Raise your hand if you could use some emotional support right now?!? 🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️ 

One essential oil I always turn to when I'm feeling stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed is Lavender. 

Lavender is a must-have essential oil for every home. From skincare products to relaxing routines, Lavender is a highly versatile oil that can enhance many areas of your life.

Here are 10 ways to use lavender essential oil to support your mind, body, and emotions: 

  1. Diffuse 4-6 drops to calm the mind and relieve occasional nervous tension. 

  2. Diffuse 3 drops Lavender + 3 drops of Cedarwood or Vetiver one hour before bed and while your sleeping to promote deep, restful sleep. If you don't have a diffuser, place 1 drop of Lavender on your pillow. 

  3. Dilute 1 drop of Lavender with 1 tsp of organic cold-pressed carrier oil (e.g., jojoba, olive, coconut oil) and apply it to the back of your neck anytime you're feeling stressed. 

  4. Create a Sleepytime Linen Spray by adding 24 drops of Lavender and 2 tablespoons of unscented witch hazel or vodka to a 4 oz (120 ml) glass spray bottle. Fill with distilled water. Shake before spritzing on pillows, sheets, or linens. 

  5. Create a "Relax" Roller by coming 15-30 drops of Lavender essential oil with a carrier oil in a 10 ml glass roll-on bottle. Apply to wrists, neck, or chest as needed.

  6. Use Lavender in your DIY facial oils. Here's a simple recipe: add 3 drops of Lavender and 3 drops of Frankincense to a clean and sterile 15 ml dropper bottle. Fill with an organic, cold-pressed carrier oil such as jojoba, rosehip, or sweet almond oil. Shake gently to combine. Apply to forehead, chin, neck, and anywhere fine lines and wrinkles may appear. 

  7. Add 1 drop to your favorite facial serum or moisturizer and apply to your neck and decolletage before bed.

  8. Inhale directly from the bottle anytime you're feeling stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed.

  9. Make relaxing bath salts by adding 5-7 drops of Lavender to 1 cup Epsom salt + 1 tablespoon carrier oil. Mix well to combine. Add 1/2 cup to a hot bath and soak for 20-30 minutes.  

  10. Diffuse 2-3 drops Lavender + 2-3 drops Lemon + 2-3 drops Peppermint to breathe easy during the spring and summer months. The aroma is divine and your house will smell amazing!
