Lavender Oil


http://smithfamilyresources.com/products/lavenderoil
 
 
Lavender just may be the most useful essential oil of all and definitely one to consider adding to your aromatherapy collection!
 
Lavender is a great massage oil!  Lavender's anti-inflammatory properties help to relax and relieve sore, tense muscles.  Massage several drops of lavender oil into your feet. You can also mix a few drops of lavender with almond oil for an overall body massage.  Even babies benefit from a lavender oil massage!
 
For a soothing soak, combine 4-5 drops of lavender oil with a tablespoon of olive or coconut oil and add to a warm bath.
 
 Suffering from insomnia?  A couple of drops of lavender oil on your pillow will often bring on a restful sleep. You might also use lavender oil in a diffuser beside your bed.
 
Lavender also has anti-fungal properties. Apply a few drops to toenail fungus or athlete's foot once or twice daily.  Within days, the lavender begins to break down the cell wall of the fungus and prevents new growth. If the skin becomes dry from this treatment, add a few drops of almond oil to moisturize.

Lavender promotes quick regeneration of skin cells, so burns and wounds heal more rapidly when treated with lavender oil.

For regular use, even when you have no physical or emotional complaints, use lavender oil as a perfume by dabbing it on your pulse points. This is far preferable to synthetic fragrances which can soak in and harm your body.

 Beeyoutiful's pure lavender essential oil is steam-distilled from the lavender plant.  Although it is considered safe to use internally as well as undiluted on skin and in bath water, it's always best to test for skin allergy or sensitivity first.  Apply a drop diluted with a bit of olive or almond oil to the inside of your elbow.  If there is no reaction after 10 minutes, you are probably not hypersensitive to lavender.
 
Start enjoying the benefits of lavender today!

A minor cut or scrape or a burn?
Do you have a little one with a skinned knee?
 
Did you say yes to any of these questions?
Then, you need a miracle!
 
Well, actually, you need Miracle Skin Salve!
