Lavender Essential Oil is one of the most popular among the essential oils and it is extremely versatile oil with a plethora of uses. In aromatherapy, it is thought to have a calming and soothing effect on the senses. Add a few drops to your diffuser or burner and immerse yourself in the relaxing nature of Lavender Oil.
Lavender Oil is well known for its relaxant properties, and therefore is often features in massage oils blends, particularly calming blends. Used in massage before bedtime, it can help you unwind and let go of the stresses of the day.
