Lavender is the most versatile of essential oils. It is relaxing and refreshing, uplifts the spirits, and helps to relieve the distress of muscle pain. No home should be without it.

Lavender essential oil balances your body and mind, calming or uplifting according to your body's needs. Excellent for refreshing tired muscles, feet and head. Add a drop to the pillow/sheet before peaceful sleep. Helpful for burns and for reducing scarring. Can be used neat in small amounts on burns, but care still needs to be taken.

Learn about Lavender Essential Oil:

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is now cultivated all over the world, including France, Russia, Bulgaria, the Himalayas and Croatia. Lavender is the most popular and widely used essential oil and for good reason: not only is it remarkably gentle and effective, but it has an almost universally beloved aroma - floral, soft, and herbaceous. This is one of the essential oils that everyone should have on hand.

History of Lavender Essential Oil:  Lavender oil has a long history of use; the name coming from the latin word 'lavere', which means 'to wash', because the Romans added Lavender to their bath water. It is the essential oil made famous by Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who treated a bad burn with lavender oil. He was intrigued that the burn healed without the usual blistering or scarring, and became interested in the healing power of essential oils. His studies led to the publication of the book Aromatherapie, and also popularized the term Aromatherapy for the study of essential oils.

So, what makes Lavender essential oil so useful?   For starters, here are just a few of its properties: Analgesic, anticonvulsive, antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antirheumatic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, antitussive, antivenomus, carminative, decongestant, deodorant, diuretic, insecticide, nervine, parasiticide, sedative, stimulant, tonic.

Common Uses for Lavender Essential Oil:  Lavender essential oil is used to help relieve headaches, PMS, cramps and muscular aches and pains. It can help relieve sinus and nasal stuffiness and chest congestion. Probably most well known for its ability to reduce stress, relieve anxiety and insomnia, Lavender oil is the number one choice for many when they need calming, grounding and rest. In fact, aromatherapy researchers found, when testing several different oils, that lavender oil was the most effective at relaxing brainwaves and decreasing stress.

Lavender Essential Oil is also extremely useful in the treatment of burns, including sunburn, insect bites, and inflammatory skin conditions. Many use it to ward off insects, and as an ingredient in cleaning and getting rid of odors in their home. It is one of the few essential oils that can be applied neat (for instance, in case of a minor burn), although care still needs to be taken.
