(Fun Fact: It takes 170-250 lbs. of lavender plant material to make just 1 lb of lavender oil.)I had a long day today and just got online at 9pm!! And guess what?? I want to RELAX!! So I put some lavender in my diffuser!! And I put it directly on me, or spray it in the air!! That's why it's call the Swiss Army Knife because it does it all!!
Burn yourself??? Yes LAVENDER is AMAAAAAZING for soothing burns!! After sun care with lavender is a must!! You can mix with coconut oil to make an after-sun rub!!
Cut yourself while cutting vegetables? I put a drop of lavender on the cut and it helps cleanse it and also helps it to stop bleeding faster.
Even great for kids, lavender most often does not need dilution, except for very sensitive skin. I usually diffuse the KidScents SleepyIze in my daughter's room at night ( lavender, geranium, roman chamomile, tangerine, bergamot, sacred frankincense, valerian, and rue)...but if I run out of that I just use straight lavender. She can put the SleepyIze oil on herself..I just add a roller to the top of the bottle.
It's also a key ingredient in the SleepEssence capsules that often go out of stock so people snatch them up as soon as they get released. They only let any account only order 2 per account per month they are in such high demand!!
