How to Essential: Lavender

Lavender is one of the most popular and most well known essential oils. It is known for its calming benefits and assistance in sleep. I love to use lavender to soothe my skin and to relax after a long day. I like to pair it as well with citrus oils to get a calming influence on both my mind and my body; plus, it smells amazing!


One of my favorite, unusual uses of Lavender is lavender lemonade. It sounds weird at first, but it is absolutely delicious! Try making a batch today and you will know what I am talking about.

Lavender has been used and cherished for centuries for its unmistakable aroma and myriad benefits. In ancient times, the Egyptians and Romans used Lavender for bathing, relaxation, cooking, and as a perfume. Its calming and relaxing qualities, when taken internally, continue to be Lavender’s most notable attributes. Applied topically, Lavender is frequently used to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections. Add to bath water to soak away stress or apply to the temples and the back of the neck. Add a few drops of Lavender to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet to relax and prepare for a restful night’s sleep. Due to Lavender’s versatile properties, it is considered the must-have oil to have on hand at all times.
