Lavender essential oil, nicknamed the Swiss Army Knife of essential oils is a must have essential oil. It is universally regarded as one of the most powerful and versatile essential oils.
Known for its sweet, pleasing floral aroma, lavender essential oil has many benefits. It may assist in supporting the nervous, immune, endocrine (hormones) and integumentary (skin) systems.
It is highly versatile and has been used for perfumes, soaps, air fresheners and beauty products. Lavender can be added to water in a spray bottle to spray to banish stale odors and to freshen the air with a pleasing aroma. It can be diffused in the air at night time to help promote a healthy sleep cycle and has a calming aroma. You can also add lavender essential oil to Epsom salts for a relaxing bath before bedtime.
Lavender essential oil can also be applied to the skin.
When using essential oils, be sure to use 100% pure therapeutic-grade oils. Many oils contain synthetic and harmful ingredients.
