9 uses for Lavender Essential Oil


(Lavandula angustifolia)

topical aromatic

One of the most versatile of Young Living’s Essential Oil arsenal and a “must-have” for any household serious about getting started with essential oils.   Lavender is like a Swiss Army Knife in a bottle. Young Living Lavender Oil is wonderful to soothe the skin.  Consider this blurb from Young living’s site:

Lavender is an adaptogen, and therefore can assist the body when adapting to … imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy. Therapeutic-grade lavender is highly regarded for skin and beauty. It may be used to soothe…skin.

All that and it smells great too!  Who doesn’t enjoy the wonderfully aromatic scent of lavender.   This powerhouse of an essential oil is a must have for any household.
