Day 2: Lavender Essential Oil
Today is day 3! It’s all about lavender! This is a scent that most people recognize and are familiar with, however, what most people do not know is the lavender in most cleaning supplies is a fragrant oil and not the type of oil we want in and on our bodies. Most fragrant essential oils are full of chemicals and solvents, which means it is not toxic free! We want to kick toxins to the curb and become healthy from the inside out!
Lavender essential oil is called the “swiss army knife” of all oils. If you aren’t sure which oil to use… always use Lavender! Lavender is a versatile oil, an adaptogen and is known as the universal oil. Lavender essential oil supports a healthy circulatory, respiratory, digestive, urinary and nervous system. Besides supporting many body systems, lavender oil supports healthy skin, is calming and balancing, and can help ease frustration and anger. Pets can experience the calming effects of lavender oil too.
