Essential oils are such a valuable tool in staying healthy and well. Lavender is one of the most common and popular essential oils in aromatherapy. Lavender oil is especially useful during this busy holiday season because it is a stress reliever that calms the mind and body. It is anti-inflammatory, anti fungal, antidepressant, antiseptic, and antibacterial.
Add a few drops to an Epsom salt bath or shower to relieve aching muscles and stress. Use it with a carrier oil and massage onto skin for burns, acne, wounds, and muscle and joint pain. Lavender oil can also be used for all natural cleaning products. Mix with baking soda to make an anti-bacterial scrub for your bathroom or kitchen.
Use lavender oil with any of the ideas above or just add some drops to an oil diffuser and enjoy a calming floral scent. Wishing you stress free happy holidays!
