Top 10 ways to use dōTERRA lavender essential oil

Lavender oil offers multiple benefits as well as smelling beautiful.  Here are a few uses you can try yourself.

  1. I think most of us are aware that lavender can help promote better sleep and is great for most sleep issues. Inhale, diffuse or rub on the bottoms of feet.
  2. Apply to the site of an insect bite or sting as it has natural antihistamine properties.
  3. Great to soothe and aid repair of cuts, wounds and blisters and helps reduce scarring.
  4. Feeling stressed or anxious? Then inhale the beautiful aroma from a drop of lavender essential oil from your cupped hands.
  5. Lavender can also be used for nosebleeds and pink eye when rubbed over the bridge of the nose. See cautions below.
  6. Migraines and headaches can be alleviated by inhaling lavender essential oil or by applying a drop to the temples and back of neck.
  7. If your baby is suffering from colic then massage diluted along the spine, over the abdomen or on the bottoms of the feet to help calm.
  8. A little on the pulse points and over the heart or in a capsule may help those with high blood pressure.
  9. Mixed with lemon and peppermint, lavender essential oil can help reduce allergy and hay fever symptoms when taken in a capsule or under the tongue. Alternatively rub lavender essential oil between the palms and inhale.
  10. Try lavender oil for fungal/yeast infections applied topically for its antifungal & antimicrobial capabilities
