Friend or Follow me! Jenn Abadie Scioneaux for more great post!
Lavender Oil is one of the three oils I always have on hand. Peppermint and Tea Tree are the other two.
Add a few drops of oil to your potpourri, dry or silk flowers (NOT on wood furniture!!)
For aching muscles or stress relief, add 4 drops of oil to your bath. You can also add a handful of Epsom salts.
Sit back, relax and soak away your tensions!!
3- Cuts/ Scrapes
Spray on lightly some Lavender oil on the affected area. It’s a great disinfectant that will not “kill” the “good bacteria”
on the skin!!
Add 5-8 drops of oil in a hot foot bath to soak your feet (which are particularly porous, so it reaches your bloodstream
quickly, soothing various systems of your body!!)
A few drops or a light “squirt” on your pillow case for a sweet sleep! (I’ve personally done this too, by adding a little
pouch of lavender “buds” inside my pillow case…works great!!) For babies, add 3 drops of lavender oil in their bedtime
To sterilize household surfaces, add 10 drops of lavender oil to a small squirt bottle (can be found at the Dollar Store).
Spray on surface, wait 30 minutes. Not necessary to wipe off. (NOTE: NOT to be used on wood furniture or wood surfaces to
be safe!) You can use it to disinfect toilets, sink handles, telephone receivers, light switches, etc…
After cooling the burn under cold, running water for approx. 5-10 mins (or more), gently apply oil to affected area.
This should help lessen the pain immediately.
Massage a few drops of lavender oil into your forehead, your temples, nape of neck, and the inside of your wrists.
Apply 1 drop of oil on the affected area (pimple) inhibits the bacteria that causes the infection & helps re balance the
over secretion of sebum.
10- Insect Bites
Applying 1 drop of lavender oil on an insect bite will soothe itching and inflammation. Dab on as soon as possible.
Hang little fabric bags or pouches (can be found at the Dollar Store, if you cannot find a substitute at home) amongst
your woolens in your closet, and refresh with oil from time to time. It’s a deterrent, but not a guarantee!
T.V.’s Dr Oz says that lavender oil (3 drops), when rubbed into the finger or toe nail (several times a day) has anti-fungal properties! (Re-apply after washing your hands or bathing)
NOTE: Store your oil AWAY from heat & light to preserve its properties.
