Lavender Love: Natural Benefits of Lavender Oil

‘Let your body be your holy temple’- Lailah Gifty Akita

Essential oils play a key part in overall wellness, with benefits affecting our health mentally and physically. The use of lavender oil traces back 2500 years to the Mediterranean, Middle East and India, and with the longstanding use of botanicals as healing agents, it’s no wonder lavender remains a hero ingredient for health and wellness!

Lavender proves to be a versatile healing oil, with anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that make it a great ingredient for aiding treatment of acne and eczema.

One great way to incorporate Lavender into your routine is to treat yourself to a warm, detoxing salt bath with lavender oil as an ingredient. This then has the added benefits of gentle exfoliation and improved blood circulation. Using a lavender body scrub with a Body Brush can also further assist in deep exfoliation.

The benefits of lavender oil go beyond making your skin glow. Its calming properties can also be helpful in treating and relaxing tired muscles, while its floral aroma assists in aiding sleep and anxiety. Lavender oil works great when rubbed onto your temples before bed, or used as body oil when massaging for a full experience of relaxing muscles and relieving anxiety.
