Lavender has been used since ancient times for its floral fragrance and calming properties. In fact, the Egyptians and Romans used it extensively in perfumery, mummification, aromatherapy, air purification, cooking, and bathing. In fact, the name Lavender is derived from the Latin word "lavaré" which means to wash or bathe.
Today, this essential oil is no less valuable. Perhaps the most popular essential oil for sleep and relaxation, make sure to have Lavender on hand before bedtime for a more restful sleep. Try dabbing a drop or two on your temples, bottoms of feet, temples, neck, or wrists. You can also add a few drops on your pillow or the collar of your pyjamas. If you're really feeling indulgent, you can run a hot bath and add 6 - 8 drops of Lavender essential oil!
Outside of the bedroom, take advantage of Lavender's relaxing aroma whenever and wherever. Use it as an all-natural closet, car, or air freshener. Lavender is also soothing to the skin so dilute with a carrier oil and use in lieu of hand cream. Also, why not make your cooking and baking more perfume-y with the addition of Lavender essential oil?
