Lavender for Skin & Mind
Who dosen’t love Lavender? 💜🌿 In the new Lip Love we added Lavender together with Chamomile, both for its calming effects and for the benefits it brings to our skin.
Lavender has long been enjoyed in its oil form for its scent and healing effects. Victorian ladies loved using lavender oil as perfumes, and it was even used in the 1st World War as antiseptics. Today, we celebrate lavender oil as a means to fight headaches and reduce stress. Lavender oil isn’t just soothing for your mind, it offers the same benefits for your skin. Use lavender oil for skin to help reduce redness, blotchy patches, and acne scarring. Lavender oil’s anti-inflammatory properties make it great for soothing and healing skin that’s irritated or reddened from the sun, insect bites, or bacteria. Lavender oil for skin also works rejuvenating as it is a potent source of antioxidants and other beneficial phytochemicals that fight free radical damage – caused by environmental stressors like the sun and pollution. That means the antioxidants in lavender oil can help protect against wrinkles, fine lines, and dark age spots.
