My Journey to Essential Oils: Diffusing Lavender

I have tried diffusing lavender and yes, it also has the soothing feeling albeit, the scent is more like for room fragrance than medicated (it’s like orange, aromaease, purification [all for another blog post] VS. panaway, oregano [another story for later] and that of peppermint’s) – now, I just realized my backlog.

So what does a lavender essential oil do?

  • Reduces anxiety and emotional stress
  • Protects against diabetes symptoms
  • Improves brain function
  • Helps to heal burns and wounds
  • Improves sleep
  • Restores skin complexion and reduce acne
  • Slows aging with powerful antioxidants
  • Relieves pain
  • Alleviates headaches

It did relieve me from pain all weekend although I will have to reiterate this, “I am in chronic pain but I prayed to the Lord this morning and asked Him to take every pain away, and what an instant relief! My faith has totally relieved me from it.”

I do believe in the therapeutic effects of the oils for real and I am faithful as well that God has given me channels to discover these essential oils because He knew that I would need to be relieved and at some point, I have to stop tolerating the pain. I mean, God paves a way for these discoveries just like how there are doctors and scientific studies, right?

I have also tried the oil to my son’s eczema as he was scratching all afternoon given that we are in Riyadh and sandstorm is like a staple to our daily lives. I mixed it with my chosen carrier oil, Virgin Avocado Oil, kind of pricey but worth it. I mean, we already invested on these essential oils — might as well spend a little on carrier oils, right? So I just rubbed it on my son’s affected areas and I promise, this is no joke — he stopped scratching after some time. It is a relief to a mom seeing her son at ease. I mean, this is an oil — fragrant and invisible, imagine how hard it is for me to convince my son to use calamine lotion. It is almost impossible.

I am just starting and I know that in time, I will discover more surprise from these oils. I am yet to write about Orange because I use it for my chronic ailment. I may have to wait for some time to see what I can testify on that.

For now, I have to check whether it is oregano or panaway… stay tuned!
