Studies show the inhalation of lavender has a soothing and calming effect on the nervous system, making it a great alternative for alleviating stress, anxiety, depression, and fatigue.

Inhaling lavender scent can also relieve feelings of nausea or motion sickness.

Recent research says that inhaling lavender scent or massaging the oil into the temples, forehead, and neck (specifically behind your ears) can treat headaches. 

Lavender Oil For Sleep: 

Adding a few drops of lavender oil to a diffuser next to you bed at night can help relax the mind and the body and improve your overall sleep.

Applying a dilution of lavender oil and distilled water to a wound can help stimulate cell regeneration and heal the wound faster. Menstrual Cramps: Applying lavender oil to the abdomen during your menstrual cycle can help alleviate cramping. 

Lavender Oil For Skin: 

Lavender is packed with antioxidants that protect and nourish your skin, making it a perfect addition to any skincare formula. Chapped Lips: I love mixing lavender oil with coconut oil for the perfect lip balm to relieve chapped lips. 

Lavender Oil For Cold Sores:

Lavender's antimicrobial and antifungal properties make it an excellent choice to combat a cold sore. Acne: Lavender is antimicrobial and antibacterial. so it can be used to treat an acne flare-up or keep it at bay.

Lavender is an anti-inflammatory, so it can be used to relieve inflamed and itchy skin caused by eczema or insect bites.

I tell people to mix lavender with olive oil and massage it into the scalp to get rid of dandruff and other scalp imbalances. 

Lavender Oil For Hair Growth: 

Lavender also stimulates blood circulation, so it can greatly improve hair growth when applied to the scalp in an olive oil mixture or mixed with your favorite shampoo.

Lavender Oil For Fragrance: 

Lavender has a delightful floral yet clean scent, so using it as a fragrance is a great natural choice. 

PLEASE NOTE: Some internet sources may tell you that lavender oil in your mascara promotes lash growth with strengthening, volumizing, and lengthening lashes - this is not true! "Do not use undiluted lavender oil near your eye. There is no evidence to back up these claims. Even diluted, it is not encouraged.
