One of the most recognised oils in the aromatherapy repertoire, Lavender has a huge amount of uses for the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual sides of us but has a particularly strong connection to the Heart.
Lots of people have a childhood memory that links to this versatile essential oil. Maybe Aunt Betty had gauze bags of dried Lavender dotted around her house or Nanna would put the scent near your pillow to help you sleep. The gentle nurturing vibe of Lavender stays in the memory banks long after the scent has wafted away. Helping us to feel safe and protected Lavender is fabulous for helping to release anxiety and tension.
It’s also a brilliant on skin and muscles due to the antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Great in a bath for you or the kids after a long day; not only will you emerge smelling great but your muscles will be relaxed, your skin refreshed and you’re likely to have the best night’s sleep you’ve had in ages!
My favourite aspect of Lavender is how it Energetically supports our Hearts. We can only take so much emotional bruising before we feel the need to protect ourselves from Energy, conversations, people that we perceive as ‘negative’. In forming that protection, we can unintentionally block the good things out too. Lavender can give you the breathing space to relax, lift your head and look for the bright and shiny parts of life again.
There are so many gorgeous properties to Lavender that it is often called for to be part of the individualised blend used in the eye mask I use for my clients during Healings. Gentle, comforting support wafts through as they experience the deep sense of release that comes with their own unique Psychic Healing.
Given the amazing array of issues that Lavender can assist with I highly recommend it for any “essential oil tool kit”!
