    • What is your idea of fun? How can you include more "fun time" in your life?
    • If you woke up tomorrow and everything was perfect, what would different in your life? Who would be there? Where would you be? What would you be doing?

    Diffuse some lavender essential oil while contemplating these questions. Allow balance to come into your life for 2010.

    Lavender: Bliss Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil Of the Month


    Lavender essential oil is one of the most used and often adulterated essential oils in the world!

    I had a client who told me that she was allergic to lavender essential oil and she breaks out in a rash. We decided to do a skin test (one drop of oil on the inside of the arm) and guess what? She was not allergic to the lavender essential oil I use. This is because I know and trust my brand of oils.

    I also hear people say "Essential oils don't work." I believe this is about knowing and trusting where your oil comes from. Ask the questions to find out if they grown their own plants, do they use pesticides, chemicals, cut or adulterate the oils. Make sure you are 100% satisfied your oils are safe. If not find one that is!

    The Essential Oils Desk Reference states that Lavender is "calming, relaxing and balancing, both physically and emotionally."

    I find when everything seems overwhelming, I place one drop of Lavender under my nose or over the chest, or anywhere else where I can smell the oil for a balancing effect.

    Botanical Name:

    Lavandula angustifolia

    (Please note: If you lavender contains Lavandula x hybrida it has been adulterated with Lavandin--a great antiseptic but also a skin irritant. It may also be extended with synthetic linalool and linalyl acetate--so make sure you know and trust your quality of essential oil.)


    None known.


    Carolyn L. Mein's Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils uses lavender for the following emotions:

    • Abandonment
    • Criticism
    • Fear of Unfoldment

    Lavender is known for its tissue regeneration properties and French scientist Rene Gattefosse used lavender essential oil (by accident) to speed wound healing after he burned his arm in a laboratory accident.

    It is also one of my favourite essential oils for wrinkles. A drop or two of lavender at night time, just before bed, on the face--so relaxing and working on the wrinkles at the same time!

    Lavender is a great allrounder and if you need a substitute oil it will usually do the trick.

    Make sure you always have some on hand in the first aid kit for bites, cuts, stings and rashes. So beautiful in so many ways.

    It is a middle note so it gives good depth to a perfume blend if you want to make a blend with it. Try it with sandalwood and orange :)

    Well we have come to the end of this edition of Essential Bliss. I hope you have enjoyed reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it...
