One of the most basic and primary essential oils you should have on hand
is lavender oil. This magical oil has numerous amazing benefits and
will definitely come in handy if you have little ones to watch over.
The aroma from lavender oil is heavenly and is great to diffuse in your
home; you only need about 3-4 drops. You can also apply it to your
hands, wrists, chest, neck, and feet. Some people find it best to dilute 2-3
drops of the oil with 1-2 drops of water when applying directly to the skin.
You can also apply some to your hand, then cup both hands around your
mouth and breathe deeply. Inhalation of lavender essential oil can be
very therapeutic. One of my favorite ways to benefit from lavender oi
l is from tea. Pour a couple of drops into your tea or brew a lavender blend
for a wonderful relaxing treat. Using these methods of application, lavender
essential oil can:
1. Help You Sleep. Lavender oil has a soothing aroma that can ease ins
omnia and help you get an overall restful sleep at night.
2. Relieve Anxiety. Using lavender oil can have a calming and relaxing
effect that eases tension from stress, nervousness, and anxiety.
3. Ease Pain From Minor Burns. Putting a few drops of lavender oil on
a minor burn can help ease the pain from the burn, lower swelling, and
even help guard against blistering.
4. Moisturize Your Skin. Get relief from dry, chapped, sunburned, or eczema
skin problems with the smoothing and moisturizing effects of lavender oil.
5. Clean and disinfect minor cuts/wounds. Lavender oil helps to stop bleeding of
minor cuts and scrapes. It is also an anti-bacterial so it will clean and disinfect these
wounds as well. Apply 2-3 drops to the infected area.
