Lavender is known as the “Swiss Army Knife” of oils. It does so much!
It’s my first go to for almost any skin aliment. When I first got my kit, I went around and added lavender to almost every bottle of lotion I had (even if it was already lavender scented!)
It’s also great for stress relief, calming and sleeping.
It’s part of the allergy trio!
It’s amazing on sunburns. (Young Living sells this spray called Lavaderm, it has lavender in it, it’s amazing!) I have extra bottles to make sure I don’t run out of it!
I’ve also used the Lavaderm for razor burn!
I’ve put a couple of drops in my eyelash primer and I’ve noticed that my lashes appear to be darker and fuller.
Love putting lavender in my Epsom Salts for a nice, relaxing bath before bed.
It’s the first oil I ran out of.
