More Than Just Chill: The Surprising Benefits of Lavender Oil

When you think of lavender essential oil, relaxation is probably the first thing that comes to mind. This floral favorite is commonly used for its soothing, calming aroma that helps ease anxiety, stress and insomnia.

BUT lavender is so much more than a one-trick pony! This versatile oil has been used for centuries in herbal medicine and natural remedies for an array of concerns. From skincare to haircare to household uses, lavender oil is an affordable multi-tasker you'll want to have on hand.

Beauty Benefits of Lavender Oil
While the sweet, floral fragrance of lavender makes it a staple in perfumes and body products, the benefits go beyond the aroma. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, lavender oil can:

• Treat acne, eczema and other skin conditions
• Speed healing of burns, cuts and wounds
• Relieve muscle aches and joint pain
• Help prevent scarring
• Balance oily or dry skin
• Promote restful sleep when used in a diffuser

Lavender is also excellent for haircare. It can help treat a dry, itchy scalp, combat hair loss, and even eliminate lice! Add a few drops to your shampoo, conditioner or make a hot oil treatment.

Household and First-Aid Uses
With its antiseptic and antibacterial properties, lavender oil lends itself well to household cleaners and even first-aid. You can use it to:

• Make an all-purpose cleaning spray (recipe below)
• Repel mosquitos and other insects from the home
• Disinfect minor cuts and wounds
• Soothe insect bites or stings
• Add to laundry for an aromatic boost

Safe for Kids and Pets
If you have kids or pets, breathe easy knowing lavender essential oil is generally regarded as safe for both when used properly. You can use it to soothe diaper rash, cuts or skin irritations in children or calm anxious pets by adding to a diffuser.

As you can see, there's so much more to lavender than meets the eye! This staple oil deserves a spot in every household. Grab a bottle and let me know all the creative ways you use it!
