Make Your Own Lavender Essential Oil
Making lavender essential oil is a fun and rewarding hobby. In addition, there are many health benefits tied to lavender essential oils, including helping to relieve stress and anxiety, nourish the skin, improve complexion, promote better sleep, clean cuts and bruises, prevent insomnia, aid in digestion, and more.
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 promotes mental well being, providing a calming effect for relaxation, pain and allergy relief and promotes better health.
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!
To Freshen Air
Is there an odor in your house? Essential lavender oil can beautify the smell of your home in no time. You can diffuse your extracted lavender oil, or simply add a few drops to a cotton ball and place in the area of the odor. Enjoy the fresh smell of essential lavender oil!
To Alleviate Pain
Do you have sore muscles or joints, or a bad headache? Lavender essential oil can help alleviate pains in our body. Lavender oil works by helping to lessen our pain — its pain-relieving properties are well known to help sooth anything, whether you have bruises, scrapes, minor burns, or an itch; so dilute it slightly and give lavender oil a try!
To Relieve Allergies
Do you have allergies? Lavender essential oil contains linalool, which has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to alleviate congestion. So if you would like to find a natural way to help soothe your allergies, essential lavender oil is a great choice. Simply apply around your sinuses. Now you can lessen your allergy symptoms and enjoy the great outdoors!
