If you believe in total health and beauty, you should take good care of your skin along with your other body parts and keep it healthy and glowing. As such there are many things that can increase health and beauty of our skin. But lavender oil is a bit lesser known yet highly effective skincare remedy. Earth’s Wisdom today wants to make readers familiar with the various benefits of lavender oil for skin.

Lavender oil is one of the essential oils and is extracted from lavender plant. Being an essential oil, it can be used through aromatherapy. Plus it can be applied to skin and even taken orally.

1. Treats Acne

Since lavender oil has an ability to kill bacteria, it can heal and prevent acne breakouts. When you apply it on your skin, it unclogs skin pores and decreases inflammation. To use it for acne, you have to dilute it in coconut oil or another carrier oil and apply it on the affected skin after washing the skin. If a pimple is particularly stubborn, mix one drop each of lavender oil and argan oil together and apply it on the pimple twice a day.

Lavender oil also acts best as a facial toner. You just have to add two drops of lavender oil to one teaspoon of witch hazel. Apply this mixture to your face with a cotton ball.

2. Anti-inflammatory Properties

Lavender oil can treat painful inflammations. It has numbing and pain-relieving effects that soothe the inflammation. It also has beta-caryophyliene which too is a natural anti-inflammatory agent.

Add one to three drops of lavender oil to 1-2 teaspoons of coconut or moringa oil and apply thrice a day to treat inflammation on a burn.

A lavender oil spray can be used effectively if you have a sunburn. Take a spray bottle and add 10-12 drops of lavender oil and jojoba oil, 2 tablespoons of distilled water and a quarter cup of aloe vera juice. Shake well and spray on the affected area 2-3 times daily till the burn heals.

3. Treats Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles can be partly caused by free radicals too. Lavender oil is packed with antioxidants and so, protects you from free radicals. Just dilute it with coconut oil and apply once or twice daily as a moisturizer.

4. Effective on Skin Lightening

Since lavender oil is anti-inflammatory, it can help in skin lightening. It can lessen discoloration and dark spots. It also helps reduce redness and blotchiness. It can also help in hyperpigmentation.

5. Treats Eczema

Eczema is characterized by dry, scaly and itchy skin, and can occur anywhere on the body. Since lavender oil has antifungal properties too, it can help reduce and prevent eczema.

Lavender oil can also treat psoriasis. It helps cleanse your skin and reduces irritation and redness.

Mix two drops each of lavender oil, coconut oil and tea tree oil together and use daily on affected skin.

6. Heals Wounds

Lavender oil may speed up healing of wounds like cuts, burns, scrapes and the likes. A 2016 study has shown that lavender oil has power to heal skin tissue.

For small wounds, add 3-4 drops of lavender oil to a few drops of tamanu oil or coconut oil and apply the mixture on the wound with a cotton ball. If the wound is healed already, lavender oil can help reduce scars too.

7. Acts Well as an Insect Repellent

You should also protect your skin from bugs. Lavender oil has a great property of repelling insects and it can even relieve the itching of skin due to insect bite. Several commercial mosquito repellent products make use of lavender oil.

Lavender oil can thus protect our skin from many problems. Why don’t you try it from today and enjoy the improved skin?
