Lavender Essential Oil: Information, Uses & Ideas

For Skin

– For cuts and scrapes, apply lavender essential oil to sanitize and it might help stop the bleeding.
 
– Insect bites and stings: apply one drop of lavender essential oil directly on the bite or sting (can be applied with or without a carrier oil). This can help with the swelling, the itch and the discomfort.
 
Personal testimonial: The other day, my son got stung by a bee and the stinger was too deep for me to get out. I applied one drop of Thieves essential oil (click here to learn more about Thieves essential oil) and I literally watched the stinger get pushed out by the oil right in front of my eyes. Incredible! Lavender helped soothe the area where he got stung.
 
– For dry or chapped skin, rashes, sunburns, cold sores and similar skin issues, put about 2 oz of coconut oil (or any carrier oil like organic olive oil or avocado oil) and add 5-10 drops of lavender essential oil in. Mix well and apply on areas affected. Apply as often as needed.
 
– For sunburns, if it is too painful to rub coconut oil and lavender, you can also spray it on. Fill up a glass spray bottle with purified water and add 5-10 drops of lavender essential oil. Shake well and spray over burned skin.
 
– For burns, apply lavender essential oil with or without a carrier oil. Coconut oil may also help soothe the burned skin, so I would recommend using it with the carrier oil.
 
– For scars, apply lavender essential oil (with a carrier oil such as coconut oil) on the affected areas.
 
– For dry and flaky scalp, mix in 1 oz of coconut oil with about 5 drops of lavender essential oil. Apply all over scalp and massage. Let it sit for a few minutes. Rinse well and wash with shampoo or neutral soap until it is all out.

Other Uses
 
– For perfume and deodorant, fill up a glass spray bottle (8-16oz) with purified water and add 5-10 drops of lavender essential oil. Shake well and spray over armpits and all over yourself.
 
– For nosebleeds and clogged tear ducts, apply one drop of lavender on the bridge of the nose (be careful to not apply near the eyes). With nosebleeds, also apply ice around the nose area until the bleeding stops.
 
– For sinus inflammation or congestion, it may help to diffuse lavender essential oil or apply a drop on hand, rub hands together, place over face and inhale deep breaths, hold in as long as possible and exhale.
 
– To flavor water, add 1 drop to every 8-16 oz of pure water. Use a jar made out of glass, not plastic. Adding a few mint leaves will taste so good, too. You can also add one drop to lemonade. It tastes amazing!
 
– For laundry, you can either add a cotton ball with a drop or two of lavender essential oil to your dryer to make it smell nice, it may help repel moths and insects or you can put the cotton balls with lavender essential oil in your drawers and closets.
 
– For balance issues and motion sickness, use one drop (with carrier oil or not) around your temples, behind the ears, on the abdominal area and on the tip of your tongue.
