G’day Y’all! Its going to be a great week! This week’s featured product is Lavender Essential Oil. Keep scrolling to learn about this oil and read my embarrassing stories related to it. ⤵️
How I have use Young Living Lavender Essential oil:
- around my eyes and nose for seasonal allergies
- on acne
- on bug bites
- directly onto scratches and cuts
- on infected piercings (got a fresh piercing right before traveling… not the smartest move)
- mixed with aloe vera, lotion, or in a spray for sunburns
- on rashes
- I put it on pretty much any skin issues really
- diffuse it or breathe it in to relax
After a couple months of living in Australia, I still didn’t fully understand the power of the Aussie sun. On one occasion, I went to the beach with some friends and we all decided “hey, let’s tan our stomachs”. This sounded like a fabulous idea but one thing was overlooked: the blazing sun, failing ozone layer, and blinding white skin never mixes well.
I haphazardly slapped some sunscreen onto my shoulders and went to soak up the sun. Unbeknownst to me, I rested my hand, which still had a remnant of sunscreen on it, onto my stomach. A few hours later, to my horror, I discovered that I had, not only gotten an extremely painful sunburn, but also burned a distinct handprint onto my stomach.
I must have used half my bottle of Lavender oil that day trying to right my wrongs, and we all had a good laugh about it.
Lavender oil has also been my trusty sidekick when I had the worst seasonal allergies of my life ( I did all but bathe in the stuff), as well as when I accidentally sliced my leg open right before sludging through manure on a cattle ranch. You can live through a lot with a little bit of prayer and essential oils!
