Pure lavender oil is one of the gentlest of the essential oils, but also one of the most powerful. It is all things calming to the body, and it is amazing for your mood and for your skin.
Further, due to Lavender’s versatile properties, it is considered the must-have oil to have on hand at all times, especially for Mumas & Mumas-To-Be:
Quick Fix: Dilute 1 part lavender essential oil with 3 parts fractionated coconut oil (or other organic carrier oil such as jojoba oil or almond oil) in a spray bottle or roller bottle to help clear up skin irritations, such as chaffing. Great for little ones!
A Sleep Time Trick: Add a few drops of Lavender to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet to promote a restful night’s sleep, for all members of the family.
Take Out The ‘Ouch’: Put on insect bites to reduce the sting and encourage quicker healing. Use on burns to encourage faster healing. Relieve the pain & sensitivity of sore gums, dry or chapped lips and occasional scrapes. And, use to assist with soothing skin after too much sun.
Clear Your Mind: Apply to the temples and the back of the neck to lessen the effects of stress and anxiety, which comes with both pregnancy and being a Mum. And, if you have time, add it to bath water with epson salts or magnesium flakes to soak away the day’s stress and to promote a restful nights sleep.
Care For Your Baby Belly: Rub lavender essential oil mixed with fractionated coconut oil (or other organic carrier oil such as jojoba oil or almond oil) onto an itchy tummy while pregnant.
Baby Massage: Dilute 1 – 2 drops of lavender oil in 1 tablespoon of fractionated coconut oil (or other organic carrier oil such as jojoba oil or almond oil) and gently massage, allowing your baby to enjoy the benefits of your touch and attention.
Emotionally lavender is the oil of communication. It aids verbal expression. It calms the insecurities that are felt when we risk our true thoughts and feelings. Lavender addresses the fear of being seen and being heard.
Lavender encourages emotional honesty and insists that we speak our innermost thoughts and desires. It is through open and honest communication that we experience unconditional love and acceptance.
Through lavenders courageous spirit, one is free to share their true self with others.
