L A V E N D E R 💜.
This oil is the reason why I started loving Essential Oils as much as I do! .
Lavender has so many benefits.. I personally find it so soothing and calming, it gave me a peace within me I didn’t know I could get by using an oil in my life.
(Since then I have discovered many other ones as well, but this was a familiar way to begin my love for EO)
For centuries lavender has been used for sleep. It has been put into pillows and mattresses, wrapped up with clothes, added to handkerchiefs (hello, personal diffuser) and used in aromatherapy for relaxation. It has been added to all kinds of tonics and potions for skin and smelling salts for fragile ladies whose corsets were tied a little too tight.
Unfortunately, over the years, many "lavender" scented items became filled with synthetics and fillers which actually irritated our airways and lost all of their benefits. People even started giving lavender a bad reputation as being unsafe because of all the synthetic, chemical-laden products that had been used bearing its name.
There is more lavender oil sold than grown in the world which doesn't really add up right.
Young Living began growing and distilling its own lavender to ensure a high quality oil, making sure that we had the real thing again.
