I love lavender. It has become one of my favorite herbs. It is beautiful, fragrant, and oh so helpful to the herbalist. It is iffy in growth in my area, and I never have enough blossoms for all the things I want to make with lavender so I purchase it dried in bulk.
Lavender essential oil is definitely essential to my still room. I find myself reaching frequently for the bottle of lavender essential oil.
I use it almost daily-
- in the diffuser to freshen the air
- for soothing a headache or stress
- to stop the itch of an insect bite
- in the bath
- in lotions and other diy bath and beauty concoctions
I carry a bottle in my bag whenever I leave home. You never know when lavender essential oil may be just the thing you need!The Herbal Academy has a very interesting article on their blog highlighting my most-used essential oil-
