Remember that we’re at the Oil City Farmer’s Market from 9-4 today, weather permitting! Stop by and see us!
Today we want to feature an oil we’ve talked about before here at Honest Aromas, which is easily one of the most popular essential oils: Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia)!
According to Pompeii Organics, lavender is very calming, which is why it’s so popular. What most people don’t know is that lavender is also great for the skin, regenerating the cells and fighting bacteria and infections.
Contributing to its calming properties, lavender is good for pain and swelling. It also cools the skin and soothes inflammation. It also boosts the mood, keeping depression at bay.
It’s important, as with any essential oil, to exercise proper caution with lavender. Lavender angustifolia is different from another variety, Lavender latifolia, or Spike Lavender. The two of them, although similar, have some very different properties. Make sure you know what you’re using!
If you have any questions, stop by our booth at the farmer’s market! As always, contact us with any questions or requests. We want to hear from you!
