LAVENDER (Lavandula angustifolia)

Lavender is the Swiss army knife of essential oils. It cleanses, calms, and promotes mental focus and skin wellness. Its aroma is relaxing and balancing both physically and emotionally. Lavender protects and renews and can enhance many areas of your life. I love to diffuse lavender because it creates a calming, comforting atmosphere. Because it is so good for the skin, we use it at home to cleanse and soothe minor skin irritations. At bedtime I like to apply it over my heart and around my ears for quality sleep.
