How lavender oil benefits the skin
Lavender is one of the few essential oils that’s gentle enough to be applied directly to the skin, and yet it offers so much strength as a healing plant.
Here are just some of the everyday ways lavender oil benefits the skin:
- Bug bites
- Blemishes, including those enormous out-of-nowhere hormonal breakouts
- Itchy scalp
What lavender does so well for skin issues like these is quickly reduce the swelling and the redness, almost like magic. Lavender also has an antibacterial affect, making it a triple threat against the ‘maskne’ so many women are struggling with right now.
Because it’s non-comedogenic, it also won’t clog your pores, which is why it’s such a brilliant ingredient for achieving clarity and that uber-clean feeling.
For the skin beyond the face, lavender offers anti-itch properties, gently soothing the skin and stopping you from scratching at an itchy scalp or patches of eczema.

How lavender can soothe the mind
One of the most common lavender uses and benefits is its ability to help us feel calm. If you’re looking for natural ways to help improve your mood or headaches, or wash away the day so you can enjoy a good night’s sleep, lavender oil aromatherapy does wonders.

Other lavender oil uses and benefits
It won’t be long before we’re all enjoying summer nights on the patio, and that means uninvited guests: mosquitoes. Move your diffuser to your deck and voilá, you have a bug repellent that’s non-toxic and effective.
Lavender oil on its own can be on the potent side. If you want to enjoy the benefits of lavender oil but you want to keep the scent a little lighter, try lavender water. Collected during the distillation process of lavender oil, lavender water is more subtle but equally helpful.
