Day 2: Lavender Essential Oil

Welcome to Day 2 in our Getting to know your New Premium Starter Kit Challenge.

Today we are highlighting one of my favorite essential oils, Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia).

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has a sweet, floral aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Lavender’s aroma is great for relaxing and winding down before bedtime; add to bath or diffuse to create a calming and comforting environment. Lavender essential oil may compliment your favorite shampoos, lotions and skin care products. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it.

In addition to the above, here are a few more ways I use lavender essential oil everyday.

1. Hand, face & body cream: Add a few drops to your favorite brand of lotion, or make your own cream using 1/2 cup Cold Pressed Organic, Coconut Oil, 1/8tsp Argon Oil, and 5-7 drops of Lavender. A little goes a LONG way, so keep that in mind when using Coconut Oil as a carrier base with any oil.

Tip: Oil removes oil. If you ever get essential oils in your eyes, use grapeseed or coconut oil to wash out).

2. Homemade Laundry Soap.

My first batch was finally getting low, so I just re-made it with around 1mo to spare. So I was right on with my 10-12mo estimate, even with two growing boys in the house!
