Today, we’re going to talk about the benefits of lavender oil. Aside from the tranquil and beautiful scent, lavender has qualities that are great for your overall health. But before getting started on that, we’re going to share a little story.
The Story Behind Lavender
Lavender is the most used essential oil around the world. Ancient texts tell us that the oil has been used for various reasons in the past that include medicinal and religious purposes. We’re talking 2,500 years of history! The Egyptians used it for perfume and the Romans used it for bathing, cooking and scenting the air.
Today we use lavender oil for many reasons. It helps with the following:
- Reduces anxiety and stress
- Helps heal burns, scars and wounds
- Improves sleep (helps you relax)
- Reduces Acne
- Restores skin complexion
- Contains antioxidants
- Improves headaches
The Facial Benefits of Lavender Oil
One of the most common benefits of lavender is for the skin. Many people use the oil as part of their facial routine. The great news is that when you’re constantly in contact with it, smelling it, then you also benefit from all its other qualities. So while your skin gets all the goodies, you get to also relax.
Another great thing is that when you go for products that use lavender essential oil, then chances are you’re going for natural and even organic products. This means products (facial soaps and cleansers, moisturizers and lotions) that stay away from toxic and artificial scents. But how does lavender help the skin. What does it really do?
Research has shown that lavender has antibacterial and anti-fungal qualities. Which means, it keeps your skin nice and clean – and smelling fresh. Also, our skin gets tired, and exposed to toxins on a daily basis. “Lavender can help combat both culprits with a one-two punch. It contains powerful antioxidants that will prevent and counteract the irritating effects of pollutants on the skin.”
