LAVENDER
Lavandula Angustifolia

There has been a steady supply of Lavender in my house hold for many years. It is perfect for the home first aid kit in both essential oil and dried flower form. The essential oil can be applied directly to the skin to relieve almost any pain. Massage the oil onto rheumatic joints, forehead or temples for migraines, shingles sores or anywhere you might be feeling pain. When combined with Tea Tree, Lavender proves to relieve ear infections and earache. Just place a few drops of Lavender oil and one to two drops of Tea Tree oil onto a cotton ball and plug it into the infected ear. For my daughter, I even use Lavender oil to help with skin rashes and bug bites. The dried flowers can be gargled for inflamed sore throat, or can be brewed into a tea. Lavender tincture is used for many ailments such as flu, cough, asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory problems. Lavender is key for relieving stress, worry and anxiety. Its calming qualities soothe the body and mind and has even been known to have mood enhancing properties. For sleeping troubles, place a few drops of Lavender oil into an oil burner or into a warm bath, or make a pillow out of the dried flowers, or even take a teaspoon of tincture before bed. It even combines well with Passion Flower.
