How to Use Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender essential oil has been used since ancient times (in Rome to clean baths, and in Egypt during the mummification process), and to this day is widely popular. It is most frequently used in soaps, shampoos, lotions, potpourri, spa oils and air fresheners. Not only does it have a beautiful scent, essential lavender oil may promote mental well being and provide a calming effect for relaxation.
To Improve Sleep
Having troubles getting sleep at night? Try diffusing lavender essential oil in your bedroom for about thirty minutes before bedtime. In addition, you could add a few drops of lavender essential oil to a cotton ball and set near your pillow. Whichever way you choose, you will notice how the smell of lavender will encourage better sleep — and it smells wonderful!
