Lavender essential oil is undoubtedly one of the most popular essential oils, and most studied, and usually, it is the most familiar scent that many can identify. Most commonly found to be used in spas, lavender essential oils are now readily available for use in homes, workspaces, and more. Did you know that lavender can be used in various forms? You can choose to diffuse and inhale it, apply it topically to your skin, or even take it orally.
Lavender is most commonly known for its relaxing properties, which is why you’ll find the delicate floral, herbal and almost woodsy blended scent wafting through spas when you go for massages. It is known to calm the body and mind and aids in one’s overall well-being.
Diffusing lavender essential oils in your space can help promote better sleep, especially if you are suffering from insomnia or any sleep issues. Did you know that a study that was done showed that inhaling lavender before sleeping can help increase the percentage of your deep sleep timeframe? This is also why lavender is one of our key ingredients in our Relaxation and Bedtime blend and rubs!
Lavender oil can also do wonders in calming your anxiety and stress! Unlike some medications that may have sedative effects for individuals suffering from anxiety, lavender has been proven to offer an almost similar effect, without the harmful side effects. It may also be used by individuals who suffer from mild to moderate depression as it has an antidepressant effect. This is because lavender is known to affect the parasympathetic nervous system, which controls the bodily processes that are often associated with anxiety and stress, such as breathing, heart rate and adrenaline levels.
However, as we always caution our customers, if you do suffer from any of these conditions, please consult a doctor before using essential oils as a treatment.
Aside from its calming effects, lavender oil can also be used to aid in the healing of your skin. If you suffer from acne issues, a few drops of lavender oil can be mixed with a small amount of witch hazel and you can dab it onto your face. Its ability to kill bacteria can aid in the prevention of acne breakouts, and it is extremely useful in unclogging your pores and reducing any inflammation on your skin.
For those suffering from eczema and psoriasis, the lavender essential oil can also be helpful in reducing redness and irritation. How come? Well, lavender oil possesses antifungal properties, which will help to alleviate those suffering from these skin conditions. But never apply the oil directly to your skin, especially on open lesions – always, always mix it with a carrier oil or cream, which does not diminish the potency of your essential oil. In addition, with its relaxing properties, patients suffering from these skin conditions may find some comfort in the regular usage of lavender essential oil.
The lavender essential oil also has antioxidant properties, and can be used to prevent and reduce wrinkles, evening skin tone and manage hyperpigmentation issues, reduce blotchy skin and more. In fact, it can also be used to aid wound healing as it promotes the healing of skin tissues.
