Everyday Oils & Their Uses, Lavender:
Lavender essential oil has been used for centuries, and was arguably the most famous of the essential oils long before using them became popular. People have been sneaking this calming oil into products (and foods) for decades, hoping to conjure up a restful night’s sleep and a more mellow mood in general.
I’m especially excited to talk about the uses for this particular oil, because there are so many that you wouldn’t expect. It’s not just for potpourri anymore, though I won’t stop you from adding it to that too!
