Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Michele

While working on my son’s Eagle Scout project, I got into some type of plant that caused a horrible reaction and rash. I know that I am allergic to poison ivy, but this rash was like nothing I had ever had before. I tried an “herbal” product from the local drugstore with no relief. I tolerated the itch as long as I could and finally went to the doctor. I received a steroid shot and oral steroids as well as a topical cream. Believe me, this is not my normal line of defense. I caved to traditional medicine only because I could not sleep through the night. None of these provided me the least amount of relief and I could tell the rash was not improving. I have a couple of essential oils in my home. We use Oregano oil for athlete’s foot, and I had some lavender oil. I did a little reading and found that people had used it for relief from the itch and sting of insect bites so I decided I had nothing to lose. I applied pure Lavender oil directly to the rash and within seconds had complete relief from an torturous itch that had not plagued me for almost two weeks! Needless to say, my little bottle went with me everywhere after that. I hope anyone who suffers from plant allergies will read this and keep some lavender oil on hand!

Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Megan

Have you ever been on a long flight across the country and there is a baby who won’t stop shrieking? That is precisely what happened to me when I was headed to Portland last month. I tried to tune out the horrendous crying but the tension on the plane was growing, so I decided to grab my Lavender oil (calming, anti-anxiety) and head back to see if the mom was open to trying it. Upon approaching little 14-month-old Grace, I saw that she was bright red, kicking, screaming, and in full on temper-tantrum mode. Her poor mom had three other kids with her and looked completely frazzled. I asked if the baby had any allergies and the mom said “no,” so I explained that I had some organic, pure, high-quality Lavender oil that might help her calm down. The mom said “yes, I’ll try anything!” I put the oil on Grace’s feet and then let her inhale the scent and rubbed a bit on her chest. Her mom thanked me and then I walked to the rear of the plane to use the restroom while I was up. It took about 5 minutes to get through the line, but as I walked back to my seat I realized that it was QUIET! No more Grace screaming!! Furthermore, as I walked by the mom and that area of the plane, I received a round of applause from the nearby passengers because little Grace had fallen asleep. Now that is the awesome power of natural, healing plant-based medicine for everyday situations.

Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Tammy

I have experienced (some may say suffer) post-partum and anti-partum depression/mood disorders several times. The moment I thought I might be pregnant with my most recent child I began my quest for a natural solution to this disorder. I had heard that essential oils can be a powerful tool for improving emotional well-being. I wanted to find out more so I searched the internet for “essential oils for postpartum depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder”. From that search I learned that Lavender essential oil, when smelled, can greatly boost one’s emotional well-being.

I like to know a little about how and why things work the way they do – especially something as seemingly simple and “unconventional” as essential oils. So, I did further research. I found that on emotional level Lavender oil is known as the “oil of communication”. It helps calm insecurities while relieving negative emotions such as feelings of being unlovable and unimportant. Lavender helps in giving one the courage to communicate their innermost thoughts and feelings.

Something to note about using essentials aromatically……We have what is called a limbic systemlimbic system which is the part of our brain that houses our emotions and memories. When an essential oil is inhaled those aromatic molecules go straight into the limbic system thus, producing an immediate emotional response. That is why smelling Lavender is effective in elevating negative mood states; it produces an immediate and positive emotional response.

With this new-found knowledge I used Lavender oil throughout the pregnancy. I’ll tell you, in struggling from post-partum depression I am grateful for a natural tool to help me communicate and feel loved – because isn’t that at least a part of what most experience when they are depressed? Feelings of being unloved and struggling with the inability to communicate those feelings – either out of fear or apathy?

Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Tess

My niece got pink eye and was ready to go to urgent care to get some meds for it. I told her she could use my Lavender and Melaleuca essential oils. She put some of each on her eye sockets right under each eye for three days, and the pink eye disappeared. So much for urgent care and spending money on prescription drugs!

Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Kelly

My sweet little old neighbor rips her skin so easily and doesn’t heal quickly at all. I put Lavender on a band-aid and she healed so quickly, that she bought her own bottle right away.
I use Lavender to help my allergies and for skin care after shaving too.
We went camping with friends and after it was dark were hanging out by the camp fire. My adult friend yelled out in pain because something had climbed up her pants and bit her. My husband and I both jumped up. I went to grab my Lavender and he grabbed his first aid kit. I won and put Lavender on before he could find his ointment. I reapplied 5 minutes later and she was completely fine.
Lastly, two of my boys were stung by bees on their necks a week apart from each other and were fine after one application of Lavender.
Lavender is a staple in our home.

Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Tess

A friend of mine has had trouble sleeping through the night. She often wakes up and can’t get back to sleep. In the morning she doesn’t feel rested. I suggested she try Lavender Oil. She started using it on the bottom of her feet every night and told me that she now sleeps much better. If she wakes up, she goes back to sleep and she feels rested in the morning.

Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Tess

I gave out some samples at a women’s retreat in April, and one woman took a sample of Lavender Oil. The next day she told me that she had a rash on her face the night before and after she put the Lavender Oil on it, it disappeared. She told me how great it was and how it helped her to have a good weekend.

Lavender Oil – A Healing Story by Stacy

I was out in the sun for too long one day and ended up with a painful sunburn. I mixed Lavender Oil with coconut oil and rubbed it on my sunburn before bed. The following morning my sunburn was totally healed! Incredible!
