Top 5 oils - #2

If you got a notification that Tea Tree was #2......well......that was wrong since it was #4...;-)


Lavender is one of the most popular essential oils long loved for its calming, soothing fragrance.  It is a key ingredient to many essential oil blends, including Stress Away, Tranquil, RutaVaLa, Forgiveness and Harmony.  When diffused, Lavender adds a clean, fresh scent to any room and is a relaxing addition to baths and body care products.

Have you ever purchased a product advertising the Lavender scent?  I had over the years and I really hated them all.  I kept them far, far away.  Then, when I had a chance to try the Lavender essential oil, I was pleasantly surprised.  It was MUCH different.  Why?  Well, I'm glad you asked!  Pure Therapeutic Essential Oils are much different than Fragrance grade essential oils.  The former are from the first distillation and the later for later distillations that are overly processed drawing out properties from the plant that aren't as desirable.  As someone who has always been proned with headaches with fragrances (usually chemical ones), having something like YL essential oils has been a breathe of fresh aromatic air!

Use Lavender Oil this way:

  • Diffuse for a comforting and calming scent
  • Unwind by adding a few drops to a nighttime bath
  • Diffuse for a fresh, clean scent and to eliminate odors.

It is one of the essential oils that is mild  for use on children too!  My granddaughter asks for it for all her boo boos!
