Lavender essential oil is steam distilled from the flowering tops of the plant. It is clear or pale yellow in color, and has a distinct floral and herbaceous aroma that is sweet and clean.

Lavender essential oil is amazing in its extensive positive benefits that effect the mind, spirit, body, and even your home. No doubt, it is deserving of the name it has earned of being the most versatile of all essential oils. Whether you use it for medicinal purposes, for its known relaxing properties, or for it's distinct floral scent, it is the one oil that I would place first in any collection for aromatherapy. It is an extremely useful essential oil and although powerful in its beneficial properties, it is one of the few essential oils that is gentle enough to apply directly on the skin.

Lavender is an analgesic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic, to name a few properties. It's applications are numerous, and is used for many skin problems, stress related conditions, muscular pain, and is even an insecticide. To help alleviate headaches, apply a few drops to the temples.

Lavender essential oil connects and blends well with most oils, whether it be rosemary, thyme, clary sage, cedarwood, pine, peppermint, or the citrus oils like bergamot. It is frequently used where a pleasant scent is wanted such as in baths, perfume oils, room sprays, sachets and skin lotions. But since it is a gentle to the skin, it can be used in any skin care, as it has healing powers powerful enough to help heal burned skin. Combine Lavender with other calming oils to make a night time sachet to strategically place under your pillow, and then, sweet dreams.

Also, get this: For your canine animal friends, you may use lavender for their needs as well (but not compatible with cats). Treat your injured or older dog with a massage oil for muscle pain and stiffness or you can diffuse lavender in the air for coughs or respiratory infections. It is also a good flea and tick repellent, and will serve to calm and relax them as it does humans.

Side Effects: of Lavender

Lavender essential oil is generally safe, and is actually gentle enough to used undiluted on skin.

Importantly, be aware that many commercial products use lavender and it's popular name in products where real lavender oil content is as low as 3%. The value in true Lavender essential oil goes far beyond the benefits and enjoyment of the scent.
