Here our most loved benefits of diffusing lavender essential oil.

Improves sleep quality

Lavender essential oil is famous for its calming effect on the mind. Its sedative properties make it one of the best essential oils to promote better sleep and can even prevent insomnia when diffused as part of your evening routine.

You can also take this moment to pair it with a meditation practice and reflect on the day.  Acknowledge anything that could interfere with your sleep, and allow the soothing scent to soften the mind and create a positive atmosphere.

Our MĀ Secret: Diffuse fifteen drops of Lavender essential oil. Breathe in deeply for four. Pause for four and breathe out slowly counting to four again. Close your eyes and let the mind rest.

Fight off colds and flu naturally

The antibacterial properties of Lavender essential oil make it a fundamental natural ingredient to different remedies. When diffused, its calming power acts on the respiratory system allowing you to breathe a bit better as it loosens mucus and congestions. 

You can also simply add a few drops of Lavender essential to a bowl of hot water and breathe in the sweet aroma with a towel over your head to instantly feel your breathing getting lighter.

Reduces headaches

The relaxing properties of Lavender essential oil can also help relieve headaches and migraines. As it reduces tensions and alleviates stress, one of the primary reasons for headaches, diffusing Lavender essential oil creates a better space for the mind and slowly reduces the pain.

Our MĀ Secret: Add three drops of Lavender essential oil to a bowl of boiling water. Gently breathe in the light aroma for a few minutes. Let the floral scent clear your mind and let go of any pain.

Keeps bugs at bay

The natural chemical composition of Lavender essential oil makes it a perfect organic insect repellent. Linalool and camphor, two powerful compounds act as natural barriers which keep mosquitos, moths, flies and wasps away. 

You can simply diffuse essential oil indoors to fill the environment with the delicate scent which is much more pleasant to us than any bugs. If you are planning a dinner outside in summer, you can also place an oil warmer close to the table to make sure none of your guests will leave with mosquito bites.

Lessen Hayfever and allergies

The anti-inflammatory benefits of Lavender essential oil go beyond curing small wounds and cuts. When diffused they also help prevent allergic inflammations which can be caused by hayfever and the enlargement of mucous cells, responsible for blocked nose and tightness around the chest.  

As it inhibits anxiety, it also helps the mind remain calm when the body gets triggered by allergies and may become more agitated.

Our MĀ Secret: Diffuse in our Ceramic Diffuser ten drops of Lavender essential oils daily at the start of the spring. Allow the body to experience the light and floral scent and any tightness to gently go away.
