Properties

The lavender officinalis essential oil is known for its versatility (not by chance, together with the Tea tree oil, it is the most used essential oil) and above all for its delicacy. It is one of the very few essential oils that can also be used pure on the skin and also on the skin of newborns and pregnant mothers (but never in the first 3 months of pregnancy and should never be applied on the belly).

What is it used for?

Lavender essential oil is an excellent balancing product for the nervous system, so it is useful both for people who are anxious and with problems of insomnia, and for those suffering from depression. Vaporized, or applied on the forehead (not pure, but mixing it with vegetable oils), it is excellent for sedating migraines.

It is also a product for beauty, as it stimulates cell renewal and has antioxidant properties. Hence, it is excellent against wrinkles.

It rebalances the production of sebum and is therefore suitable for both too dry and too fat skin. In case of insect bites (wasps, hornets, mosquitoes, etc.), it alleviates pain and, above all, if applied a few minutes after the incident, it counteracts the activity of the poison.

It helps to relax contracted muscles and has an antispasmodic action, very useful for example to reduce pain due to abdominal cramps, or to painful periods.

It has antifungal properties, so it is very effective against fungi of both skin and nails.

Used internally the lavender officinalis essential oil is an excellent digestive and helps eliminate intestinal worms (vermifuge properties).

These are the main applications of lavender officinalis essential oil:

  • Anxiety and insomnia: hot baths, or a few drops in the air diffuser, or inhaling a tissue to which a drop of essential oil has been added;
  • Depression: vaporize the essential oil in the room, adding water and a few drops of essential oil into the air diffuser, or breathing a tissue to which a drop of essential oil has been added;
  • Migraines: by vaporization, or by mixing the essential oil with a vegetable oil to massage the temples;
  • Acne, too dry or too greasy skin: the essential oil mixed with a vegetable oil is used to massage the face, or other areas of the body. You can also add 1-2 drops to produce beauty masks based on clay, or other natural products;
  • Dermatitis, eczema, skin irritations: mix a few drops of essential oil with a vegetable oil and use for massages on the area of ​​irritated skin;
  • Mycosis of skin and nails: mix a few drops of essential oil with a vegetable oil and use for massages on the skin or nails affected by mycosis;
  • Contractures, muscle pain: mix a few drops of essential oil with a vegetable oil and use for massages on the area where the muscles are contracted and painful;
  • Abdominal and menstrual pains: mix a few drops of essential oil with a vegetable oil and use for massages in the painful area;
  • Cicatrizing and anti-inflammatory: mix a few drops of essential oil with a vegetable oil and use for massages in the burn area;
  • Against the moths: pour 4 drops of lavender essential oil on a piece of wood and place it inside the closet. The linen will be impregnated with a very good smell of lavender and the moths will stay away from it.
  • Digestive and vermifuge: used internally;
  • Insect bites: for pure external use or diluted in vegetable oils.

Use Advice

1. Applications on the skin through massages

The lavender officinalis essential oil is one of the few essential oils which can also be used pure on the skin. However, used with some consistency tends to dry the epidermis, so it is always better to combine it with a fatty substance, such as vegetable oils (olive oil, sunflower oil, almonds, etc.), or with macerated oils, or creams.

Mixed with vegetable oil (or with a cream) the recommended dilution is:

  • for children: 4 drops of essential oil for a tablespoon of vegetable oil/cream;
  • for adults: 6 drops of essential oil for a tablespoon of vegetable oil/cream.

2. Internal use (ingestion)

The lavender officinalis essential oil from Erbe di Mauro is certified for food use, so it can also be ingested. You can add a drop to a lump of sugar, or a teaspoon of honey, or in water, or in fruit juices. Dosages should never exceed 2-3 drops at a time.

NB: Essential oils for internal use can interfere with many drugs. In this case, always consult an expert before ingestion.

3. Other applications

  • Air diffusion in the environment: from 6 to 10 drops to be added to the water in air diffuser/vaporizer for the environment, or in the pan of the radiator to purify the air, promote breathing and fight unpleasant odors.
  • Inhalation with the handkerchief: add a drop of essential oil to a handkerchief. Breathe in several times during the day.
  • Hot baths: add a tablespoon of baking soda * (or vegetable oil, or milk) to the hot water of the bath, to which 10 drops of essential oil have been added. For a more effective action, after the bath it is advisable to dry well, without rinsing.
  • Footbath: soak your feet (up to the ankles) in a container full of warm water to which a teaspoon of baking soda * (or vegetable oil, or milk), mixed with 4-6 drops of essential oil has been added. Soak for about 15-20 minutes.
  • In the washing machine: add 10-15 drops (depending on the intensity of the desired perfume) directly in the bowl, mixed with detergent, or with a bit of bicarbonate. It helps for a good cleaning of the fabrics giving the clothes a pleasant clean smell.

* Essential oils are not soluble in water; while bicarbonate, or alternatively fatty substances (such as vegetable oils, or milk) have indeed the purpose of making them soluble in water.

Expiration

Expiry: after 5 years, if stored well in the dark, away from sources of heat.

Contraindications

The lavender officinalis essential oil is contraindicated to pregnant and breastfeeding women, to children under 3 and to those allergic to bitter orange.

The internal use is also not recommended in the presence of gastrointestinal inflammation because it can give rise to phenomena of intolerance to the digestive system.

Warnings

Never use pure on the skin or on the mucous membranes. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a dry place, away from direct sunlight and sources of heat.

All essential oils naturally contain potentially allergenic molecules such as cinnamaldehyde, citronellol, eugenol, citrus, coumarin, limonene, linalool, geraniol, etc. which can, therefore, trigger allergic reactions. For this reason, we recommend testing them before use, applying 1 drop dissolved in 30 ml of olive oil (or other vegetable oil) on the skin of the forearm and wait 48 hours for the possible occurrence of allergies.
