Top 15 Lavender Essential Oil Uses:
1. Nighttime Support-
There are so many great ways to use lavender essential oil at bedtime! You can add a drop on your pillow to help ease your mind and calm you down from the day. You can add about 30 drops into a 30 ml glass spray bottle filled with water and spray it on your family’s pillows before bed. Another way is you can start diffusing it about 30 minutes before bedtime to help promote a restful sleep!
2. Hair Support-
Lavender makes a great addition to any hair treatment, shampoo, or conditioner. It can help keep the scalp looking clean and healthy. You can add a couple of drops to the shampoo or conditioner that you are currently using.
