Did you know that their are 15 ways you can benefit from Lavender?

According to 15 Beauty Benefits of Lavender Oil That’ll Make You a Believer by Maya Allen those benefits of Lavender include:

  • Nervous System: Studies show the inhalation of lavender has a soothing and calming effect on the nervous system, making it a great alternative for alleviating stress, anxiety, depression, and fatigue.
  • Nausea: Studies have demonstrated that inhaling lavender scent can relieve feelings of nausea or motion sickness.
  • Headaches: Recent research says that inhaling lavender scent or massaging the oil into the temples, forehead, and neck (specifically behind your ears) can treat headaches.
  • Sleep: Adding a few drops of lavender oil to a diffuser next to you bed at night can help relax the mind and the body and improve your overall sleep.
  • Wounds: Applying a dilution of lavender oil and distilled water to a wound can help stimulate cell regeneration and heal the wound faster.
  • Menstrual Cramps: Applying lavender oil to the abdomen during your menstrual cycle can help alleviate cramping.
  • Skin Food: Lavender is packed with antioxidants that protect and nourish your skin, making it a perfect addition to any skincare formula.
  • Chapped Lips: I love mixing lavender oil with coconut oil for the perfect lip balm to relieve chapped lips.
  • Cold Sores: Lavender’s antimicrobial and antifungal properties make it an excellent choice to combat a cold sore.
  • Acne: Lavender is antimicrobial and antibacterial. so it can be used to treat an acne flare-up or keep it at bay.
  • Sunspots: Consistently using an oil with lavender in the formula can minimize the appearance of sunspots.
  • Itchy Skin: Lavender is an anti-inflammatory, so it can be used to relieve inflamed and itchy skin caused by eczema or insect bites.
  • Dandruff: I tell people to mix lavender with olive oil and massage it into the scalp to get rid of dandruff and other scalp imbalances.
  • Hair Growth: Lavender also stimulates blood circulation, so it can greatly improve hair growth when applied to the scalp in an olive oil mixture.
  • Fragrance: Lavender has a delightful floral yet clean scent, so using it as a fragrance is a great natural choice.
