I hope you all have taken the time to go buy some Lavender essential oil, because today we are going to talk about how to use it. I have two categories of uses: health and home.
This is how I use Lavender in my family to keep us healthy. It can be used many other ways, these are just my favorites.
- Preventative health:
Lavender is also an anti-viral/anti-bacterial oil - meaning it will kill germs and viruses that are in your body. Put a drop or two on the inside of your wrists and rub them together - inhale deeply. The combination of absorption through skin and inhalation will make the oil more effective - it works really well with colds, because the particles go straight through your nose to your lungs - where most colds are - and then into your bloodstream.
I also take lavender baths- if you have a sunburn this is a really good idea. Last summer, I had very bad sun poisoning and I took a lavender bath in the evening. In the morning, the sun poisoning was pretty much gone - I am not making this up - it is amazing stuff!! I love it. Use 10-15 drops for your bath, and I usually dilute it in milk so that it will dissolve and not float on top- oil does not mix with water.
This is the way I use lavender around my home.
- Laundry detergent:
- Linen spray:
- Air freshener/germ killer
So those are my favorite ways to use lavender essential oil. If you have any questions, email me here. Have a lovely day
