Do you ever feel anxious and want something that can instantly lift your mood and make you feel good? Or help you feel relaxed and ease your nerves? If yes, then lavender oil is what you're seeking.
The reason it is one of my favorite oils and even named my business after it is because it is one of the most versatile and popular oils because it has such numerous health benefits. It is used in aromatherapy to help common disorders like nausea, anxiety, eczema, insomnia, and more. So, let's learn more about lavender oil and how you can use it.
Perks of Purchasing Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender essential oil is one of the most commonly used oils as well as one of the safest! I always say, "When in doubt, use Lavender", because of its long list of properties. So let’s get straight into it!
1. You Can Use it as an Insect Repellent
It is one of the most used insect repellents. Also, the best part is that it can not only prevent the insects from attacking but also relieve the itching marks they leave after biting you.
2. You Can Use It to Improve your Sleep
Are you having trouble catching some ZZZs? If yes, then try lavender oil. It can help you fall asleep naturally. Moreover, you just need a few sniffs to hop back in bed and enjoy a deep sleep, which is worth every penny. Sleeping pills can be highly detrimental to your health, even melatonin supplements can affect your brain's ability to produce melatonin after long term use.
According to a study, it is highly beneficial for people that suffer from insomnia. If you sniff lavender twice a week for 20 minutes straight can help you soothe your nervous system and improve the quality of your sleep. My favorite thing to help me fall asleep is putting lavender and frankincense in the diffuser at night. Don't have a diffuser? You should get one! But in the mean time, you can ask us about our sleep spray next time you are in.
3. It Can Help You Get Relief from Anxiety
Anxiety is the most common form of depression. So, if you're looking for easy and natural relief from anxiety, then you should add lavender oil to your routine. According to a study conducted on a group of people, one group of participants used anxiety-suppressing medication. In contrast, the rest of the participants used oral intake of lavender oil.
Surprisingly, both had similar results and reduce anxiety by up to 45-46%. Even in extreme conditions, it never failed to deliver promising results.
4. It Helps to Control Hair loss
You can control and prevent hair loss by using lavender oil. All you need to do is apply it to the scalp before bed. It can help hair recover and enhance its thickness.
5. Get Your Glow with Lavender Oil
All of the above properties may help you fight stress and other forms of illness. However, do you know that lavender oil can help bring out your natural glow? Yes, lavender oil has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that can help you get clear skin within a few days of use.
You'll just need to add a few drops to your lotion or moisturizer and apply it before bed every day. We also suggest our Nourishing soap bar, which contains lavender, lemon and sandalwood. As a bonus, try Lu's Facial Toner with lavender, rose water, and other skin benefitting essential oils.
6. You can use it for Treating Cuts and Burns
Along with being an effective insect repellent, it is also best for treating cuts and burns. It has noticeable healing properties, which show quicker results than iodine, saline, etc. Just ask René-Maurice Gattefossé, the Father of Aromatherapy.
7. A Source of Natural SPF
Not only does lavender help relieve and heal burns but can also work preventatively in the case of sun exposure. Which is why we've included it as an ingredient in our Sun Butter. We recommend applying prior to going out in the sun, but if you forget or were out unexpectedly, you can later apply it for relief.
As you can see, lavender oil is greatly beneficial for your health, which is why we've included it in so many of our products and even our name. That being said, adding it to your routine can solve and prevent numerous problems. I highly recommend to always have a bottle on hand. Ours is grown and steam-distilled locally in Bucyrus, Kansas.
