Lavender Essential Oil -- Healing Magic

Written by: Melora


Do you love working your way through automated phone systems, trying to reach a human being who, maybe, will fix your problem? Yeah, neither do I. But my husband, who is practically a saint most of the time, really gets upset when automated messages send him in endless circles. I used to hear him across the house, yelling furiously at some implacable robot voice that was stubbornly frustrating his efforts to reach a human being and resolve a bill.

All that was before our dog groomer told us about the magic of lavender essential oil! She uses lavender to calm anxious dogs, so I bought a little bottle for my husband to keep on his desk. Now when the automated recordings start to rattle his temper he reaches for the bottle of lavender, unscrews the lid, and inhales the calming fragrance. His tension dissolves, and he is able to persevere and, sometimes, persuade our robotic overlords to let him talk to an actual person.

Now, if you do a quick google search for the "health benefits of lavender" you'll see that soothing away the tensions of modern life is just the tip of the iceberg for this oil -- people have appreciated its qualities since at least the time of the ancient Egyptians, and modern studies recognize it for reducing headaches, anxiety, insomnia, and so on.

I put lavender in handmade soaps, bath bombs, body butters, and lotions because it smells lovely and it offers a bit of serenity each time the product is used. Our products are meant to add moments of joy to our customers' days, and nothing accomplishes that better than the magical scent of lavender.
