Product description

Lavender is one of the most popular and versatile essential oils.  Lavender is a powerhouse of healing properties and is great for reducing stress, relieving pain, improving blood circulation, repelling insects, providing relaxation, disinfecting wounds and much more.

Used for centuries, as early as ancient Egypt for mummification, and for cleansing baths during the Roman civilization, lavender oil is just as popular today as it was over 2000+ years ago.

Extracted from the fragrant flowers of the lavender plant, using the process of steam distillation, lavender oil is used in everything from soaps, shampoos, and lotions to potpourri, massage oils, and air fresheners.

Dosing of Lavender

There are so many great ways to use lavender oil... below is only a small example.

Diffuse in the air: To support brain health and promote overall nervous system well being, simply diffuse lavender oil in your surroundings to reap the medicinal benefits of the oil.

Apply topically: Mix a few drops of lavender oil with a carrier oil such as grapeseed oil or jojoba oil and rub onto your temples, front and back of the neck, wrists and behind the ears. Also, rub some into the soles of your feet for fastest absorption in the bloodstream for full body relaxation and restful sleep.

Soothing warm bath: A warm bath with lavender could just be what you need to completely and fully relax. Adding a cup of Epsom salts and a few drops of lavender oil in a warm bath can help the body detoxify, improve circulation and set the mood for a full night of snooze.

Side Effects Lavender

For most people, lavender oil is completely safe; however, there has not been an extensive amount of scientific research done on lavender oil interactions with other medications, or for its use in pregnant women, so there are certain situations where you will want to use caution.

  • Medication Interactions: If you are already taking any prescription medication for sleep-related disorders or for depression, be cautious as lavender can increase the effectiveness of these medications. Even if you use an over-the-counter sleep aid or any type of sedatives (even cough or flu medicine), lavender may make you sleepy and/or drowsy. If you are planning on undergoing anesthesia in the near future, you will also want to avoid using lavender oil.
  • Pregnant Women: Lavender oil is generally considered safe for women who are pregnant and nursing. Because it can have a relaxing effect on muscles and can also affect hormone levels, use lavender with caution in your third trimester. It’s best to speak with your doctor about the use of any essential oils when pregnant.
  • Children: Lavender oil is considered generally safe for children to use, although there is some concern that lavender’s effect on hormone levels could be harmful to boys who have not yet gone through puberty; please use caution if using lavender oil frequently on young children.
  • Ingesting Lavender Oil: Studies have primarily looked at the effects of using lavender oil topically on the skin or through inhalation. There have been no negative symptoms found when three drops of oil are mixed with a carrier oil and applied directly to the skin. Lavender can also be ingested at a large dose of 80 to 160 milligrams without adverse effects, except for minor gastrointestinal symptoms. To avoid gastrointestinal irritation, keep internal use to a minimum and be careful if you have a sensitive digestive system.
