Everything Essential Oil
Posted on October 12 2018
Lavender’s benefits for health and wellness were one of the major reasons we were so drawn to this flower in the first place, and these benefits continue to amaze us every day. Lavender is definitely more than just a pretty purple bloom! Here are 10 easy ways to use lavender essential oil to make your life a little brighter.
Top 10 Uses for Lavender Essential Oils:
Lavender is a famous sleep aid. It not only helps us relax enough to fall asleep, but it also improves the quality of sleep we receive. Try adding a damp washcloth with a few drops of lavender oil to the dryer next time you dry your sheets or drop some oil on your pillow to boost the rest you get!
Calm your stress and anxiety
Diffuse lavender essential oil into the air to breathe in its fresh, calming effects. Lavender is known for its ability to decrease stress and anxiety, surround yourself with the aroma to reap these amazing benefits.
Is diffusing not for you? Are you looking for a way to elevate your current moisturizer? We have a great solution! Adding lavender essential oil to your lotion will offer the same calming benefits (lavender has been shown to have pore-tightening effects too!)
Lavender is naturally anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, so it is fantastic for handling the redness and problem-causing bacteria associated with acne. A bit of lavender oil applied via cotton swab to any spots can help the healing process!
If dandruff is a problem for you, you may be surprised to learn that lavender can help curb a flaky scalp. Try massaging a few drops through your hair, let sit for an hour then wash out and repeat weekly.
Now that we are getting into cooler weather, the common cold is almost inevitable. Do away with bothersome congestion by putting a few drops of lavender oil in your hands, rubbing them together, and breathing deeply.
Relieve Sore Muscles
Colds not only bring stuffy noses but also aching muscles. Luckily, lavender can help us there too! Adding lavender essential oil to a warm bath will not only help with congestion, but also soothe those sore muscles.
Pesky bug bites or scrapes bothering you? Lavender essential oil is a natural antiseptic and will help to heal small abrasions to the skin. Just rub a little lavender essential oil on the offending spot and feel the relief.
Those of us who suffer from headaches know how painful they can be. Studies have shown that inhaling lavender essential oil can be beneficial in reducing the pain associated with an aching head.
Did you know that lavender is naturally antibacterial? Lavender is known to kill common bacteria found around the house such as E. coli and Salmonella. We love incorporating lavender essential oil into our cleaning routine. This includes using our Terre Bleu sanitizing spray, made with our premium and all-natural lavender essential oil.
