True Lavender

It is used to restore balance to the nervous system, limiting any emotional excess, improving our sleep, keeping melancholy under control, and removing apathy.
It helps promote cell regeneration, decongesting the skin and mucous membranes. It can be usefully applied in compresses in case of mycosis, eczema, psoriasis, and dandruff.
It is also used in massages against rheumatisms, sciatica, and muscle aches in general.
It is perfect to purify our breath and mouth.
It is a cure-all remedy and it can also be used undiluted.

Suggested uses:

  • Home diffuser: add between 3 and 6 drops to 100 ml of water
  • Steam inhalation: emulsify 3-4 drops of essential oil with coarse salt in 1 l of hot water. Inhale for 20 minutes, keeping your eyes and mouth closed
  • Bathtub: emulsify 8-10 drops of essential oil with coarse salt — or alternatively milk, cream, or honey — to add to the hot water (so that the oil doesn’t evaporate due to the heat)
  • Massages: we recommend to dilute 3-4 drops of essential oil in a tablespoon of carrier oil
  • Cosmetics:
    add 2-3 drops of essential oil to one tablespoon of natural moisturizer
    to make a shampoo, body wash or conditioner, we recommend to add 10 drops per 200 ml.
  • Food: we recommend 1-2 drops per 100 gr of food, to add after cooking (we suggest to always start with the lower dose and then increase it later, if preferred)

Caution: do not use in case of chronic diseases, pregnancy, or when breastfeeding.
If in doubt, please consult your doctor/naturopath.
