Health Benefits of Lavender Essential Oil
The various support and possible health benefits of lavender essential oil
include the following:
Lavender essential oil has a calming scent which makes it an excellent
tonic for the nerves and anxiety issues. Therefore, it can also be helpful
in treating migraines, headaches, depression, nervous tension and emotional
stress. The refreshing aroma removes nervous exhaustion and restlessness
while also increasing mental activity. It has a well-researched impact on
the nervous system, which is why it is frequently used as a treatment for
insomnia and also as a way to regulate heart-rate variability. One study
showed that people taking tests showed a significant decrease in mental
stress and anxiety, as well as increased cognitive function when they
inhaled lavender oil and rosemary oil before taking the exam!*

Lavender is the most loved aromatic used in aromatherapy today. Besides
being versatile, its lightly floral and soothing scent is one that most
people find appealing. In therapeutic terms, lavender is the most useful
oil, and one that every aromatherapy kit should include. It's also one of
the few essential oils that can be applied neat. Lavender has a long
history of use in many different cultures but is probably most associated
with the English for its use in many of their perfumes.

What are essential oils?
Essential Oils are the naturally occurring volatile oils obtained by steam
distillation or cold pressing (expression), having the characteristic aroma
of the plant part from which it was derived. These 100% pure oils are
"neat", meaning they have not been processed, diluted or manipulated in any
way with solvents or other additives. Although a particular species of
plant harvested and distilled for its essential oil during a particular
growing season in a specific region may produce a fragrance that differs
from the same species grown in a different region, many of the main
chemical markers and physical specifications may be very similar.
Do essential oils have a grading system to tell me which is better?
There is no official grading system that grades essential oils as A, B, C
or Therapeutic grade. All of LifeSource pure essential oils are accurately
labeled as such and are the highest purity and quality available.
Essential oils are volatile oils taken from plants using extraction or
distillation. These oils are usually used in perfumes and medications.
Although essential oils were used in ancient history, French chemist,
René-Maurice Gattefossé coined the term "aromatherapy" in 1928. He
published his book, "L'Aromatherapie", in 1937 and made "aromatherapy" a
common word. Gattefossé also was very supportive of the lavender farmers
and helped them to succeed.
Gattefossé demonstrated how effective lavender oil was on skin when he
severely burned his hand and doused it with pure lavender oil, immediately
stopping the tissue gasification. He said his hand not only healed quickly,
it healed without scarring.
Applying Lavender Oil
Apply lavender directly from the bottle to the skin. Unlike other essential
oils, lavender doesn't have to be diluted. But if you want to dilute it,
combine 2.5 to 10 percent of lavender essential oil to a carrier oil like
olive, jojoba or almond oils.
Pour lavender oil onto cotton and apply to burns for healing without
scarring. Add a few drops of lavender oil to a bowl of cool water. Make a
compress and apply it to your sunburn for healing.
Dab lavender oil onto acne blemishes or skin infections with a cotton swab,
as a natural antibiotic. According to the U.S. National Library of
Medicine, science has shown lavender oils have antibiotic properties.
Beautify, moisturize and tone your skin by misting it with a combination of
purified water and a few drops of lavender oil in a bottle. Shake it well
before each use.
Experiment with using lavender oil directly on stretch marks three times
each day. This simple home remedy claims to fade stretch marks.
Lavender oil is extracted mostly from the flowers of the lavender plant,
primarily through steam distillation. The flowers of lavender are fragrant
in nature and have been used for making potpourri for centuries.
Traditionally, lavender essential oil has also been used in making
perfumes. The oil is very useful in aromatherapy and many aromatic
preparations and combinations are made using lavender oil.
Lavender oil blends well with many other essential oils including
cedarwood, pine clary sage, geranium, and nutmeg. Today, lavender essential
oil is frequently used in various forms including aromatherapy oil, gels,
infusion, lotion, and soaps.
