With the end of the year, the season has started to change. It’s getting colder and lazier. Now, what are we doing today? Today, we are going to talk about the uses of lavender essential oil. Well,
essential oils have been revolutionary products in our daily lives. They have done great things to us. There are a number of essential oils but today we are going to talk about the uses of lavender essential oil. Recently I have found the Speaking Tree Essential Oil which has become an integral part of my life. But, first let’s see what an essential oil is.

Essential Oils: Wikipedia says “An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Let me ease up this a bit. An essential oil is basically oil extracted from the plants. It’s called an essential oil because it has the signature essence of the plant from which it is extracted. Lavender Essential Oil has the pleasant fragrance of Lavender.

Lavender Essential Oils: Lavender Essential Oil is extracted from spikes of certain species of the flower through distillation. There’s a lot of chemistry that goes into the making and that’s super long. So, I’m going to skip the whole chemistry lecture now. Let’s see some of the uses of Lavender oil:

1. Fragrance: The fragrance of Lavender Essential oil is so pleasant. It’s used in a lot of perfumes and creams. You can even use it as a room freshener by mixing two drops of the oil with water and adding it to a diffuser.

2. Skincare: Lavender Essential Oil is one of the best essential oil for skincare. If you want to use just one product for your skin then just use this. It helps in detoxification, curing acnes, treats eczema. Use it as a toner or just as it is.

3. Haircare: It also comes in handy as an awesome haircare product. It controls hair-loss, treats dandruffs and also treats hair lice. It can be also used as a good conditioner.

4. Insomnia: If you are like me who just cannot sleep and is insomniac to an extent that you are thinking of becoming a night guard then try the lavender essential oil. Trust me, it works. This is coming from an ex-insomniac who started spraying lavender essential oils on the pillows and around the room. Just mix some drops with water and spray. You’ll get a sound sleep.

5. Helps Treating Anxiety and Depression: If you are going through a dark phase in life and is suffering from depression then I would highly suggest get help. Don’t fight it alone. But, here’s a little trick that would help you feel better. Rub some drops of oil onto your palm and inhale it. It would calm you. It will also help you treat if you have anxiety issues just like me.

6. Cures Headaches: We all are familiar with headaches. We get them every now and often. This is a natural remedy to cure headache. Just massage some on your forehead.

7. Anti-septic: Lavender Essential Oils are also great source of anti-septic. It helps in treating cuts and bruises. It also has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.

8. Aids Digestion Problem: Mix a few drops in your tea or coffee. This will act as a natural digestive agent. 

9. Insect Repellent: Lavender Essential oil is also a very nice insect-repellent. Use four drops onto your palms and legs and keep those devils away.

10.Boosts Immunity: Lavender Essential Oil also helps in boosting immunity and helps keep our system strong.

I have been using the Speaking Tree Lavender Essential Oil and really loving the effects of the oil. The oil acts great for relaxing and soothing my senses and also does a great job in skin care purposes.
