How to Use Young Living Lavender Essential Oil

Every Friday you can look forward to posts on recipes with essential oils, diffusing combinations, and information on individual oils.  I’m going to start with the oils in the Premium Starter Kit because that is the way that most people start their essential oils journey, and I want to give you the tools you need to know what to do with the oils you purchase.  Haven’t purchased your starter kit yet? I’d love to be the person who helps you learn all about essential oils and their great applications, just click here to get started.

This week we are going to learn all about Young Living Lavender essential oil, which is a great oil to start with because it is so versatile.  So much so that it’s known as the Swiss army knife of oils.  Lavender is recognized for its fresh, floral, calm scent.

Young Living’s Lavender is actually the very first essential oil that I ever diffused!  It immediately took me back to the year I walked in a dear friend of mine’s wedding as a bridesmaid.  She gave out little bags of dried lavender flowers at the wedding reception and I loved the smell of it so much that I kept it in my closet for a while and then moved it to hang from the rearview mirror of my car.  Every time I’d get into my car, it would smell soooo wonderful from the lavender flowers.  Eventually, I did get rid of it because it didn’t smell anymore, but if I had it now that I have oils,  I would simply add a few drops of Lavender oil to the bag to refresh it and continue to enjoy the scent even longer!  Now I just diffuse Lavender oil or rub a drop or two on my wrists or neck to experience the relaxing scent.   I also love to diffuse it for bedtime, mixed with cedarwood.

Here are a few ways to use Young Living’s Lavender essential oil:

*Add a few drops of lavender to your favorite beauty products (shampoo, moisturizers, lotions, etc.).
*Add 5 drops of lavender essential oil to 1 cup of Epsom salts and then add the mixture to a hot bath to relax before bed.
*Make a pillow spray by adding a few drops of lavender essential oil to a spray bottle of water, then mix.
*Lavender essential oil supports healthy skin.
*Diffuse lavender with lemon and peppermint for a great seasonal support blend. (2-3 drops each)
*Use lavender to soothe skin after spending time in the sun, or touching a hot pan.
*Make a lavender sachet to add to your dresser drawers or to hang in your closet: Add a few drops of lavender essential oil to a few cotton balls and put them in a sachet bag (or you could use dried lavender flowers like my friend did to make it pretty!!).
*Add a few drops of lavender to dryer balls to add a fresh scent to your laundry.

These are just a few ways to use this amazing, calming oil, but there are so many more! If you’ve tried Young Living’s lavender essential oil, add your favorite ways to use it in the comments below.
