We include lavender oil in our BirthBoxes because it’s great to help your pregnant-self sleep, it’s THE calming smell and massage during labour and helps heal c-section scar tissue after, but recently we learnt it’s useful for a whole lot more as well. Now a toddler bag / handbag staple… ⭐️Use on insect bites and stings to stop itching and reduce swelling. ⭐️Put on minor burns like a tea spill, it works wonders apparently!
⭐️Treat cuts with drops to stop bleeding, clean the wound and kill bacteria.
⭐️Mix with vegetable oil (coconut, sesame etc) to treat eczema and dermatitis.
⭐️Treat travel sickness - put a drop on tongue, behind the ears or around the navel.
⭐️Alleviate hayfever by rubbing it in your hands & smelling.
⭐️Soothe chapped lips by rubbing lavender drops on them.
⭐️Get rid of dandruff by putting it into your shampoo. AMAZING stuff!!! #mybirthbox #lavender #lavenderoil #aromatherapy #goodtoknow #toddlerlife #pregnancy #birth
