Lavender (lavendula officinalis) is a Miracle herb with many uses. A little goes along way and the benefits are endless. Here are a few of the most common uses……
Inhaled: Mix Lavender and Vetiver oil together to improve ADD/ADHD. Use as a room diffuser or mist in areas like a home office or study room. Lavender oil, when inhaled has a calming effect on grief, sorrow, insomnia, hangovers, mood swings and allergy inflammation. Waft a bottle under the nose of someone who has fainted or experiencing vertigo. Hold bottle directly under the nose avoid touching the skin.
Skin: Lavender oil is great for acne, earaches, allergies, bug bites, cuts, blisters, boils and burns, shingles, herpes, psoriasis, eczema and pain when applied topically. In most cases on a drop or two applied directly to the skin is needed. Lavender oil is well known for its soothing properties and powerful, regenerative abilities like reducing fine lines, stretch marks and scars. Lavender oil is also great as a deodorant and any rash, especially diaper rash, it’s a safe alternative to steroid and petro creams. Apply with swab to soothe and protect skin against irritation and infection. Always use carrier oil, if treating an area larger than a quarter.
Supplement: Lavender oil, when taken orally, can help boost your estrogen level, but make sure it is Food Grade oil. Also, be aware that Lavender oil can decrease your progesterone levels if you are already deficient (always check with your doctor before taking any supplement). Lavender oil or tea can help with nausea, anxiety. Remember, not all Lavender oil is the same. Make sure it is therapeutic or food grade before treating any ailments listed above.
I only recommend using the highest quality, therapeutic or food grade Lavender oil/plant you can find. Here’s the oil I use https://www.lorannoils.com/c-183-essential-oils.aspx and the plant lavendula angustifolia is harvested before the individual flowers open. Remember, not all Lavender is the same, but all pesticide-free organic Lavender is edible.
