Lavender: used to relieve stress
Her love was like lavender, delicate, calming and antibacterial!
Lavender oil is naturally antibacterial, meaning that it kills acne-causing bacteria that might infiltrate your pores. This makes the purple flower perfect for preventing, calming, and healing painful acne breakouts. Acne often flares up when your skin does not have enough oil. Dry skin can start to overproduce sebum (your skin’s natural oil) to compensate, leading to clogged pores and acne formation. Lavender oil gently moisturizes skin, and is non-comedogenic for pores.
Lavender Essential oil has a soothing and calming effect on the nerves and skin. When massaged into the scalp, it can improve blood circulation, promote hair growth and prevent hair loss. The use of lavender oil for hair helps moisturise the scalp and balances the production of oil in the scalp.
It is an anti-inflammatory Star – assistances in managing stress and reducing anxiety. Not surprisingly, it offers the same calming benefits for your skin. It helps reduce redness, blotchy patches, and acne scarring. Lavender oil’s anti-inflammatory properties make it great for soothing and healing skin that’s irritated or reddened from the sun, burns, insect bites, or bacteria.
It can relieve muscular and joint pain (especially caused by sports injuries), improve blood circulation and is beneficial for respiratory problems.
Essential oils can be used topically (combined with carrier oils and moisturizers) and externally (i.e. around the home).
1) Add 5-7 drops to a diffuser filled with water.
2) Like above, but instead, use reed diffusers in a container of carrier oil with 3-5 drops of essential oil.
3) For massage: Dilute 15 drops in 50 ml of your favorite carrier oil (e.g., argon, olive, coconut and almond oils) for face and body.
