7 Creative Ways To Harness The Power of Lavender Essential Oil In Your Everyday Life

Lavender essential oil is one of the most versatile (and popular) of all essential oils. Most commonly known for its relaxing effects on the body, therapeutic-grade lavender has been highly regarded for the skin. It may be used to cleanse cuts, bruises and skin irritations. The fragrance is calming, relaxing and balancing – physically and emotionally. Carrying a bottle of lavender around with you is like having your own personal first aid kit, perfume and pick-me-up. Ahhhh, that's why it's one of our favorites.

Here's 7 cool ways you can incorporate lavender in to your daily life (you'll thank us later) :)

1. Calming Affect

Rub just 2-3 drops of lavender oil in your cupped palms, then use the inhalation method to draw the scent in and calm the mind. Then, you can rub on the feet, temples, wrists (or anywhere) for an immediate calming effect on the body. Great for use in crowded areas like planes or subways to carve out your own personal oasis. YAY!

2. Sleep aid

You can use the cupping method to inhale the fragrance or you can use a handy aroma inhaler to inhale the lavender oil fragrance. Then, rub a drop of Lavender oil on your palms and smooth on your pillow to help you sleep.

3. Bug Bites & Stings

Put a drop of Lavender oil on a bee sting or insect bite to stop itching reduce swelling.

4. Minor burns

Put 2-3 drops Lavender oil on a minor burn to decrease pain. I recently did this after I spilled scorching hot tea on my hand at Starbucks and luckily had my lavender with me. Result: NO redness, swelling or pain. NO sign of any burn. Lavender works wonders!

5. Cuts & Scrapes

Drop Lavender oil on cut to stop bleeding, clean wound, and kill bacteria.

6. Dermatitis & Skin Issues

Mix several drops of Lavender oil with a nut or vegetable carrier oil (coconut, sweet almond, etc) and use topically on eczema and dermatitis. 

7. Nausea or motion sickness

To alleviate the symptoms of motion sickness, place a drop of Lavender oil on end of tongue, behind the ears or around the navel.
