Lavender oil is one of the most used essential oils in the world today. It has many benefits, including improving sleep, alleviating headaches, reducing anxiety and it even helps to reduce sunburn. If you have spent the day in the sun and are a little too “sun-kissed”, lavender mixed with a carrier oil will be your best friend.
Some of the other benefits of lavender oil are:
Add lavender oil to a bath with Epsom salts to soothe and relax your body and mind
Place a few drops on your pillow to aid sleep
Add one-part lavender oil to three parts fractionated coconut oil and apply to chaffed skin
