Ah lavender! So sweet and calming. The blossom is so pretty and smells so nice!
If you haven’t noticed, I love essential oils, and I am trying to let you in on the awesomeness of them one oil at a time! You’re welcome! 🙂
Well today it’s the ever so gentle, yet effective, lavender!
Now I must say, I love the way lavender the flower smells! Not so much the oil! I know what your thinking “I thought you just said you loved the oils!” I do. I DO!! And I love lavendar oil, just not in love with the smell. I mean it’s not bad, it’s just not as sweet as the flower and if that’s what your expecting then you might be disappointed.
Other than that…lavender oil is AWESOME!
Because of the gentle properties of Lavender it can be applied topically on even some of the most sensitive of skin. Topical application to burns, minor cuts, and bruises almost always produces successful results. At the same time the aroma is very soothing. A benefit to applying the oil topically to a cut or burn on a child is to let them smell the aroma on the hands as it is applied and it will have a marvelous calming effect. By using a diffuser this same soothing aroma can help with stress or other mental strain with adults and children. Again, because of the versatility of Lavender oil, it can be used equally well topically, diffused, or in baths.
Here are just some of the medical issues it can help!
Colds and Flu
Cuts and Wounds
Pretty cool huh?!
Personally, I use it on my kid’s feet at night and this summer for a nasty sun burn!
Remember not all oils are created equal! Not even at the Health Food Stores! If you would like to learn more about lavender, or any other oil, contact me! I would love to talk with you!
