In this blog, I'd like to introduce you to 'The Lavender Collection' and I'd like to thank Jen @ Loving Essential Oils for her inspiration and recipe ideas.
It's stressful times these days, with Covid 19 coronavirus sweeping through the world and in stressful times some might find it beneficial to use the calming influence of lavender to help them through their day or through the night due to its gentle sedative properties, it helps reduce nervous tension allowing a restful nights sleep.
Lavender has been used for thousands of years, and for good reason too. Not only does it help the mind, it also has anti-septic qualities that make it a good first aid oil for the body, whether that be a minor wound or an irritating skin condition like eczema. It's versatile and can be used in many forms, whether in a roll-on, diffuser or as an ingredients in bath salts to ease muscle tension.
Lavender and Peppermint Oil
They are both great for pain/headaches and beneficial first aid essential oils.
Lavender and Sweet Orange Oil
Lavender pairs great with citrus oils and sweet orange. Together they are soothing, relaxing, just the ticket when you are feeling a bit stressed or simply worn out.
Lavender and Lemongrass Oil
As I mentioned earlier the aroma of lavender oil is well known for calming and gentle sedative properties, while lemongrass oil has a fresh lemony aroma that is uplifting and cleansing. A little bit of both in this combination.
Lavender and Bergamot Oil
I love bergamot, that's the fragrance you can smell in Earl Grey tea, slightly citrus, uplifting but calming in the same thing, it is a great tonic for the nervous system. Then add lavender to the mix and you have something quite special.
Lavender and Frankincense Oil
Need to relax or even doing some mindfulness practice, this blend would be your go to. Take a deep breath and relax.........
Lavender and Vetiver
Never heard of Vetiver? Neither had I until I started this little project, which is now not so little!
Vetiver is a wonderful oil to restore your mood and energy when feeling burnt out and exhausted - there's a lot of that around right now. Over-sensitivities, irritability and anger can all be helped and it also aids to balance a highly strung nervous system.
