Lavender Essential Oil is one of my absolute favorite single essential oil. Lavender has a sweet, floral aroma that is soothing and refreshing. The aroma of Lavender is great for relaxing and unwinding before bedtime, adding to a warm back or diffuse to create a calming and comforting atmosphere.
Lavender is steam-distilled from the Lavandula angustifolia, a perennial, busy shrub with a flowery top. The many plant constituents in lavender essential oil contribute to a vast range of usages and the oil can be applied to the skin undiluted or *neat*.
I diffuse Lavender Essential Oil throughout the day in our home. It just helps to create a calm atmosphere for us and our pets. I also make a Sweet Dreams Linen Spray using my Lavender Essential Oil.
For a simple relaxing bath soak:
1 Cup Epsom Salts
4-6 drops Lavender Essential Oil
Mix well in a glass mason jar or glass bowl and add to a warm bath.
There are so many ways to incorporate the calming aroma into your daily routine! I challenge you to do your own research to learn all the great wellness benefits Lavender has to offer!
