This is the second installment of the Wellness Wednesday series! Last week, I shared with you my favorite essential oil and the reason I started with Young Living: Thieves – read about it here!
This week, I want to share with you one of the most versatile oils I have found – Lavender! Plus it is readily available and less expensive than most oils. It is great for relaxation, calming, soothing, sleep, stress relief, etc.
Here’s my favorite way to use it: as a simple linen spray!
- You will need: witch hazel, water, lavender essential oil, a small spray bottle
Lavender can be used topically – in lotions, lip balms, body wash, etc. Obviously, it can be diffused in your favorite diffuser. It can also be used in food preparation and recipes. I LOVE it dessert recipes like cookies, cupcakes and especially in breakfast treats like scones. Check out this recipe for Lemon Lavender Scones. Add just a couple of drops to the icing drizzle for extra flavor!One of my favorite uses for this oil is simple. Just a drop on our pillows before bed for a relaxing boost for a good night’s sleep. However, you choose to use it, I’d guess Lavender would be one of your favorite oils too! Click here to learn more about YL Lavender Oil.
