History of Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender’s ability to support tissue regeneration and boost the healing of wounds was first discovered by French scientist Rene Gattefosse, who burned his arm in a laboratory accident. Since then, lavender has become one of the most utilized essential oils and is one of the few oils to still be listed in the British Pharmacopoeia.
Lavender essential oil evokes feelings of physical and mental calm, relaxation, and balance. Researchers have found that diffusing certain aromas, such as lavender essential oil, in office and test-taking environments can also help reduce the number of errors and support concentration, mental acuity, reduced stress, and improve alertness.

DIY Ideas for Lavender Essential Oil
- Lavender Body Butter/Body Lotion – There are so many options to creating a DIY Body Butter or Body Lotion so find a recipe that you like and then add up to 20 drops of Lavender into your lotion to create a relaxing and pleasing body moisturizer. You can also add other essential oils to create your own unique blend.
- Lavender Relaxing Bath – You can add 5 to 8 drops of Lavender Essential Oil straight to your hot bath water or you can take a cup of Epsom Salt and mix the Lavender in with the salts. Either way you will have a very relaxing bathing experience.
- Lavender After Sun Spray – Although Young Living has a product called Lavederm that is awesome as an after sun spray for your body it is still fun to make your own spray at home and sometimes you can’t wait for the mail to arrive! So grab your Lavender and Peppermint Essential Oils, a spray bottle, distilled water and some aloe vera and make your own after sun skin spray! I would start with 3 to 5 drops of Peppermint and 5 to 10 drops of Lavender depending on the size of your spray bottle! Mix all the ingredients together and then try on your skin. The Peppermint will help cool down the sun kissed skin and the Lavender will work its magic by revitalizing your skin after a day in the sun.
- Lavender Pillow Mist – Misting your pillow with Lavender Essential Oil before bedtime can be a calming tradition that can aid in your relaxation to help you sleep more soundly at night. Grab a glass spray bottle and add distilled water and 8 to 12 drops of Lavender Essential Oil. I also like to add Ylang Ylang to this combination once in awhile.
