How to Use
Lavender has been used for centuries for everything from calming and relaxing the mind to healing the skin.
Calming: Rub a few drops of oil on your feet, temples or wrists.
Soothing: Place a drop of oil on a sting or bite to reduce itching and swelling
Relaxing: Add 1 cup of Epsom salts and a few drops of lavender to a bath to relieve aches and pains.
A little goes a long way: 1 mL is approximately 25 drops. Add 2 drops of essential oil to flavour a 500mL batch of whipping cream.
*check with your health care practitioner before using essential oils if you are pregnant or are being treated for any medical condition
