Lavender is one of the most universally great essential oils to have in your first aid kit. Why? Listen to these different stories about lavender with my family and friends…
~ My daughter wasn’t able to fall asleep one night, so I rubbed some lavender mixed with a carrier oil onto her. She was asleep within minutes. She now asks for lavender every night!
~ My son, also, had trouble sleeping one night. After rubbing lavender into his skin, I didn’t hear another peep from him until morning.
~ My dad mowed his backyard lawn the other day where there was a lot of weeds and overgrown brush area. He got stung twice. After trying to ignore the poison and feeling for a little while, he asked me what oil to use. I said, “When all else fails, use lavender!” He did and the pain IMMEDIATELY left and never returned!!
~ My mom watched as a mosquito bit her wrist the other evening. She smacked it off and thought to quickly rub lavender into it. The spot never welted up, got red, nor itched!
~ A friend diffuses lavender into her bedroom to help her insomnia. A bonus was that her husband has stopped snoring from the first night she diffused it!!!
There are plenty of other stories of the benefits of lavender. One testimonial I heard from someone else was that lavender, along with some other oils, like Peace & Calming essential oils blend, helped a little boy with ADHD calm down in a school setting by merely having the bottles opened on the desk behind him. He stopped squirming in his seat, got quiet, and raised his hand calmly to answer questions. This was repeated at least 4 weeks in a row, and everytime, it worked!
