Did you know lavender oil is the most used essential oil in the world?
There is a reason for this; its benefits are close to limitless! Below you will find some of the health and beauty benefits associated with adding Lavender into your daily schedule.
- Lavender as an antioxidant: Unfortunately, living in America we are exposed to free radicals (toxins, chemicals, pollutants, etc.) all around us. This forces our immune systems to be suppressed. A major benefit of Lavender is helping your body produce three of your bodies most powerful antioxidants; glutathione, catalase, and SOD. Using lavender topically has proven to boost your body’s ability to produce these super oxidants within 22 hours. Just rub behind the ears.
- Diabetes Research: The studies are still new, but in 2014 lavender oil was proven to have positive results when it came to testing them with major symptoms of diabetes. Glucose levels, and liver and kidney function were just two of these.
- Improves Mood and Supports the Brain: Traditionally, lavender has been used to treat neurological issues like migraines, stress, anxiety, and depression. Even better, there have been no found side effects to treating these issues with lavender oil. Benefits can be found by using the oil topically, diffusing in the air, or taking 80 mg capsules.
- For the Skin: First, Lavender mixed with coconut oil has been proven to help treat even the worst sunburn, it can also be used to heal dry skin, as well and minor cuts, scrapes and burns. Secondly, mixing lavender and frankincense can help reduce sun spots and dramatically improves age spots. Just apply to a clean face before bed, and in the morning after a shower.
