Did you know Lavender can be used for way more than relaxation? Read on to get 10 amazing uses for Lavender essential oil | www.homemademommy.net

Lavender essential oil has been used for centuries, and was arguably the most famous of the essential oils long before using them became popular. People have been sneaking this calming oil into products (and foods) for decades, hoping to conjure up a restful night’s sleep and a more mellow mood in general.

I’m especially excited to talk about the uses for this particular oil, because there are so many that you wouldn’t expect. It’s not just for potpourri anymore, though I won’t stop you from adding it to that too!

10 Amazing Uses for Lavender Essential Oil

  1. Heal Chapped Lips

    Just rub one drop of Lavender essential oil over your dry lips, and the skin will be nourished completely.

  2. Tend to Irritated Skin

    Itchy skin can be relieved by rubbing a few drops of Lavender essential oil on the site of the irritation.

  3. Apply to cuts

    In a pinch, Lavender essential oil can be used to tend to minor cuts and scrapes. For this reason, it is a key ingredient in many natural shaving creams.

  4. Tend to sunburns

    Spritzing Lavender essential oil over a formed sunburn is a quick and easy way to relieve pain and support healing.

  5. Help Skin Imbalance

    Lavender essential oil, when mixed with a carrier oil, can help balance skin issues. If you don’t like working with straight oils, this homemade skin balancing cream utilizes Lavender essential oil along with the benefits of coconut oil.

  6. Tend to Mouth Sores

    If you apply Lavender essential oil to a mouth sore throughout the day (meaning adding more every time it comes off), the sore will be soothed naturally.

  7. Relieve Itchy Noses

    Dab one drop of Lavender essential oil in your nostrils and you will stop sneezing stat!

  8. Stop a nosebleed

    Here’s a quick way to stop a nosebleed: Drop one drop of Lavender essential oil on a tissue, and stick it to an ice cube. Carefully place the ice cube under the middle of your upper lip, all the way up to the base of your nose. Hold it there until the bleeding stops, and/or as long as comfortable.

  9. Eliminate Dandruff

    Massaging several drops of Lavender essential oil into the scalp will eliminate dandruff and promote scalp health.

  10. Calm yourself naturally

    The classic use for Lavender essential oil! Because really, who could ignore the calming powers of Lavender. It can even help you detoxify, and is what makes my Detox Bath Salts feel so luxurious.
