When I started studying more about essential oils I couldn’t see forward how much they could not only change your life, but also substitute some medications forever! I have some of my favorites, like Frankincense, peppermint, Ylang Ylang and so on, but definitely lavender is continuously surprising me with its versatility on the everyday situations at home, for healthy and beauty.
Today I selected some of these great benefits I tried myself and I could say lavender is simply amazing! ;) Here they are:
1. Calm down:
If you need to calm down, relax and reduce stress, lavender has this power to bring calm and relaxation. Being a perfect oil to use before going to bed for example or carry in your bag, so you can use in any situation that could stress you out during your day.
How to use: 1 to 2 drops on your wrists, neck and behind your ears. At night, you can use also on sole of your feet, using 1 teaspoon of coconut oil or olive to oil as carrier oil.
And you can use in a diffuser too.
2. To lower high blood pressure:
As it helps you to calm down, lavender essential oil also helps you to lower your high blood pressure.
How to use: 1 to 2 drops on your wrists, neck and behind your ears. You can also rub on your palms and smell it for 2 minutes.
3. Heals wounds and burns:
This one helped twice already. First, helped me with a burn I had on my hand that was brownish and with a dry texture and for that situation, it healed in one day!! And recently, I got burnt while I was cooking (again) on my 2 fingers and after putting my fingers in a cold water, I used lavender oil and wow! The pain was gone and I got my skin back and perfect again in 3 days!
I also cut my face (trying to get rid of a pimple lol) and it helped me healing in 4 days! Amazing!
How to use: 1 to 3 drops where you got hurt or burnt.
4. To reduce dandruff and scalp itchy:
This one was a big surprise. It not only helped me with that annoying thing, but also, let my hair beautiful, soft and more malleable! I can’t stop using it!
How to use: after washing your hair, distribute some drops on your scalp and where you have dandruff or where it is itchy and rub a little bit. Comb as usual.
