HOW TO APPLY:
For allergies: Diffuse several drops (I usually combine with Lemon and Peppermint) To stop my sneezing almost immediately, I put one drop in the palm of my hand, then dip my finger in the Lavender and swipe some oil on the inside of my cheeks and inside my nostrils. It doesn’t taste great, but the taste doesn’t stay too long and it has worked every time for me.
For cuts/scrapes/bug bites: Apply directly to area. You can dilute it with a carrier oil. I also have a bottle of Lavender with a roller ball top for easy application.
Facial care: I put one drop in my palm and then apply it all over my face before bed. Alain does this also. We have seen an improvement in skin health.
For sleep: I often diffuse Lavender in Maya’s room at night. We have this diffuser for Maya’s room (Aroma Ready Oil Humidifying and Ultrasonic Diffuser). I love it because it doesn’t have a light and it has to option to run constantly or in 15 seconds on, 15 seconds off intervals. When filled, it will run in her room all night. We also apply it to our feet (Usually big toe) to help those nights that we just can’t get to sleep.
To dilute for Maya, I put a small amount of coconut oil in my palm and then drop one or two drops on top of the coconut oil. Rub palm on her chest and back. I don’t usually dilute Lavender for her (or any of us), but when you are first starting, it is good to dilute to learn how your body will respond.
