This is the oil that started my love affair with doTERRA and ultimately led me to purchasing a kit and deciding to start a business with doTERRA so it is only natural that I kick off my top 10 oils series with my first oil love - Lavender.

Lavender has been used and cherished for centuries for its unmistakable aroma and myriad benefits. In ancient times, the Egyptians and Romans used Lavender for bathing, relaxation, cooking, and as a perfume. Its calming and relaxing qualities, when taken internally, continue to be Lavender’s most notable attributes. Applied topically, Lavender is frequently used to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections. Add to bath water to soak away stress or apply to the temples and the back of the neck. Add a few drops of Lavender to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet to relax and prepare for a restful night’s sleep. Due to Lavender’s versatile properties, it is considered the must-have oil to have on hand at all times.

Pure comfort, this is your oil for all things soothing. Think skin - sleep - emotions.Here are just some of the ways you can use Lavender:

  • Diffuse at night for a more restful sleep
  • Make a roller bottle with fractionated coconut oil to carry throughout the day to ease anxious feelings
  • Massage into your little one's feet before bed
  • Add to a relaxing bedtime bath
  • Soothe sunburn by adding to aloe vera gel
  • Support burns by applying over affected area
  • Speed healing for bruises
  • Stop itching for mozzie bites
  • Soothe ant and other bites
  • Pop a few drops on your pillow when changing your sheets
  • Add a few drops to a damp face washer and place in dryer with clothes to scent your load
  • Add 1 drop to your facial serum or moisturiser for enhanced skin hydrating and soothing properties
  • Diffuse during sickness to support against a persistent cough
  • Add a few drops to a cookie recipe for lavender cookies
  • Add 1 drop + 1 tsp coconut oil to a cup of chamomile tea as an extra soothing night cap
