5 Incredible Benefits of Lavender Essential Oil

Basic Green Thickie Recipe

5 Incredible Benefits of Lavender Essential Oil (Blog Post)I am a huge essential oils fan.

I use essential oils for just about everything – I use them in my smoothies, I use them as medicine, I diffuse them in my home, and I like to boost my cleaning products with them as well.

The list is just endless.

Essential oils truly are nature’s gifts to us, and they come in little potent packages.

Have you started enjoying the benefits of essential oils on yourself?

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 oil 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 insomnia and help you get an overall restful sleep at night.

  1. Relieve Anxiety

Using lavender oil can have a calming and relaxing effect that eases tension from stress, nervousness, and anxiety.

  1. 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.

  1. Moisturize Your Skin

Get relief from dry, chapped, sunburned, or eczema skin problems with the smoothing and moisturizing effects of lavender oil.

  1. 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.
