Lavender essential oil

Hi!! Back to the blog after a lot of time.

This days we're renewing the home's furniture and there's a lot of work to do,so I have had no time to write.
Btw today I'd like to talk about the amazing properties of Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)! This post is dedicated to all the Bath and Beauty producers and to everybody likes to know something interesting about this faboulous plant.

Lavender essential oil has soothing, calming, and restorative properties. The essential oil is antiseptic, cooling and mild. Considered the universal oil, lavender is readily used neat, or undiluted, and combines well with almost all other oils for a wide variety of benefits. Many aromatherapists say lavender is the first essential oil to get.
Lavender Essential Oil Physical Benefits and Effects:
Skin care – especially dry or acne prone skin
Headaches – rub a drop or two on the temples for tension migraine relief.
Burns – The cooling, soothing and skin restorative effects are good for anti-inflammatory sunburn care. Documented use as an emergency care for heatstroke until medical personnel can arrive.
Insect Repellent/Bites and Stings – Repel bugs and takes the sting away from bites.
Blood Pressure and Heart – Soothes heart palpitations and lowers blood pressure because of anti-stress properties
Congestion/Asthma – Anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory effects make lavender good for respiratory support. Suitable for use with children as well.
Dandruff – Stimulating and moisturizing effects help with hair shine and dry scalp.
Lavender Mental/Psyche Effects:
Anti-Stress – Calming and soothing effects help counteract stress hormones
Antidepressant – Lavender is a well-documented antidepressant essential oil.
Refreshing and Uplifting – Can help balance mood swings and PMS symptoms
Insomnia – A mild sedative effect for restless or anxious nights
**A word of caution. Those with sensitive skin cannot always tolerate direct application of lavender oil to the skin. If that is the case for you, you can dilute the oil with a carrier oil such as almond oil or jojoba oil. European made essential oils are the best for now unless you know the source that you are getting the oil from is organically grown. Europe has standards for the production of essential oils, the United States does not. Because of the extreme concentration of essential oils, they should always be organically grown. As always, be wise and use your own best judgement!
