How to Use Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender is a wonderful, gentle oil. You can diffuse it at bedtime to create a relaxing atmosphere, use it for headache relief (or cramps!), add it to a soothing skin cream, or even spritz it around the house before leaving to help calm your dog. As you can see, there are plenty of lavender essential oil benefits!

One common phrase I hear - "If in doubt, use lavender" because of its many uses. It's a versatile oil - it's gentle with a beautiful, restful fragrance. If you want to blend it with other oils for more personalized uses - it works very well with many oils, especially citrus oils.

Here are just a few more lavender essential oil uses:

  • Use a drop on a bug bite or bee sting to soothe the itch
  • Apply to a burn for instant relief
  • Rub on scalp to eliminate dandruff
  • Add to homemade cleaner recipes for its anti-bacterial properties
