Cleaning and caring for cuts with Lavender

Katie Kastrup states “When ever I get a new cut I put lavender oil right on it. This allows for cleaning and a quick healing process, so I don’t have to worry about it getting any worse. I am a new mom, so I don’t always have time for myself! I keep a bottle of Young Living lavender oil in my diaper bag.”

However, keep in mind that not all lavenders oils are of the same quality. It is very important to use a therapeutic grade essential oil to maximize the benefits each oil brings.

Watch the video below and learn what makes up a therapeutic grade essential oil. This short video was actually televised on TV’s STudio 5 (Channel 5). Enjoy.

Here are some of the additional uses of lavender shared on this show:

  1. Get your beauty sleep with the help of lavender linen spray. Pour a few drops of Young Living lavender essential oil (4-8 drops per 4 oz. container) into a spray bottle and fill with distilled water. Mist your pillows and bed linens before going to sleep.
  2. Skin soothing at-home spa treatment–lavender bath fizzers. Mix 2 TBSP. baking soda, 2 tsp. citric acid, and 8-10 drops Young Living lavender essential oil in a small bowl. Spray 1-2 sprays of water into mixture. Stir and repeat sprays of water until mixture sticks together when compacted. Press small amounts into candy molds or into small balls. Allow to sit for 2 minutes, turn molds over and release fizzers onto wax paper. Let dry until hardened all the way through. Drop into warm water and enjoy a soothing soak in the tub!
  3. Pretty pedicure time with our exfoliating lavender foot scrub. Stir together 1/4 c. Dead sea salt or epsom salt, 1/4 c. Young Living V-6 Oil or unscented massage oil, and 3-6 drops Young Living lavender essential oil. Mix well; pour into container. Place a small amount in hand and scrub over feet that have soaked in warm water. Rinse off and apply lavender lotion. (Painting toenails a pretty pink is optional, but highly recommended!)
