When used in aromatherapy, lavender essential oil is excellent for calming the nerves and relieving anxiety. It can also be helpful in treating migraines, headaches, depression, nervous tension and emotional stress. The refreshing aroma helps lessen nervous exhaustion and restlessness while also increasing mental clarity.
Lavender essential oil can be used directly on the skin without any carrier oil and is known to have antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-fungal, analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. Because of these properties, lavender is commonly used to treat acne, wrinkles, eczema, psoriasis, and other inflammatory skin conditions. It also helps to speed up the healing process of wounds, cuts, burns, and sunburns.
Lavender tones and firms your skin as it boosts circulation, increasing the blood flow to supply needed oxygen and nutrition to the skin cells. This helps to keep the cells healthy and aids their renewal process.
Lavender essential oil is known as an excellent remedy for various aches and pains including sore and tense muscles, sprains, joint pain and backache.
And if that isn’t enough, lavender essential oil is also an excellent insect repellent and can be used to soothe itchy insect bites and prevent them from leaving scars on your skin.
