Emotional benefits Lavender can offer

Lavender is a very calming oil. Promotes a peaceful feeling. Can help reduce stress and anxiety.

The oil of communication. It encourages emotional honesty allowing unconditional love & acceptance. Aids verbal expression of thoughts & feelings.

Ways that I have used Lavender oil in the last few months

๐Ÿ’Ÿ My daughter got a bee sting, we used Lavender oil to help reduce swelling on her toe. I also quickly whipped up her first roller ball of Lavender & fractionated coconut oil – this served as a distraction at the time & she loved to roll her own oil on her sting. She did also roll on her arm etc so this helped to create a calm feeling.

๐Ÿ’Ÿ I pop a drop with a little handful of Epsom salts in the kids bath each night. Can just do the drop alone as we do when we are out of salts.

๐Ÿ’Ÿ We use it in the diffuser in the bedroom often.

๐Ÿ’Ÿ I have a blend of Lavender, peppermint & lemon oils w coconut oil. This supports my seasonal allergies & lessens my sneeze per day rate.

๐Ÿ’Ÿ I have almond oil with Lavender & frankincense I use this daily on my face & dรฉcolletage for its beautifying properties ๐Ÿ˜‰
Lavender is s
il. I didn’t think I used as much as I do but looking at the nearly empty bottle is testament to its use.

1. Lavender sheets – spraying a water / Lavender mix on my sheets. Either on the bed, if I want to go all hotel spraying & ironing ๐Ÿ˜ณ, maybe I’ll spray just as about to pick them in off the line.

2. Lavender Latte – it’s a thing I’ve seen it on the internet it must be real. Doterra Lavender oil is safe to take internally, use topically & aromatically.

3. Make shower melts with Lavender oil

4. Diffuse w
haven’t tried it with citrus yet. Lavender is calming & the citrus oils are uplifting so it could promote a calming good mood.
