Often described as nature’s medicine cabinet, Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is one of the most versatile essential oils – and probably the most used EO in the world. Gentle enough to use on children and with multiple benefits to offer the body and mind, you should always have a bottle of Lavender in your collection.
In ancient Rome and Egypt, Lavender was utilized in bathing, cooking, mummification, and relaxation as well as a perfume. Lavender is valued today because its clean, refreshing aroma can provide a sense of calmness and help you relax. It is often utilized for calming skin irritations as well as accelerating skin recovery and its ability to minimize scarring. These benefits make Lavender a must for the medicine cabinet and first aid kits.
Along with having numerous benefits, there are lots of ways to experience Lavender essential oil. It can be diffused through an ultrasonic aromatherapy diffuser to fill a room with a calming atmosphere. This is a great way to ensure a restful sleep all night long. Lavender can also be diluted with a carrier oil and applied topically to the skin to bring its restorative properties directly to affected areas. Added to a bath or a spray bottle, the refreshing aroma of this essential oil is ready to promote peace and tranquility with its clean scent.
Because of its versatility and effectiveness, Lavender is one of the oils we always suggest someone new to essential oils try first.
