As I’ve recently recorded a video on how to improve your quality and quantity of sleep, it only seemed right that I choose Lavender as my oil of the month. There are not many people that don’t know the link between lavender and restful sleep (you’ve not doubt seen, if not tried, lavender pillows, pillow sprays and bath milks, to name a few of the related products. But did you know that if the lavender oil is 100% certified pure, it can also be taken internally to promote restful sleep and feelings of calm?
With its very distinct aroma, Lavender has been used for centuries. The Romans and Egyptians used it as perfume and for bathing and cooking but since then a whole host of other uses have been discovered. As well as being calming to the mind (and scientifically proven to lower cortisol levels, the stress hormone), lavender is also extremely calming to the skin for things like burns, bites and stings, as well as rashes and soreness.
The versatile properties of Lavender essential oil make it a doTERRA best seller, and a must-have oil to keep in your medicine kit.
