Lavender 101

If you're new to the concept of self-care, you may be wondering, "Where do I begin?"

A great place to start is by making sure you're getting enough sleep. Wikipedia reports that sleep deprivation may lead to depression, weight gain or loss, irritability, and other health problems.

Lavender essential oil is perfect for helping you get a peaceful night's sleep. Lavender is well documented as a stress reducer and sleep inducer. Its pleasant and calming aroma helps your body and mind relax. dōTERRA's CPTG lavender essential oil is 100% pure and natural, so it's safe and simple to use.
  1. Enjoy an aromatic bath with lavender essential oil. Add 6-12 drops of lavender oil and 1/2 cup bath salts to hot water in a tub. The salts will relax the muscles and the oil will soothe and nourish your skin.

  2. Diffuse lavender in your bedroom and play soft music to unwind before bedtime. Breathing the aroma will help everyone in your home relax and is a calming influence in any environment.

  3. Apply a drop or two of lavender essential oil on the back of the neck or massage on the bottom of the feet.

Be good to yourself with lavender essential oil. You'll sleep better and wake up refreshed and ready to enjoy a new day!
