My Oily Experience With Lavender
Lavender is beloved around our house. I typically add a couple drops of lavender to some Epson salts and toss it into my daughter’s morning bath water. Not only does this soothe her irritated skin, but it also tends to give her a gentle attitude adjustment when she’s cranky. I also really love using it in my laundry.
I’ve tried other oils, but lavender is my absolute favorite scent to use with my wool dryer balls; 2-3 drops is all it takes. Not to mention that I’m constantly smelling my clothes now. Cause seriously, they smell heavenly!
Also, we thoroughly enjoy diffusing lavender essential oil in the evening hours. Sometimes by itself, sometimes combined with other oils such as Valor or KidScents Sleepyize to promote restful sleep. Works wonders!
