Ever since I can remember I have loved using any product with the scent of lavender, whether it is lavender lotion, lavender powder, or lavender oil.
When I was little I would always be quite difficult to put to bed… Sorry mom and dad. My mom would always sprinkle lavender powder on my chest and would tell me it would help me go to sleep in no time. It was a smart move that always worked and tricked my worried little brain into relaxing. What was I possibly so worried about at the age of 7?
To this day, I still think of this as “magical sleep powder.”
Not only is lavender used as a calming agent and stress reliever, but also provides many additional benefits.
Lavender oil has multiple benefits for you. Whether it is for health or beauty reasons, this essential oil packs many useful tricks.
How to use Lavender Oil:
If you have chapped lips, rub on some lavender oil for quick relief. Your lips will be plump and moisturized in no time!
If you are suffering with dandruff, run a couple of drops of lavender oil along your scalp. It will quickly be hydrated.
Lavender oil can help relieve eczema and the swelling of skin. Basically, you can put lavender oil anywhere on your body and your skin will reap the benefits!
Cold sore? Put a drop of lavender on it and watch it diminish in size quickly.
Calm your stress levels by inhaling a drop of lavender oil placed in your palms. Then, inhale deeply and feel your mind begin to calm and your body relax.
If you have a cut, rub some oil on it to stop the bleeding, clean the cut, and the oil will kill bacteria.
Place a drop on your tongue to decrease motion sickness or nausea. This trick is great for me whenever I’m on a long car ride. I love road trips but motion sickness follows me, so lavender fixes the symptoms in no time!
