Lavender

The many uses of Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender is one of those essential oils that has so many uses, that I could just sit all day perusing pinterest and find new “recipes” and blends to share.

One use that immediately caught my eye (get it? ha!) was this one:

(Disclaimer: Now, I don’t condone (and neither do essential oil companies) putting essential oils directly in your eyes or ears, however, mixing ONE drop into your mascara is a form of diluting it. Do not put this directly in your eyes!)

Ok, with that disclaimer out of the way, HOW COOL IS THIS?

Instead of spending $$ on lash extensions or expensive lash enhancing serums, use something natural on your lashes to help them gain volume and length.

Now, your mileage may vary depending on what type of mascara you use, so try a few. Preferably a natural, organic type, but really, any should do.

Plus, Lavender just smells wonderful and is a great oil to have on hand anyway. We go through a bottle a month because I use it for:

  • diffusing for its calming effect
  • calming my cats down (place a drop on paw pads) when they’re anxious
  • helping ease sunburn
  • an allergy blend for my husband (also consists of Lemon, Peppermint & Eucalyptus)
  • helping digestion
  • any skin issue that comes up (rash, cut, bruise)

I could go on, but you get it. Lavender is the bomb and you need it yesterday.
