Uses: Alleviates flu symptoms and relieves respiratory congestion.
Characteristics & Properties: Lavandula angustifolia is easy to grow, however the precious essential oil derived from this variety is difficult to extract. Considered the queen of essential oil, lavender is readily used either pure, diluted or combined with other oils for a wide variety of benefits and emotional effects.
Skincare – especially for sensitive, dry or acne prone skin. Headaches – rub a drop or two into the temples for tension or headache relief. Burns – the anti-inflammatory property soothes sunburn. Insect repellent/bites and stings – repels bugs and takes the sting away from bites. Also effective in calming the sting of a cooking oil splash (a quick fix for kitchen accidents). Congestion/Asthma – anti-spasmodic (muscular contraction) and anti-inflammatory effects make lavender good for respiratory support. Suitable for children too. Dandruff – balancing and moisturising dandruff treatment. Insomnia / nervous tension – relieves stress. User Guide / Precautions There are very few precautions with the use of lavender essential oil. The greatest concern is to make sure a high-quality essential oil is used in production.
