5 Unique Uses for Lavender Oil
Diffuse for a calming aroma.
It’s no secret that lavender smells incredible. Next time you want your home to smell fresh and calming, diffuse some lavender oil. (Learn more about our diffuser here.) Lavender also mixes well with lemon, bergamot, and even peppermint so try out some different combos to see which one is your favorite.
Try it out in your skincare.
Did you know lavender can be a great addition to your skincare routine? It can give the appearance of clear and toned skin. Try lavender oil as a facial toner by mixing two drops of lavender oil with one teaspoon of witch hazel.
Use for ultimate relaxation.
Try adding a couple of diluted drops of lavender to your next bath or diffuse it before bedtime to help you unwind and relax. You could also add a couple of drops to the outside of a sleep mask for a pleasant smell. Lavender is known for its calming benefits and it’s great to use in the evenings to prepare your body for sleep.
Add to homemade cleaners.
DIY non-toxic cleaners are becoming more and more popular and for good reason. DIY natural cleaners made with vinegar, rubbing alcohol or other natural ingredients are generally safer to use than traditional cleaners you can buy at the store.
Check out these simple cleaners you can make at home and try adding a few drops of lavender oil to them for a natural, uplifting scent!
Put in homemade soaps & scrubs.
Enjoy making your own soaps or body scrubs? Try adding a few drops of lavender next time for a calming boost and relaxing smell. Don’t overdo it, a little bit goes a long way when it comes to essential oils and lavender.
