Anyone who explores natural skincare has found that many recipes include lavendar. Lavender is truly the ultimate triple threat; an amazing scent, color, and essential oil (I’ve even had lavender ice cream and lavender coffee syrup, which tastes delicious).

Why do I personally love lavendar essential oil? As someone who currently struggles with anxiety and stress, and has a history of insomnia, it is only natural (see my pun there) that I gravitate towards this special oil. It turns out however, that there are many more benefits than I initially thought. So let’s explore them!

Nausea Relief

Inhaling lavender has been shown to relieve nausea and calm the nervous system.

Eases Headaches

Placing a drop on your temples, as well as wrists have shown to alleviate intense symptoms of headaches.

Improve Sleep

Sprinkle a few drops on your pillow or use a diffuser in your bedroom to help fall asleep faster… and stay asleep longer.

Moisturize Skin

Add a few drops of lavender oil to your DIY skincare for moisturized and supple skin. One of our favorite DIY recipes is the Lavender Shea Lotion here.

Nourish Lips

Add a few drops to a mixture of Baraka Shea Butter and coconut oil to help alleviate chapped lips.

Treat Dandruff

Mix a few drops with olive oil and massage into scalp.

Alleviate Stress

Lavender is an extremely calming scent and it can calm the nervous system to reduce anxiety. Specifically it effects the amygdala gland (the emotional area) in your brain.

So now you can probably understand why I love lavender oil oh-so-much. It provides a range of benefits to your mind, body, and soul. Mix it into your favorite lotion, body wash, or chapstick DIY recipe, or sprinkle a few drops throughout your house for a clean and calming feel.

The possibilities are endless with lavender’s essential oil!
