The Wonderful World of Essential Oils!
Lavender Essential Oil:
Lavender is a warming and comforting essential oil. Usually regarded as the most versatile and useful essence for therapeutic purposes, it is mostly cultivated in France, although English lavender is available also!
Many describe lavender as a balanced oil on the yin-yang scale as it will treat many conditions of the body and mind. It is renowned for its use in headaches and migraines, nervous conditions, heart palpitations, inflammation, burns, eczema and many others. Lavender oil also benefits the “itis” conditions, such as cystitis, halitosis, bronchitis and others. Where there is an emotional or nervous problem, Lavender oil will be of assistance, such as in a nervous stomach, a carminative for the stomach, colic in infants, etc. Its antiseptic properties make it useful in treating skin infections, burns, insect bites, such as bee, wasp, mosquito, gnat, even nettle stings. Great also for ear, nose and throat infections. Although it is very useful in treating burns, it is not an effective sun screening agent.
Lavender is even more beneficial when combined with other oils for the purpose of enhancing their effectiveness. Example: use it together with Chamomile oil in a bath or foot bath to relieve physical and nervous fatigue. Or try lavender, vetiver and bergamot oils in a massage oil or lotion to calm, yet uplift mind and body. Beaulance NaturEssence Lotion provides this same blend to soothe and comfort mind & body!
Knowledge of Lavender’s properties, together with a little imagination will serve you well in creating your own custom blends!
