Essential Oils Week – Lavender

Next up – lavender. Lavender, like lemon, is a very commonly used oil, and one of the first oils I used when I started. It’s another very versatile oil that everyone should have when they get started.

If you’re jumping in on day 2, don’t forget to read the post on Essential Oils 101 to learn the basics.

My goal with the challenges at the end is to help you get creative! Many times, we get stuck in ruts, and forget that these oils have many uses. Be sure to follow along here this week and on Instagram by using the #lovingessentialoils.
