broken image

One of the worst feelings in the world has got to be itchy, scratchy eyes! You know that sandy, gravelly feeling you get every time you blink? When you already feel terrible, it’s just one more thing you don’t want to have to deal with! 

Simply applying LAVENDER Essential Oil can help soothe those itchy, scratchy eyes and bring you some comfort and relief. 

Apply LAVENDER to cheek bones, above the eyebrows, and on the temples as needed. LAVENDER Essential Oil can be applied without dilution, but if you have sensitive skin, add one to two drops to a teaspoon of carrier oil such as Fractionated Coconut Oil to reduce possible skin sensitivity. 

Let’s take a closer look at this amazing, soothing oil.

LAVENDER has been used and cherished for centuries for its unmistakable aroma and myriad benefits. In ancient times, the Egyptians and Romans used LAVENDER for bathing, relaxation, cooking, and as a perfume. Its calming and relaxing qualities, when taken internally, continue to be LAVENDER’S most notable attributes. 

Applied topically, LAVENDER is frequently used to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections. Add to bath water to soak away stress or apply to the temples and the back of the neck. 

Add a few drops of LAVENDER to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet to relax and prepare for a restful night’s sleep. Due to LAVENDER’S versatile properties, it is considered the must - have oil to have on hand at all times.


Add a few drops of LAVENDER to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet at bedtime.

Keep a bottle of LAVENDER on hand to soothe occasional skin irritations.

• Freshen your linen closet, mattress, car, or the air by combining LAVENDER with water in a spray bottle.

Take internally to reduce anxious feelings.
