10 Ways We Use Lavender Essential Oil

It’s been roughly a year since we began using essential oils.  We really love them and I am finally starting to share some of that love with all of you.  I am going to start a blog series where I will post about 10 ways to use a certain oil, starting by going through the oils in the Young Living premium starter kit.  First up – lavender oil.

What is lavender oil used for

 

1.  To calm.  One of the main uses for lavender oil I had heard was to help calm children down to sleep better.  While we prefer gentle baby for this, we always have lavender on hand.

 

2.  Soothe cuts.  This is now my favorite use for lavender.  I had cut my finger last week opening a toy package – we all know how much that plastic hurts!  A few days later, it was THROBBING.  I figured it was worth a shot and put on a drop of lavender.  Almost immediately, it was fine.  I was blown away.  While this is one of the most popular oils, we don’t use it all that often because it tends to make me feel itchy.

 

3.  Bug bites/stings.  A drop on a bug bite or bee sting can quickly calm the site of the bite and provide relief.

 

4.  Replace dryer sheets.  By using a few drops of lavender oil on wool dryer balls, your laundry can be static free and smell great.

 

5.  Help ease teething pain.  {Always dilute, dilute, dilute} Applying diluted lavender oil along the jawline can help ease teething discomfort.

 

6.  Help stop a nosebleed.  Using a drop or two of lavender oil on a tissue wrapped around an ice chip can help slow a nosebleed.

 

7.  Calming bath.  Applying lavender oil to your bathwater can provide a nice, calming bath time.

 

8.  Air freshener.  Fill a bottle of water with 8 drops of lavender oil and spray for an all natural air freshener.

 

9.  Bathroom air freshener.  By applying a few drops of lavender oil to the inside of a toilet paper tube, it will release a fresh lavender scent every time it is spun.

 

10.  Ease/eliminate headaches.  By applying some lavender oil to your temple, it can help ease or eliminate headaches.
