Lavender - Pt. 1

Category: Essential Oils
Posted: 2008-03-27 21:32

Today is brought to you by . . .

LAVENDER - (Lavandula angustifolia) is the most versatile of all essential oils. Therapeutic-grade lavender is highly regarded for the good health of your skin. Also, lavender has been clinically evaluated for its relaxing effects. It may be used to cleanse cuts, bruises and skin irritations.

As a fragrance, it is calming, relaxing, and balancing - both physically and emotionally.

There is a reasonably long list of applications/uses. Here are a few to get you started!

* Rub Lavender oil on the feet for a calming effect on the body.

* Rub a drop of Lavender oil on your palms and smooth on your pillow to help you sleep.

* Put a drop of Lavender oil on a bee sting or insect bite to stop itching and reduce swelling.

* Put 2-3 drops of Lavender oil on a minor burn to decrease pain.

* Drop Lavender oil on a cut to stop the bleeding.

* Mix several drops of Lavender oil with Palma Christi castor oil and use topically on eczema and dermatitis.

* To alleviate the symptoms of motion sickness, place a drop of Lavender oil on the end of the tongue or around the naval or behind the ears.

I'm building the rest of the list, so come back to find out more!
