If I absolutely HAD to choose only one essential oil for my desert island, it probably would be Lavender. The name lavender comes from the Latin root lavare, which means “to wash.”
Lavender has such a wide range of uses, it is sometimes called the Swiss Army Knife of essential oils. It is definitely one that I would never be without in my own first-aid kit.
The following is a list of just a few ways I personally use Lavender essential oil for my own family. I hope this list will give you an idea of how benefical this oil can be, and give it a try!
- Relief from a burn
- Rubbed on my temples for a headache
- Calming for an anxious child (and their mommy)
- Sleep aid
- A few drops in the bath to aid in relaxation
- On irritated skin from a diaper rash
- In a capsule to relieve seasonal allergies
- Massaged on an ankle to reduce swelling and inflammation
- Around (never in) the eye for pink eye
- On an insect bite, to help take the sting out
- And check out this recent study about the amazing healing powers of lavender essential oil.
