Lavender Essential Oil

I've been falling behind on my oil posts....kind of like I have been falling behind on all my posts these days!

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:

  • allergies
  • burns
  • bruises
  • bee stings
  • Itchy eyes
