Lavender Essential Oil is The “Jack-Of-All-Trades”

Lavender

Lavender is my favorite of all oils. We use it here at the Hoggatt house daily. It was the first oil I ever purchased and we have gone through many bottles since! It was my “gateway” oil as Hubby calls it. Haha! But I have won him over with it also. I carry it in my purse and never leave home without it.

What is Lavender oil?

Lavender has a fresh, sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it. Lavender can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy. Therapeutic-grade lavender is highly regarded for skin and beauty. It may be used to soothe and cleanse common cuts, bruises, and skin irritations. ~ From The Young Living Product Catalog
