Benefits of lavender oil

Those specializing in aromatherapy recommend the relaxing benefits of lavender oil. For a stressed our bride, this has got to be good! Lavender oil has calming properties and many people find it helps them to sleep.

Lavender scented pillows

Lavender scented pillows are one of the most typical ways to get the benefits of lavender oil. A few drops on your pillow as you are going to bed at night means you will be inhaling the vapors as you rest. This should help you to relax and drift off into a peaceful sleep! You should always read the instructions on the bottle of lavender flower oil to avoid using too much. If in doubt, see a qualified aroma therapist for advice.

This is the essential oil we have been talking about already. It can be dropped onto your pillow or heated in a small amount of water to give off vapors into your room. Other uses for lavender flower oil are as ingredients in beauty products such as lavender soap or lotion.

Lavender eau de toilette

Lavender eau de toilette is a cheaper alternative to lavender flower oil, if you are simply looking for the scent of lavender. You could spray lavender eau de toilette as a perfume on yourself or onto your clothes. Do be careful when spraying near delicate fabrics though. Do NOT spray it on your wedding dress for example! Lavender eau de toilette does not have the same concentration of essential oil as pure lavender oil and so it does not have the same relaxing properties as the real thing.
