Lavender is known for its relaxing, soothing properties and is most commonly used in aromatherapy!
The fragrance from the oils of the lavender plant is believed to help promote calmness and wellness. It’s also said to help reduce stress, anxiety, and possibly even mild pain.
Lavender is packed with antioxidants that protect, nourish, and even heal your skin with its antimicrobial properties, making it a perfect addition to any skincare formula. It also provides good germ-fighting properties. Mixed with coconut oil it is the perfect lip balm to relieve chapped lips.
It is also an anti-inflammatory, so it can be used to relieve inflamed and itchy skin caused by eczema or insect bites. It can soothe and ultimately help heal a sunburn.
