DAY 03: Lavender Essential Oil

May 03, 2018


When you think of an essential oil which is the oil that usually comes to mind?

I will take a guess that one of the first oils you think of is Lavender, and for good reason, it is one of the most commonly used oils in the world!

Coincidently as I write this blog I am wearing a light purple coloured sweater and my smoothie is also purple (and yes there are a few drops of Lavender in my diffuser!) I have been reaching for my dōTERRA Lavender Essential Oil quite a bit lately as I have moved into a new place and as I adjust to a new bed and new noises Lavender has been supporting me to sleep.

Lavender is a natural:
  • Antibacterial
  • Antihistamine
  • Astringent
  • Antispasmodic
  • Digestive
  • Hypotensive
  • Regenerative

Lavender can support you in the following ways:
  • Aromatically add a few drops to your bath or pillow before bed. Dilute a few drops of Lavender into a spray bottle and spray your linen, mattress or the air
  • Topically Rub to the bottom of your feet before bed to promote a sense of calm and support a restful nights sleep (oil applied to your feet is absorbed by the body quicker than other spots . Add Lavender into your skin care regime to soothe skin, or rub to your temples to relax
  • Internally Use in your cooking to soften citrus flavours or add to desert recipes.

Express yourself.

Lavender Essential Oil is known to support verbal expression by calming the mental insecurities that can show up when you are sharing your inner truth. This gentle, yet potent oil can move you from hiding into being seen, and hold you to stand in the truth of who you are.

If you are looking to access a greater sense of emotional honesty and learn how to really communicate your inner most thoughts and feelings Lavender is the perfect companion oil to take that journey with.

Often Lavender Essential Oil is called upon when someone is experiencing feelings of fear of rejection, emotional dishonesty, communication blocks or feeling unseen or unloved. The positive shift that is possible with this oil is to access feelings of openness, courage, self awareness and a greater peace of mind.
