Botanical name: Lavandula angustifolia
A calming, soothing antiseptic that has one of the prettiest aromas among the essential oils which we use. Ours is from Bulgaria, and leaves a sweet trace in its scent when a drop or two is exposed to the air.
- For a calming bedtime massage for babies and children, dilute 1 drop of lavender essential oil in 2 teaspoons of carrier oil. Warm this mixture in the palms of your hands and gently massage it into their skin on their backs, limbs and/or feet. Toddlers may wriggle away from you, but I find that my older children appreciate their massages much more! Enjoy this precious bonding time together--they won't stay small for long.
- To soothe inflamed or acne-prone skin, add 1 drop of lavender essential oil into a bowl of warm water and gently swish a face towel in it. Wring out the water from the towel and press it onto your face until it cools, then repeat 3-4 more times. Breathe in the vapours too, because it's great for calming raw nerves. Finish your mini facial by splashing your skin with cool water. Follow up with a moisturiser if necessary.
How to use
How to use
Use in an appropriate essential oil diffuser. Depending on the oil, it may damage some kinds of plastics, so we generally prefer using clay diffusers with tea lights.
Certain essential oils are also lovely as room sprays, insect repellents and linen fresheners.
Some essential oils are toxic to pets. Please read up about them as much as you can before using it around your furbabies.
We do not advocate the ingestion of any essential oils, unless under the direction of a doctor or certified clinical aromatherapist.
Be sure to dilute essential oils if you are looking to apply them to the skin, as most essential oils can irritate the skin when used at full strength.
