New York Biology Lavender Essential Oil

I promised you all that I'd be doing a series on New York Biology's essential oils. Number 3 in the series is their LAVENDER oil. Lavender is one of the most popular essential oils on the market, and with good reason!

New York  Biology's Lavender oil (which can be purchased on Amazon) is of the Kashmir variety, and is from India. The aroma for this oil is definitely potent. I could smell the oil faintly through the bag, and even more so when I actually OPENED the bag that it was delivered in. This is not to say that the smell is overpowering! The aroma is actually quite pleasant!

Part of the reason why Lavender essential oil is so popular is because it has many benefits. The benefits for Lavender oil include both, topical use as well as aromatherapy benefits. Let's start with the aromatherapy benefits (my favorite).

Aromatherapy Benefits of Lavender Essential Oil:

  • Helps to induce sleep, and increases sleep regularity
  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Can help with respiratory issues like sinus congestion, cough, bronchitis, and even whooping cough
  • Improves blood circulation, and helps to lower blood pressure

Topical Uses for Lavender Essential Oil:

  • Can help promote hair growth when regularly rubbed into the scalp
  • Can be used as a lice treatment
  • Natural bug repellent (Goodbye, mosquitoes!!)
  • Reduces irritation and inflammation from bug bites
  • Can help with pain relief

There are a lot of other ways to use Lavender oil that aren't listed here. It's no wonder why it's one of the most popular essential oils on the market! It's definitely a staple in my oil collection. Again, this particular Lavender oil can be purchased on Amazon.

Out of curiosity, what are some of your favorite uses for Lavender oil?? I'd love some fresh ideas!

Don't forget to stay tuned! The next oil I'll be discussing in this series is New York Biology's Bergamot oil!
