Lavender is sometimes called the “Swiss army knife” of all oils. It is super versatile and probably the most universally enjoyed aroma of all the oils. It’s the first essential oil I always grab for! No first aid kit should be without it. It’s not only calming and helpful for stress relief and promoting a better nights sleep, but it is also effective in cases of minor cuts, bruises, skin irritations, and burns.
Some ideas for using lavender essential oil:
Add 8-10 drops of lavender oil to your epsom salt bath to promote relaxation and muscle recovery.
