WHAT IS ORGANIC LAVENDER OIL?

Lavender oil is one of the most popular oils in aromatherapy. It comes from the Lavandula angustifolia plant and results in over 30 different kinds of lavender. It is a popular ingredient in many lotions, soaps, body washes, and sprays, but is most commonly used in the form of an oil. 

Individuals who use lavender oil have said that it helps tremendously with anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. It is known as a relaxation oil that, when breathed in, helps to calm nerves, lessen anxiety, and overall improve your mood. 

BENEFITS OF LAVENDER OIL

Along with helping to ease anxiety and nerves, lavender oil is said to have many other benefits. This oil is predominantly known to be inhaled in aromatherapy diffusers, but it can also be applied directly to the skin. Here are some other benefits of lavender oil that studies have shown it has been effective in helping: 

  • Treats allergy symptoms
  • Helps to lengthen eyelashes
  • Hair loss reversal
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea

THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR

Despite the natural healing powers of lavender oil, it is not recommended to use in place of prescription medications or therapy. Since lavender oil is not regulated by the FDA, it is important to use this oil as purely an added benefit to the help that you may already be receiving. It is also possible for skin irritation, rashes, or headaches to occur after using lavender oil. If you experience any negative symptoms, refrain from using this oil, and notify a professional immediately.
