LAVENDER EO

 

Lavender oil is one of the mildest oils on Earth, and one of only two essential oils suitable for use on newborn skin.  The oil’s antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties benefit mild cases of eczema (atopic dermatitis), as well as create a sense of stability for balanced skin. Lavender oil has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for skin conditions, as it brings circulation to skin cells that suffer from irritants and stress.  Lavender oil can provide a broader spectrum of relief to eczema sufferers. Unlike the common antibiotic and steroid creams that can be addictive for people with eczema, lavender oil addresses the skin from the inside out.  It is especially rich in aromatic molecules called esters, which have a calming, destressing effect.  Lavender oil’s treatment of stress is especially vital as stress is one of the primary causes of eczema skin flare-ups.
