I decided to highlight Lavender today because it seems like it is an oil that I am constantly using. Many people call Lavender the "Swiss Army Knife" of oils because it really does have uses in so many ways. I will highlight just a few!
My oldest son sometimes struggles with allergies. Whenever he is starting to get itchy eyes or he starts sneezing, I hand him the bottle of Lavender and after a few inhalations, he is generally cleared of allergy symptoms. Lavender is also one of the oils used in the Allergy Bomb recipe. Our neighbor's 5 year old daughter got stung by a wasp recently and asked if I knew what to do. Lavender (along with Lemon and Peppermint) helped to clear the redness and the swelling almost immediately.
Our favorite and most frequent uses for Lavender are:
- bee stings
- Itchy eyes
