How to use

 

Skin & Hair
Face: Apply 1 drop to skin blemishes or wounds. Gentle face massage can be used to help fight acne and stimulate the lymphatic system. Add 1 drop to 5ml/0.17fl.oz carrier oil. Try to direct massage stroke from the midline towards the outer edge of your jaw to pro- mote lymphatic drainage.
Spot treatment: Apply 1 drop of essential oil to a blemish daily until it heals. 


Body
Hand or foot bath: add 2 drops of essential oil to a bowl of water. For inflammation consider using cold/room temperature water. For aches and tight muscles use warm/hot water. 
Steam treatment (face and respiratory system): add 2 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming hot water.
Compress: to a bowl of water add 2 drops of essential oil. For treating inflammation or to cool down use cold to room temperature water, for aching tight muscles use warm to hot water. Agitate a face washer in the water, wring out excess moisture and apply washer to the affected area, repeat two or three times as the compress cools down or warms up.


Wellbeing:
Massage: use a 2.5% dilution; 50 drops per 100ml/3.38fl.oz carrier oil. Face massage blend, 1 drop of oil to 5ml/0.17fl.oz carrier oil.
Bath: add up to 5 drops, in a dispersant such as oil, to the bath.

Considerations:
Lavender is considered safe to use during pregnancy, illness, for young children and is non-sensitising to the skin. Use sparingly to encourage sleep, 1 drop on the pillow should be enough. Too much lavender can have the opposite effect and become stimulating.
