Why you should use lavender essential oil for skin and hair
Lavender… we have heard so many things about this herb that it seems there is nothing left to say. But do you know all the benefits of this lovely herb? We strongly believe it’s never too late to learn new things so we specially wrote this article for you, nature lover!
To satisfy your curiosity, I will start with things that you probably had no idea about this miracle herb. For example, did you know that lavender derives its name from the Latin ‘lavare’ meaning ‘to wash”? Furthermore, lavender and mint are both members of the Mint family. No matter what kind of species it belongs to, I would rather choose lavender than any other chemical product.
Benefits of lavender oil
It reduces acne
You have tried a hundred types of acne-fighting products and they made your breakouts worse? What about trying an organic, natural cure? Without side effects, lavender oil offers your skin nutrients and a lot of other benefits. Lavender essential oil calms the inflammation caused by acne. All you have to do is apply a drop on a fingertip and then massage the affected areas. You will notice that after a constant application, the scars will blur, and the skin will feel cleaner without being sweaty.
Calms and cleanses the skin
If you have read before about the properties of lavender, you probably know about the skin calming and anti-inflammatory effects. Due to its strong antioxidant content, your skin will be hydrated and fed with the nutrients it needs, and the toxins stored by the pores will be already gone. For this reason, you will no longer be experiencing excess sebum. For healthy skin, you can use lavender oil combined with coconut oil to have perfectly healthy skin, full of luminosity and firmness.
You can make your own organic toner
A facial toner is a liquid solution which contains ingredients that combat various problems such as acne, clogged pores or lack of moisture. In addition, it can also be used to remove makeup. As you probably know, commercially available toners contain toxic substances for the skin, which can cause irritation or adverse effects. For this reason, I want to teach you how to make your own organic toner with lavender flavor.
It is a simple recipe that can be done by anyone. Add in a spray bottle between ten and twenty drops of Mayie lavender essential oil, two drops of rosehip oil and a lavender floral water bottle. Mix the composition and voilà, the magic recipe is ready! You can spray the mixture on your skin at least twice a day.
