Did you know that lavender is a symbol of purity and cleanliness? The scent of lavender is essentially used for space clearing and to invite positive energy into the house, promoting good health and happiness.
Other than Feng shui, there are actually tons of health benefits of lavender essential oils! Here are just some benefits for your health:
- Keep pests away: Lavender is a natural repellent against moths, mosquitoes and other insects. Mix lavender essential oil with water and put it into a spray bottle. Keep your home pest-free by spraying dark corners of the house where insects are likely to breed or hide. Protect your clothes from moths by hanging lavender sachets in your wardrobe.
- Calming effect: One of the most well-known properties of lavender is its ability to help with relaxation. Research done has shown the effect of lavender on improving one’s mood and reducing levels of anxiety. Try diffusing lavender essential oil in your living room and it will make you feel calm and relaxed after coming home from work – especially if you had a long and stressful day at work!
- Helps with Insomnia: Lavender essential oil can also help if you have trouble with sleeping. Drip some essential oil into your diffuser for a good night’s sleep or on your pillowcase.
- Fight headache: Lavender even has strong evidence to show that it can treat headaches and migraines! One study showed that after only fifteen minutes of inhaling lavender essential oil, its participants reported that their pain had reduced significantly. To enjoy the full benefit of lavender essential oil, use a nebulizer.
