Lavender Benefits, Uses, and Recipes

Lavender Benefits, Uses, and Recipes | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it
There are many ways to apply lavender essential oil. Some of the most commonly used methods include:

• Bath: Adding a few drops of lavender oil to your bathwater can help you to experience the therapeutic benefits throughout your body almost instantly.

• Massage: You can apply diluted lavender essential oil directly to your skin and massage it to help feel relaxed. You can use it on fungal infections as well to help speed up the healing process. Diluting it with a carrier oil is important because it has a very strong aroma, and an undiluted application can possibly sting your skin.

• Diffuser: You can use a diffuser to help treat any respiratory conditions you might have. This method can help you feel relaxed and may help you breathe easier.

• Soak: You can soak your hands and feet in a warm bowl of water mixed with lavender oil after a tiring day at school or work.

• Compress: Adding lavender oil to a towel compress can help treat sprains and muscle injuries better than a normal compress.

Things to Remember Before Using Lavender Essential Oil

Before using lavender essential oil, or any essential oil for that matter, it's always important to do a skin test first to check for any allergic reaction. To perform the test, apply one drop of pure lavender essential oil to your arm and see if the skin becomes irritated. If the nothing happens, then you're free to proceed with using the oil (make sure it's diluted when you do so). Should any irritation occur, stop using the oil immediately and contact your doctor if the irritation doesn't subside.
