With so many uses, it’s pleasant scent and affordability, lavender is one of the most popular essential oils. While there are many more, here are some of the top ways to use lavender essential oil.
Get Better SleepSleep is a very important part of everyone’s daily schedule, but far too many people suffer from insomnia. This could be from stress in your life, not planning for enough hours of sleep, or because you don’t allow yourself time to relax before bed. If you are looking for a natural alternative for getting a good nights rest, start by using some lavender essential oil. It has a calming effect and can promote a peaceful sleep. Diffuse some lavender in your bedroom before bed or add a couple of drops to a cotton ball or tissue near your pillowImprove Your MoodAnother wonderful benefit to lavender essential oil is improving your mood. Not only can it relax you and help with calming, but you can really just have a better mood overall. You can wear it like a perfume or with diffuser type jewelry, helping you to feel balanced throughout your day.Reduce StressIf you are dealing with a lot of stress in your life, then lavender essential oil might be the answer. Everyone has stress, but when you notice it is taking over your life, causing anxiety attacks, depression, or lack of sleep, it is time to do something about it. Try using lavender in your diffuser or diluting it and rubbing it on pressure points like behind your ears or on your wrists, and that could help take things down a notch.Soothe Your SkinLavender is not only good mentally, but physically as well. As an esthetician, I am a true believer in the power that this essential oil has in dealing with skin irritations, especially when paired with other oils that improve the appearance of the skin. It is one of the very few essential oils that most people can use neat (directly on the skin without using a carrier oil). You can calm your skin and your mind at the same time!
