Lavender is perhaps the most well-known of the essential oils and for good reason. Lavender essential oil is renowned for its many beneficial properties, including promoting calm, relaxation, and being a nervous tension reliever. It can also be added to a carrier oil to help reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles and help soothe alterations in skin integrity, such as during sun exposure or a minor cooking burn. It can be used in cleaning or as an antiseptic for cuts. Lavender is a wonderful "all rounder" oil.
Diffuse Lavender about 30-60 minutes before bedtime to promote relaxation before sleep.
Cautions: None known.
Ingestion: The International Federation of Aromatherapists does not recommend that Essential Oils be taken internally unless under the supervision of a Medical Doctor who is also qualified in clinical Aromatherapy.
