Lavender has a long history of use in natural remedies and as a natural scent and perfume.
Lavender is also used to help you relax so you can fall asleep easily. It’s sometimes used by those with insomnia as a natural alternative to drugs.
You can add lavender to your coconut oil and use for skin care, cuts (works well for dogs too), and insect bites due to its antibacterial properties.
And don’t forget to add a few drops of pure lavender essential oil to your bath water. You’ll not only feel relaxed but smell amazing.
You can place lavender plant outside to ward of scorpions, they don’t like it at all.
A word of caution – be mindful of where you purchase your essential oils. You want to choose a high quality oil and in most cases, purchasing them at the drugstore is not where you will find a high quality oil. I recommend you research online to find a brand you feel good about. I personally use doTERRA and there are lots of other great brands out there, you just need to do your research.
