Soothing, calming, relaxing, subtle – these are all words that have been used to describe the benefits of Lavender essential oil.
With the holiday whirlwind bearing down upon us, I am reminding you to take time out for YOU and prevent taking on as much stress as possible. Is that possible? YES! With the introduction of the soothing energy of Lavender essential oil into your skincare routine and home environment, you will have the subtle flow of calm running through your life.
Right. Let’s try this – Lavender essential oil smells good – has wonderfully soothing qualities and is even safe to expose the kids to – like the ones jumping up and down on the beds in the other room right now. I love the scent and since I use lavender oil and products with lavender oil to relax, my brain now associates the scent with calm, even as the teenager announces an afterschool routine that has me in 3 places at once.
I start my mornings off with the English Lavender Shower Gel – that way I get the benefits throughout the day. If you see me snorting my arm, it means I am stressed.
I spread the lovely scent throughout the home with an essential oil diffuser so that everyone in the home (including the teenager) get the benefits of the lavender. Falling asleep on the couch at 8pm is not always lavender … it may have been the wine but wine and lavender benefits mix quite well.
Seriously, I love lavender oil and keep it close to hand – I figure I can use all the help I can get!
