My Favorite Uses For Lavender Oil
Written By Cyndi Curtis 3/22/15
In the world of essential oils, I think everyone knows lavender oil. Lavender oil is like a old friend, you can always go to. You know what to expect, and it feels comfortable. To me that is lavender essential oil. I have a couple of standard ways I use essential oils around the house weekly.
I will use just about any essential oil, but there are a few favorites. What makes my favorites list isn't about brand it's more about value and quality. Take Insta-Natural's Lavender Essential Oil. I like it because it's in a fair sized bottle(4 oz.) and comes with a dropper(glass bottle and dropper). So for $19.97 I have confidence that it's a fair value. My recipes for lavender essential oil are below.
Insta-Natural Lavender OilLavender Room Spray
A inexpensive water bottle(6 oz size)
1-6 drops of Lavender essential oil
1/2 cup of distilled water
Simply fill the water (spray) bottle up with room temp distilled water. Leave enough room for the drops of essential oil.
Now take the Insta-Natural Lavender essential oil and using the dropper, drop 1-6 droppers full of the lavender essential oil.
Replace the cap, shake well and set the sprayer to make sure it is set at a fine mist.
Spray to your hearts content!
(Tip: spray high in the air letting the mist fall through the air as high as possible for best results)
Lavender Oil Aroma Therapy
A small pot
2 cups of purified water
10 drops of lavender essential oil
(optional; 1/2 cup of lavender flowers dried)
Fill a pot up with about 2 cups of purifed water.
Using the dropper place approximately 10 drops of lavender oil
Turn the burner on low-med( a soft boil is okay)
Tip; close windows and doors so that you can fill the air with the steamy,scented mist of lavender oil.
You can also remove the water into a bowl and place the bowl in a room you want scented.
Lavender oil can help purify the indoor air and can be alternated between using charcoal(bamboo) and a combination of other essential oils.
*** Sometimes after I wash the floor with hot water, or steam my floors with the shark steamer, I break out the mop and bucket(old school for sure) and fill it with piping hot water half way, and drop in about 10-15 drops of lavender essential oil. It just smells so nice and makes the entire house smell lavender-y for hours and hours. No other method of air purifying needed on that day!
