75 Ways to Use Lavender Essential Oil


lavenderocover

A few years back, I decided I wanted to try out a few essential oils. I had heard so much about them and I wanted to know what all the hype was about! We have a close family friend who has a huge, beautiful lavender farm. She makes beautiful products and her lavender is incredible! (Check her out at The Lavender Apple!) In a conversation about essential oils one day she told me, “If you are going to have one oil on hand all the time it should be lavender. It has endless uses!”

And seriously, it has a million uses! I always have lavender on hand and love it for so many reasons! I recently tried out a new brand, Avenir Oils. It came quickly in the mail and I was super excited to try it out! It smelled a little more sweet, rather than floral, which threw me off a bit. But it smelled delicious, felt great when I used it on my skin and the dropper bottle worked great! It is 100% pure, natural and therapeutic grade. And it seemed to work just as great as any oil I have used before.
