Oil of the month – Lavendar

Lavendar is a universal oil that has traditionally been know to balance the body and to work wherever there is a need.  If in doubt, use Lavendar. Its a wonderful calming oil and like peppermint is one I usually use on most clients.

Great for headaches when used is specific spots on the body.  Gently eliminates a  headache that a client may come in with in 99.9% of cases!

Safe to use during pregancy, may help calm nerves or emotions for mom – to -be, and help with sleep disturbances.

EXTRACTION METHOD/ORIGIN   –  Steam distilled from flowering tip – France, Idaho, Utah.

PROPERTIES ; Analgesic, Anti-coagulant, anti-depressant, anti-fungal, sedative, skin regenerative, ant-inflammatory.

One of my fellow therapists mentioned that she puts a drop of lavendar in her mascara bottle to thin it out and get more shine from eye lashes.

I do not use mascara so cannot say either way , if you do  give it a try !


Aside from always having a bottle at the office I also do at home.   Using it neat on cuts, burns and scrapes, it can help to dissinfect a sore area, and speed the healing process on burns.  Also great for stopping bleeding on major cuts – I cut my thumb badly headed straight for Lavendar and was amazed at how instantly the throbbing and bleeding stopped – I went on to have 7 stitches and did not need to take any of the pain killers as I just applied Lavendar every time it started throbbing.

NOTE:  Lavendar oil is one of the oils that is adultarated the most often with a cheaper hybrid called lavendin – it smells just like lavendar and is hard to tell apart with smell alone.    The chemical constituant of Lavendin is very different though – I would not advise putting Lavendar oil directly on a cut or burn unless you KNOW it is pure Lavendar oil – otherwise it will burn.
