Lavender Essential Oil, 5ml
Lavender is a classic for a reason. The soothing scent relaxes and soothes and also is very skin reparative with a slight astringent toning affect. This bottle contains 5ml of pure lavender essential oil that you can use for diffusers or add to lotions, shampoos, conditioners, and body care products of your own. I also love to put lavender in my mop water or a spray bottle with water to leave the house fresh and clean.
Bonus Essential Oil Properties: Lavender was grown by nuns in the middle ages and uses for laundry washing. It was also used by young women as an aphrodisiac to attract male suiters and generally is lesser known for having those properties as well! Lavender is a premier skin-healer, promoting cell turn-over and helping your skin tissue repair from the inside-out. It's also strongly anti-bacterial and anti-viral making it ideal to try to kill the bacteria causing an acne flair up or to prevent them from happening in the first place.
Rene Maurice Gattefosse, a French chemist, accidentally discovered the incredible healing power of lavender essential oil in the 19th century when he immersed his hand in lavender oil after a lab accident. He was amazed by how quickly the burn completely healed with treated with the essential oil!
