When people discover essential oils for the first time, they’re often guided towards Lavender (or to give it it’s Latin name, Lavandula angustifolia). A popular fragrance in everyday life, Lavender is familiar territory for many people – it’s often found in home cleaning products, air fresheners, washing powders, shampoos and more.
Therefore, it’s not a great leap for many people to drop a few drops of Lavender in their diffuser. What will be surprising for the first time Lavender Essential Oils user is the purity of the fragrance. Unlike a synthetic fragrance found in the above products, the crisp freshness of a few drops of Lavender can work wonders.
Part of the ‘Relaxing’ family of NYR Organic Essential Oils, the 10ml bottle of Lavender Essential Oil, made in England, can be used for all kinds of uses. Some of the recommended uses of this oil include:
Bath & Shower
Inhale the aromatic stream while your skin absorbs all the benefits of the oil. For adults, add up to 5 drops in 2 tbsp bath oil, shower gel, full-fat milk or carrier oil. For children over 2 years old or adults with sensitive skin, reduce the amount to up to 2 drops per 2 tbsp.
This technique helps to clear your head and nose. For adults, add 4–6 drops to a bowl of steaming water, place a towel over your head and breathe. Children over 2 years old, adults with sensitive skin and asthmatics should not inhale directly. Instead, place the bowl of hot water with added oils in the room nearby.
Relaxes your body and mind while helping to soothe aching muscles. For adults, use up to 15 drops in 2 tbsp of base oil. For children over 2 years old or adults with sensitive skin, use up to 6 drops in 2 tbsp of base oil.
Diffusers & Burners
A natural air freshener, this technique creates a relaxing ambience and mood. For adults, add 1–3 drops in a diffuser or burner. For children over 2 years old, add 1–3 drops in a diffuser.
Since I started diffusing NYR Organic’s Lavender Essential Oil I have been thoroughly impressed with both the quality and the fragrance. I’m a big fan of my diffuser, and a few drops in the water pool genuinely create a calm and relaxing environment.
