Soothing, calming, relaxing, subtle – these are all words that have been used to describe the benefits of Lavender essential oil.
With our busy lives and brains working overtime, we all need to take some CALM time and release the stress that accrues throughout our week. Using the soothing energy of Lavender essential oil in your home environment and even skincare routine , you can invite the subtle flow of calm running through your life. Doesn’t that sound lovely? And it smells good too!
Lavender essential oil smells delicious and is programmed to connect directly with the relax function in our brains. It even has a calming effect on children … diffuse it in the evenings as the family is winding down or dot some oil on their pillows to help them sleep. Is anxiety riding roughshod over your life? According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, lavender not only calms and soothes but has sedative effects when it is inhaled. (Living with Anxiety)
NYR Organic has one of the best lavenders in the world – distilled from French lavender AND a vegan product as well.
Start your morning stress-free with English Lavender Shower Gel – it sets the tone for the day. If you see me snorting my arm, it means I am stressed.
I spread the lovely scent throughout the home with an essential oil diffuser so that everyone in the home (including my teenager) get the benefits of the lavender. Falling asleep on the couch at 8pm is not always lavender … it may have been the wine but wine and lavender benefits mix quite well.
I keep lavender oil close to hand – I figure I can use all the help I can get!
Check out all of the cool lavender products in my NYR Organic Shop – it is a great Self Care gift for yourself (and the children jumping up and down on the bed in the room next to you)!
