How to use lavender essential oil (& giveaway)

Happy Friday luvs!

We made it through another week, how was yours? Doing anything fun for Halloween?  Don’t forget to get your Halloween workout in!

We realized we did not do an October favorites. We just kind of forget about it as we have been busy taking care of Madison.  And Michelle has been in experiment mode to find what her body and skin likes, so she had nothing really to share. And for me everything has been baby related. I will add them into our November favorites.

So in the mean time we wanted to give you something….

A bottle of one of our favorite essential oils LAVENDER!!

Lavender was one of the very first oils we got when we joined Doterra.

There are many ways we use lavender essential oil:

  • a few drops in our diffuser while we sleep
  • a drop on a blemish
  • a drop on a towel that we put in the dryer
  • a few drops mixed into homemade deorandt
  • a few drops into the bath to help itchy skin (Michelle has done)
  • Lori has rubbed it on Madison’s feet to help with calming and digestion
  • mixed it with geramiun and roman chamolie to make a nice air fresher

Lavender has an beautiful unmistakable aroma and has therapeutic properties, especially known for calming and relaxing.

Now it’s YOUR turn for a chance to win a FREE bottle of lavender.

This is not a sample bottle, but the 15 ml!!
