Lavender for Skin Irritation

Put three drops of Lavender essential oil in a teaspoon of coconut oil for topical use on skin irritations. Conversely, you can put these three drops in a 10 ml roller bottle and then fill it up with fractionated coconut oil, olive oil, or other carrier oil. Apply as needed to the irritated skin area.

Lavender Blend for Sleep

Diffuse 2 drops of Lavender and 2 drops of Cedarwood in 100ml of water for 15 – 30 minutes prior to bedtime to help aid in sleep.

Lavender Blend for General Wellbeing

In a 4 oz spray bottle, put 20 drops of Lavender in 3 oz of distilled water and 1 oz of witch hazel. Shake before each use. Spray makes a great pillow scent, room spray, or linen spray. The darker the bottle and the cooler the mixture is kept, the longer shelf life the spray will have.

Lavender Diffuser Aroma Blend

A great go-to blend is 2 drops Lavender, 2 drops Frankincense and 2 drops Lemon in 100 ml of water. Diffuse up to 30 minutes and have two hour breaks between diffusing for a great lingering scent in the home or office.

Lavender Blend for Bee Stings

Place one drop directly on the bee sting with one drop of olive oil or other carrier oil. Lavender reduces redness, irritation and the itchiness of the bite.
