5 uses for Lavender Essential Oil

Hi there! Thanks for popping by today. I put some quick graphics together with 5 uses for Lavender essential oil.

I use this oil daily! It’s always inside some sort of roller bottle, spray or part of a diffuser blend.

Lavender (the Queen of oils!) – have you been uptight, had a hard time relaxing before bed, are the kids worked up? It’s gentle, soothing, cooling. Add to bath water to soak away stress or apply to the temples and the back of the neck. Add a few drops of Lavender to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet to relax and prepare for a restful night’s sleep. Lavender has been proven to lower your heart rate, cool your body temp down and lower your cortisol levels. So if you have a busy mind before bed, use a combination of lavender and a couple of other oils to calm your body down.
