Lavender Oil

Native to the Mediterranean, lavender now grows throughout the world. The flowers from the lavender plant produce a sweet, aromatic essential oil. Known by most people to have a soothing effect, it is also an excellent deodorant with anti-microbial properties. Lavender oil is also very versatile. For instance, it can be diffused in the air for aromatherapy or taken internally. Lavender oil is anti-toxic, antiseptic, sedative and stimulant.

Benefits of Lavender Oil for Skin:

  • Softens and heals skin. Lavender oil is known for its soothing properties. This makes it perfect for use on the skin since it softens the skin while healing damage resulting from minor wounds, irritants or bacteria.
  • Cleansing and anti-inflammatory properties. Highly anti-inflammatory, lavender oil encourages skin health. This versatile essential oil cleanses your pores while removing bacteria and other contributing factors which cause skin inflammatory conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
  • Treats acne. Not surprisingly, lavender oil is well known for its acne-reducing capabilities. This is due to a combination of powerful plant-based compounds that work to cleanse the skin and reduce inflammation. The result is skin that is less likely to have acne breakouts.
  • Antioxidant. Since it contains antioxidants, lavender oil also speeds up healing and thus promotes healthier skin in general.
