Benefits of using lavender at home


Young Living Essential OIlsAs many of you may know, I am all about chemical-free organic living.  I cannot imagine not having Lavender in my home and use it frequently.  It is best known for its “feel good” and “calming” aroma, however, its benefits are endless.  With all the colds and flu going around, it is wonderful as a room deodorizer.  It may be of great benefit to massage gently on your throat in the case of a sore throat or on your forehead for fevers.  I have often done this for myself and for my children with great results.  I only use and recommend Young Living organic and pure essential oils. Following are some other suggested Benefits of using lavender at home.  To purchase lavender essential oil click this link.
