Sleep: Lavender works amazingly well to relax and help induce sleep. Many with insomnia put lavender on their pillows to help with their sleep. Other ways to use the oil for sleep include inhalation and using a diffuser for the bedroom. Because lavender has such amazing abilities to improve sleep, it is sometimes imitated. Note that only a therapeutic essential oil will work for sleep.
Tension and Stress:One of the top lavender essential oil uses is for tension and stress. At Bella Reina Spa, the #1 asked for oils with an aromatherapy massage is lavender. Why? The aroma of lavender is calming. When it is inhaled, it actually can increase brain activity and reduce anxiety. Many studies have been conducted with stress and lavender as it impacts the nervous system to not only remove anxiety, but increases mental acuity.
Skin Irritations and Burns: The father of modern aromatherapy, Rene Gattefosse, learned first hand the lavender essential oil uses when he burned his hand. The burn healed after applying lavender and he went on the publish a book in the early 1900’s on the benefits of lavender oil. Burns and minor skin irritations respond well to the application of the oil as it soothes irritations, minor scrapes and burns. You will not want to apply to open wounds as it will burn.
Dermatitis, Eczema: Many common skin conditions like ringworm, dermatitis, and eczema will all benefit from the application of lavender. Mixed with a carrier oil like jojoba, lavender can provide relief from itching and the dryness.
