Calm and Stress
Lavender is an oil that has been used for millennia and noted for its cleaning and healthful properties. Through modern scientific testing its time proven properties have been confirmed. It is one of the most popular and used of the essential oils. There are multiple types of Lavender (from different plants) so it is important to have lavandula angustifolia. This specie is more refined and therefore more expensive but has much preferred qualities to use for personal health conditions. The preferred Lavender is steam distilled from the flowering tops of plants with some of the finest quality from Europe. DōTerra Lavender is steam distilled from the flowering tops of plants from France (fine high altitude) and Bulgaria (super high altitude). These are joined together in equal ratios.
Because of the gentle properties of Lavender it can be applied topically on even some of the most sensitive of skin. Topical application to burns, minor cuts, and bruises almost always produces successful results. At the same time the aroma is very soothing. A benefit to applying the oil topically to a cut or burn on a child is to let them smell the aroma on the hands as it is applied and it will have a marvelous calming effect. By using a diffuser this same soothing aroma can help with stress or other mental strain with adults and children. Again, because of the versatility of Lavender oil, it can be used equally well topically, diffused, or in baths.
