The Bliss of Lavender

Updated: Jul 13, 2021

Lavender, So Much More Than Beauty

After doing some research on the web, I was overwhelmed by the uses of Lavender. So, here are just a few great ways to use Lavender.

  • As a dried herb to make a relaxing herbal tea by steeping in hot (not boiling water) for a few minutes and adding honey

  • In a tincture to help promote relaxation and sleep

  • Adding the dried herb to homemade buckwheat pillows or sleep masks to help promote relaxing sleep

  • To soothe sunburns or other burns, add a few drops of the essential oil to a bottle of cool water and spray on burns to offer relief. The dried herb can also be brewed in to a strong tea and sprayed on instead.

  • A strong lavender tea can be cooled and used as a scalp rinse to help prevent dandruff

  • Adding a few drops of lavender essential oil or a cup of strong brewed lavender tea and a cup of Epsom salts to a bath helps relax sore muscles.

  • sew dried lavender flowers into small satchels and use them in place of dryer sheets in the dryer

  • For headaches, smelling lavender and peppermint oils or rubbing lavender oil into the temples often helps

  • infuse lavender into vinegar for use in cooking or as a skin toner (diluted)

  • The essential oil or lavender-infused oil in homemade lotion bars, lotions, whipped body butter, and more

  • Lavender essential oil can be used topically to help with acne or skin irritations

  • Simmering dried lavender herb in a pot of water with some citrus peels for a natural air freshener

Did you know that Lavender has been named as one of the most useful of the essences for the relief of anxiety and stress? Now you know!
