Young Living Essential Oils | Guest Post and #Giveaway from The Encouraging Home

Today I’m participating in the Ultimate Blog Swap. You’ll find me posting over at The Simple Homemaker about a healthy, simple, and tasteful recipe; and I’m excited to welcome Mary from The Encouraging Home to Coping with Frugality:

Essential oils are a wonderful addition to your family’s health cabinet. One of my favorites and one that no home should be without is Lavender. Lavender is the most versatile of all essential oils and is known as the “universal oil“.

Lavender is noted for its relaxing effects. It may be used to cleanse cuts, bruises and skin irritations. The fragrance is calming, relaxing and balancing – physically and emotionally. Lavender is grown and distilled at Young Living Farms. Great care is taken and high standards are met to ensure the therapeutic, medicinal grade of all Young Living Oils.

Lavender oil can diffused or inhaled directly for aromatherapy. Apply topically to skin irritations, cuts, or wherever desired. Add to food or rice milk as a dietary supplement~Only recommended if using Young Living Oils.

A few of the many uses for Lavender:

  • Inhale to relax mind and body
  • Diffuse
  • Rub on pillow to aid in restful sleep
  • Massage on feet to help with relaxation
  • Add a few drops to a warm bath
  • Put a few drops to soothe a minor burn
  • Put a drop or two on a cut or scrape to cleanse the area and speed healing
  • Use on dry skin and minor rashes
  • Use on a sunburn
  • Diffuse for seasonal allergies
  • Put a drop on an insect bite or bee sting
  • Add a few drops to your moisturizer or put on face or wrinkles
  • Add a few drops to your vacuum to deodorize the house
  • Add a few drops to a damp washcloth and put in dryer
  • Place a few drops on a cotton ball and place in drawers or closet
