles, diffusing 30-60 minutes before bedtime to promote calm and relaxation, or adding to a base massage oil to assist with sore muscles and joints.
It’s clear that no home should be without this versatile essential oil!
