Lavender Essential Oils
Lavender is one of the most versatile and widely used essential oils. Adored for its beauty and prized aromatic quality, the aroma is fresh, sweet, soft, and floral. Its soothing, balancing, antibacterial, and antiseptic properties make it an essential aid for life's little emergencies - a must-have product for every home. Lavender will enliven you when you are short of energy, and will settle you down when you are 'wound up'.
Put a few drops on your pillow for a restful night, or dilute in a massage oil for a soothing muscle rub or skin support. It is a valuable support for the respiratory, and muscular systems, is great for skin care and supports the nervous system relieving stress and strain - and is gentle enough to use with children. Its uses are endless and it blends with so many oils. Try with any of the following, depending on the desired effect: camomile, helichrysum, bergamot, eucalyptus, sweet marjoram.
