Benefits and uses
The intoxicating flowers of the Lavandula angustifolia plant create a sweet, floral, slightly fruity essential oil that is one of the more universally loved oils in aromatherapy, as it is so deeply calming and balancing to every aspect of the system encompassing body, mind, and spirit. Lavender essential oil is also useful for formulating blends to help purify, support pain and inflammation relief, and encourage skin healing. It is a sublime choice for promoting overall skin health and radiance. Lavender is also known to have insect repellent properties and makes a great addition to DIY, all-natural insect repellent products. Its soothing effects can even help with bug bites and stings.
Emotionally and energetically, lavender essential oil is so balancing, soothing, and nurturing, especially when working through situational fear, anxiety, and/or depression.
