The Health Benefits of Lavender Essential Oil

The health benefits of lavender essential oil include its ability to:

  • Remove nervous tension
  • Relieve pain
  • Disinfect scalp and skin
  • Enhance blood circulation
  • Treat respiratory problems

Lavender essential oil induces sleep and is often recommended for insomnia. It is also effective against insect bites and the oil is used to repel mosquitoes and moths. You will find many mosquito repellents containing lavender oil as one of the ingredients. Lavender has the Latin name Lavare, which means “to wash”, due to its aroma which fills a room spread with lavender oil with a clean aroma.

*Essential oils are specific to an individual’s mind/body constitution. To find out which is right for you, please contact me for a Wellness Consult.

    Thanks, Gina.
    Love the lavender oil. You suggested it for sleep and it truly works. I use it every night.

    Gina, I’ve been using lavender oil at bedtime for several months now. I am sleeping more peacefully through the night and, upon awakening, feeing more rested, refreshed and ready for the day. I’m keeping rose oil in my purse and/or in a spritzer to apply during the day, which works great to cool off physically and emotionally. I thank you (and so do those close to me, whether they know it or not). It’s wonderful that such small things can make such a big difference. Blessings, Tricia
