10 Ways to Use Lavender Oil

As one of the most versatile essential oils, lavender oil has numerous uses that help the mind and the body. Here are ten of the most popular ways you can use lavender oil to benefit you.

1.       Cool and Calm

Calm the mind, sooth the senses, and fight fatigue. Add a few drops to a diffuser and breathe in. The scent of the lavender will produce a calming effect that will relieve stress. Ideal for breaks at work or when children are asleep.


2.       Sleep Aid
Sleep better than ever before by using lavender oil before you hit the sheets. Rub a little on your pillow or add to a diffuser to induce sleepiness. It even helps get babies to sleep – ideal for newborns that wake up in the middle of the night and refuse to fall back sleep.


3.       Insect Bites

Hiking, gardening, or simply spending time outside can leave you with an insect bite or a bee sting. Lavender oil can reduce swelling or stop itching from insects, all you need to do is add a few drops to the affected area to have peace of mind and body.

4.       Aromatherapy
