10 Ways To Use Lavender Essential Oil


©Sandy KS aka rusty2rusty
One thing I enjoy using throughout my home is essential oils. I am thankful for the ones I am able to buy. As I can't afford to buy a full set at one time. I like to use them in making DIY hygiene supplies such as bath soaps, laundry soap and other recipes i find on Pinterest.

One scent I use the most is lavender. I wrote a review recently on Amazon.com about lavender essential oil I purchased. 

Here are 10 ways to use lavender essential oil 
1. Place a few drops on pillow cases to help aid in sleep.
2. Place a few drops in my daughter's mister to help calm her to fall to sleep.
3. Add a drop to a wasp sting to take the itching away.
4. To moisten dry or chap skin
5. Add scent when making my own laundry soap
6. Add scent when making my own fabric softener
7. Added scent when making my own bath salts.
8. Natural way to kill scabies and relives scabies itching.
9. It can be used as a deodorant or used in making your own deodorant
10. Helps with concentration

Do you use essential oils in your home? If so, how do you use them?

  1. Lavender essential oil is one of my favorites. It's also great to rub a small amount on the back of your neck and temples for relaxing. I make a body scrub with coconut oil and add a few drops of lavender to that also, smells so good!

    1. I did rub some on neck today for the neck and migraine pain. It did help. Thank you for the suggestion.

      Oh I have not made my own body scrubs yet. Do you have a recipe you care to share?

  3. I used lavender essential oil years ago to calm my then young son. I bought some in a shallow container with a sponge, that let it evaporate into the air. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. Oh I never thought of adding to a sponge and allowing it to evaporate over time. Great idea!!

  4. I think lavender is my all-time favourite essential oil. The only other one I use as often is tea tree oil :)

    1. I do add tea tree oil to shampoos. I have recently started experimenting with the oils. I want to make my own soap.

  5. I love the scent of lavender. These are great ideas! I'll have to give them a try. I have a bottle of lavender essential oil that came with a soap making kit.

  6. Yes, I do. I love using 100% lavender essential oil for my massage therapy. I do put a few drops in my selfmade mosquito repellent. I use this too when I burn my skin when cooking or baking,making body spray, making me asleep and calm. I have to try this in my laundry. Never thought of that. Thanks for the info.

    1. It works great in the laundry. A fresh towel right after a shower or bath before bed. Helps to calm and smooth to relax to sleep.
