Here we are on day one of our journey through the 10 Oils in the Everyday Essential Oils Collection!

And we’re off! Lavender Oil is one of the best known oils that comes in the Young Living Everyday Oils kit, so I’ve decided to start here. :)

Lavender is an extremely versatile oil. Here are just a few ideas of how you can use it in your daily life:

1. Diffuse for a comforting and calming scent.
2. Unwind by adding a few drops to a nighttime bath.
3. Diffuse for a fresh, clean scent and to eliminate odors.
4. May complement some of your favorite shampoos, lotions, or skin care products.
5. Is a key ingredient in many blends, including Stress Away™, Tranquil™, RutaVaLa™, Forgiveness™, and Harmony™.

Lavender is one of my very favorite oils to diffuse – especially in the evenings after a long night!

Whenever I get a new cut I put lavender oil right on it. This allows for cleaning and a quick healing process, so I don’t have to worry about it getting any worse. I am a new mom, so I don’t always have time for myself! I keep a bottle of Young Living lavender oil in my diaper bag. ~Katie in California

I have been taking epsom salt baths for a while now, but now that I’ve started adding my oils into the mix they have taking bath time to a whole new level of relaxation! Here is one of my most loved Bath Salt recipes:

Ingredients
1-1/2 Cups Epsom Salt
10 Drops of Young Living Lavender Essential Oil

Directions
1. Combine Epsom Salt and Lavender oil in glass jar and mix until combined.
2. Add 1/2 cup to a warm bath for a wonderfully relaxing experience or 1/4 cup to a large bowl of warm water to create a foot soak.

As you can see these salts are super easy to make and the best part is that not only does taking a bath in them feel and smell good – it is super good for you too and free of the harmful chemicals that are found in so many bath products. 

I purchased the jar that I have pictured above from Hobby Lobby for $2.99 and get my epsom salt in a box that contains two 6lb bags from Costco for a little under $10.

where-to-buy-lavender
Very Important: All of the above testimonials and recipes refer specifically to Young Living’s therapeutic grade Lavender Oil. Please do not attempt to purchase lavender from a retail store. The lavender that is sold in stores is a completely different formula that is at best diluted and at worst adulterated. Check out my post on why I chose Young Living oils for more details on this topic. All oils are not created equal. It is definitely a case of ‘you get what you pay for’.

You can purchase Lavender Oil from Young Living as a retail customer, but it is a much better value to purchase it as a wholesale member (24% less in fact)! Lavender is even included in the Young Living Essential Oils Premium Start Kit.
