Relax with Lavender

Did you know that Lavender has so many essential benefits. Not only does it smell lovely, it can do so much for us. Check out the list of things it can do: If you need to relax and unwind after a long day. How about a bath with lavender oil. I love this herb and use it in my home.
Uses for Lavender

In many different forms:
•As a dried herb to make a relaxing herbal tea (I often add Chamomile too) by steeping in hot (not boiling water) for a few minutes and adding honey
•In a tincture to help promote relaxation and sleep
•Adding the dried herb to homemade buckwheat pillows or sleep masks to help promote relaxing sleep
•To sooth sunburns or other burns, I add a few drops of the essential oil to a bottle of cool water and spray on burns to offer relief. The dried herb can also be brewed in to a strong tea and sprayed on instead.
•A strong lavender tea can be cooled and used as a scalp rinse to help prevent dandruff
•Adding a few drops of lavender essential oil or a cup of strong brewed lavender tea and a cup of epsom salts to a bath helps relax sore muscles.
•I sew dried lavender flowers into small satchels and use them in place of dryer sheets in the dryer
•For headaches, smelling lavender and peppermint oils or rubbing lavender oil into the temples often helps
•I often infuse lavender into vinegars for use in cooking or as a skin toner (diluted)
•The essential oil or lavender infused oil in homemade lotion bars, lotions, whipped body butter and more
•Lavender essential oil can be used topically to help with acne or skin irritations
•Simmering dried lavender herb in a pot of water with some citrus peels for a natural air freshener

Everything has precautions so look them up before you start to use this herb.
