Lavender Essential Oil Uses & Benefits

Home / Wellness / Lavender Essential Oil Uses & Benefits

Lately I’ve been doing more of the cooking at home to serve my family. It’s a good thing Shana, Ashlynne and Silas are okay with having chicken and potatoes more than a couple nights a week. No, I’m not kidding. To say I’m a seasoned chef is quite a stretch considering I only use a few spices and a handful of different foods.

It’s no surprise that on more than one occasion I’ve had minor burns on my hands after making dinner. All it takes is a bit of lavender oil to soothe my skin and help support my skin’s recovery. If you are a better cook, you may not need it for minor burns, but you’re sure to find a use for lavender oil in your home. It has been used for over 2,500 years and is now the most used essential oil.


Practical uses for lavender essential oil:

  • Widely used for its calming and relaxing qualities
  • Soothes occasional skin irritations
  • Helps skin recover quickly
  • Eases muscle tension

Emotionally, lavender essential oil is considered The Oil of Communication. It helps promote communication, reduce fear and tension, and encourage a courageous spirit.

Lavender is also found in these blends – Tension Blend, Calming Blend, Monthly Blend, Anti-Aging Blend, and Massage Blend.

Due to Lavender’s versatility and soothing properties, it is considered the must-have oil to have on hand at all times.

Essential Oil Quality: The essential oil industry is not a regulated industry which means it’s difficult to know which brands you can trust to be truly 100% certified pure therapeutic grade and safe for your whole family. I did my research to find a brand I can trust. If you want to learn about the brand I personally use or order essential oils for your home, please email
