Having given myself a mild sunburn yesterday, it seems appropriate to say a word about the wonders of Lavender. A few drops mixed with a teaspoon of Jojoba oil quickly reduced the stinging of my overly pink skin. I’ve also had great results using it on the allergy related rashes.
- Mild topical anesthetic
- Calming – great for stressful days
- Soothing on irritated skin
- Improves sleep
- Antibacterial – often recommended for Acne
Use on the skin, mixed with a carrier oil, or in a diffuser. A few drops on a tissue near your head works well at night.
Note: Too much can be stimulating, use just a few drops until you know how you react.
