Amazing uses for Lavender

I'm so glad that you came back and are joining me for another week talking about essential oils. This week lavender is up!

Oh Lavender, how I love thee! You are one of the most versatile oils.  You are often called the swiss army knife of essential oils. There are a lot of uses for them. Here are some of the ways we've used them and some ways I'm looking forward to using Lavender.

1. Stops a runny nose. I rub a drop underneath the kids nose and it actually stops.

2. Freshen your laundry. I add a few drops to my homemade laundry soap.

3. Soothe a sunburn. Mix a few drop with some coconut oil and apply to burnt area. It will speed healing and prevent scars. Also great for burns. 

4. Relaxing foot soak. Take a bowl of warm water, 1C epsom salt, 10-15 drops of lavender and soak for 10-15 minutes. It will relax you and help you sleep better. 

5. Apply a few drops to a bug bite, it will reduce swelling and pain. 

6.  Cuts and scrapes. Clean the area and then few drops over the area and it will heal up quickly!

7. Can help clear up eczema. Lavender mixed with a carrier oil on the area. It helped clear up a patch on the back of Allyson's leg. 

8. Relief from ear aches. Use a warm compress, add a few drops of lavender to the warm wet compress and massage the areas around and behind the ears, sides of the neck under the jaw. This can help relieve and reduce inflammation around the tubes that drains the ears to the throat. 

9.  Soothe a sore throat. Inhale or rub a few drops around the nasal passage and massage into the neck and throat area. 

10. Dry, chapped lips? Mix 1/2 -1 teaspoon coconut oil with a drop of lavender and kiss those chapped lips good bye! 

11. Suffer from allergies?  You can take it in a capsule or diffuse lavender, peppermint and lemon for relief from allergies. It also smells sooo good too!!! 

This is just the start. There are lots of other ways to use lavender, I'm looking forward to adding it into a lavender lemon cake or lavender scones. Yummy! 

Totally one you need to have in your medicine cabinet right?
