I try to find and publish as many things as possible that are related to lavender oil on this blog since I know that it is most of your favorite herb and essential oil. Today I have a simple, beautiful looking and delightful smelling Lavender Body Butter recipe for you.
Lavender is much more than just pretty & calming. It is one of the most powerful remedies in the plant world, offering both physical and emotional relief for problems as varied as burns, migraines, insomnia, insect bites, skin problems, infections, stress and nervous tension. It owes this amazing spectrum of healing powers to its complex chemical makeup.
Lavender is particularly rich in aromatic molecules called esters, which are antispasmodic, pacifying and tonic, while other molecules give it its antiviral, bacterial and anti-inflammatory powers. Of the many therapeutic attributes of Lavender oil, respiratory relief would be one of the most consistently reported benefits.
Here are some of the benefits of the Lavender Body Butter:
Lavender extract is naturally calming, soothing and is regarded as one of the most versatile essences. It is also considered a skin rejuvenating agent and possesses antiseptic qualities.
Lavender Body Butter nourishes and softens dry skin and provides natural protection against UV rays.
Lavender Body Butter can be used by every member of the family.
