How to use Lavender Essential Oil in everyday life

At the farm we often refer to lavender essential oil as "liquid gold".  It's pale golden hue is certainly apt, but it is in the myriad of everyday uses that lavender essential oil's precious value comes to the fore.  It's application spans the breadth of daily life from personal care and therapeutic to home and pet care settings.  Like gold, it is also costly to create.  Our lavender fields produce an average of 1 fluid ounce of pure essential oil for every 2 mature plants in our distillery.  It requires an immense amount of plant material to create a very small amount of essential oil*, but, like gold, it only takes a little bit to be effective.  Lavender essential oil is so potent, any application requires only a few drops.  Scroll down to learn how a few drops will benefit your daily life...

How to use lavender essential oil in everyday life



Lavender Essential Oil is one of the few natural plant oils that be can applied undiluted directly to the skin with no toxic effects.  As such, it is highly effective as a topical antiseptic, anesthetic and anti-inflammatory in many common therapeutic situations:
  • superficial cooking or baking burns
  • bee stings or bug bites
  • abrasions
  • preventing wound infection
  • treating pimples (utilizing lavender's natural solvent property as well!)
  • minimizing scar formation during healing processes

*This is true for all pure essential oils. Which is why pure essential oils are more expensive than "essences", "oils", "aromas" or any of the other names that others give to products that, rather than containing only the pure plant oil, often contain fillers or synthetic fragrances.  It's best to avoid these imposters and use only, pure plant essential oils.  Because they are unadulterated, a little bit goes a very long way and they have very long shelf-lives — both mitigating the initial cost.
