Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has a fresh, sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it. Lavender is an adaptogen, and therefore can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy. Therapeutic-grade lavender is highly regarded for skin and beauty.

It may be used to soothe and cleanse common cuts, bruises, and skin irritations. The French scientist René Gattefossé was among the first to discover these properties when he was severely burned in a laboratory explosion. Lavender may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods. Lavender has an approximate ORAC of 3,669 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole

Product Story

Traditionally used to treat burns, lavender is one of history’s most celebrated and versatile essential
oils. In ancient Greece, Pedanius Dioscorides, a physician, pharmacologist, and botanist, extolled
the medicinal qualities of lavender. Greeks also used lavender as a perfume. The Romans
used lavender in their baths for washing, for its healing and antiseptic qualities, and to deter
insects. The Egyptians used lavender as an ingredient in incense and perfume. Queen Elizabeth
I used lavender as a tea to treat her frequent migraines. Following a laboratory explosion that severely burned his arm, a French scientist named Rene Gattefosse was the first modern scientist to
document lavender’s ability to promote tissue regeneration. Today, we use lavender as a tea, to dress wounds, to induce sleep, ease depression, and reduce stress.

Prior to using Young Living Essential Oils I thought it was a bunch of "hog wash". I wasn't convinced that rubbing or sniffing some oil would do anything. Boy was I wrong!
I first used the Lavendar in my home office. Sometimes it gets hectic and stressful but I don't want to relax to the point of sleepiness. I simply sniff the Lavendar a few times while closing my eyes and breathing deep. Within a few minutes I feel the tension melting off of my shoulders.
At night time I rub a few drops on the bottom of my feet, ear lobs and temples. I haven't slept that soundly in a long time. When I wake up in the morning I am refreshed and ready to face the day.
Thanks for sharing your relaxation tips and oils with me Angela. I can't say enough about the effectiveness of these products.

When my son was an infant he had a lot of trouble going to sleep & staying there. He was a bit hyper. My grandmother had me put lavender oil in the rinse water for his linens and it worked great.

First time I heard of "essential oils" was in nursing school. It was mentioned but not really taught in details. Then I thought how can smelling some oils make you feel better? I dismissed it until I started working as a nurse and came home tired, unable to fully relax and go to sleep. I rub a few drops of lavender on the soles of my feet and my pillow and set three alarm clocks because It helps me sleep deeply. I wake up very recharged for the new day!

I have seen awesome things with Young living's Lavender oil personally and professionally.  My personal experience is I used to live on anti-histamines. If you had any dust, mold, or animals in your home I would only be able to spend 10 minutes in before turning red, sneezing and crying.   Today I own two cats, have a dusty house and have not needed any anti-histamines in over a decade.  
I used Young living's lavender and Peppermint everyday to decrease the histamines and open up my sinuses.  I inhaled them, and applied them to my neck and temples.  I did this for a year or two when I was around allergens.  Then I started not even needing them.  I believe not only did they help me with the symptoms but they cleaned up the problem.

These oils are the BEST! I absolutely love the lavender. The scent is wonderful and very comforting and relaxing. I place a little on my pillow at night to help ease my breathing and relax me into sleep.

Today, I had hot tea (just out of the kettle just 3 minutes prior) spill all over my hand and forearm. I ran upstairs and read again the info sheet on lavender to verify that it could be used on burns. Meanwhile my hand/arm was BURNING! I put the lavender on it and the redness disappeared and it did not blister or anything! Looking at my arm just a couple hours later, you would never know anything had happened!

 I've been so grateful for Lavender and PanAway! My kids have had to use them sometimes when they've been home alone. It's so great to get the phone call, "Mom, i burned my hand making bread, but i already put lavender on it and it doesn't hurt anymore"…

Yes they are nice to have and I love hearing the kids ask “where is the oil bag”
