Copy of 15 Uses for Lavender Essential Oil


  • Take A Lavender Bath. Drop a bit of lavender essential oil along with Epsom salts to your bath water for an ultra-relaxing experience.

  • Head To Toe Rest! After a hard work out or a long day on your feet, rub Lavender along with Lemongrass (dilute with a carrier oil such as sweet almond oil or fractionated coconut oil) on your legs and feet. It will help soothe sore muscles and fully rest.

  • Take The Acid Out Of Vinegar. Add 4-5 drops of Lavender to your vinegar cleaning mixture for a more bearable scent. (see this link on how to make your own all purpose cleaner)

  • Quick Fix. Mix three parts Fractionated Coconut Oil with one part Lavender essential oil in a small spray bottle or roll on to help clear up skin irritation associated with chafing.  Great for little ones!

  • Bring on the ZZZ’s. Rub on the bottoms of the feet for a more restful sleep.

  • Enjoy A Fresh And Clean Mattress. Sprinkle a mixture of baking soda and lavender essential oil over your mattress. Click here to learn how to do this!

  • Ouch! That’s Hot! Apply lavender oil to the affected area to soothe skin burns/irritation, relieve redness and ease swelling.

  • The Oatmeal Secret.  Fill a baby food jar with oatmeal, and add 5-8 drops of Lavender oil.  When it’s time to wash your face, add water and it becomes an excellent natural scrub! A little goes a long way.

  • A Sleepy Time Trick. A few drops of Lavender placed on a pillow will help a restless toddler (or adult) fall asleep and stay asleep.

  • Flavor Twist. Lavender adds a unique and delicious flavor to marinades, custards, breads, cookies, icings, and even honey and syrup. (Make sure your oil is approved for ingestion)

  • Homemade Aftershave. Use after shaving to soothe and soften skin and to lessen the redness and burning caused by razor burn.

  • Take The “Ouch” Out. One drop of Lavender will help relieve the pain and sensitivity of occasional sore gums, dry or chapped lips, occasional scrapes and abrasions, or after too much sun.

  • Clear The Mind. Apply Lavender to the temples and back of neck to lessen the effects of stress and anxiety and to promote mental clarity.

  • Care For Your Baby Belly. Rub Lavender essential oil onto an itchy tummy while pregnant or dilute with a carrier oil to reduce stretch marks through pregnancy.

  • Therapeutic Dish & Laundry Soap. If your liquid soap smells a bit flat, you can add Lavender for additional aromatherapy benefits. It transforms your cleaning experience!
