Lavender Essential Oil

When I first started using essential oils, I was quite sensitive to their smells. I had never been a fan of Lavender essential oil. I had pretty much avoided it as a single oil.

CPTG

A Lavender essential oil that is CPTG or Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade “should” be consumable”. However DO NOT CONSUME any essential oil if your bottle of essential oils say, ” NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION” or “NOT FOR INTERNAL USE”. Use common sense. The warning is there for a reason, heed it.

Certain essential oils are GRAS, Generally Regarded As Safe for consumption. doTERRA will label oils that are safe for consumption with the FDA food label.

Try it for occasional mild eye irritation due to environmental factors in the air. Put a small amount of diluted Lavender around the orbits of the eye. I use it diluted especially because around and near the eyes is ver delicate and sensitive. In fact always dilute until you know just how you will react to an essential oil. Just like you may have sensitivities to specific foods, the same may be true for oils. Usually there is no problem, but we are all different so until you know how Lavender affects your skin dilute and do a little patch test.

There are so many more uses for Lavender than I can’t even begin to present them all here in this little post. We use it so often in our home I even have a backup bottle because we don’t like being without.
