I’ve always been fascinated with aromatherapy and a couple of years back was happy to connect with a lovely who writes on this subject at her blog Laina’s Corner. I requested Laina Lloyd do a guest post for Everyday Gyaan on the benefits of some essential oils. So here it is……..
Did you know that the essential oil of lavender is considered the universal oil? Lavender has been known to balance the body and work wherever there is a need. I always tell my people “If you don’t know which essential oil to use, use lavender.” The aromatherapy of lavender would be one of an emotional or spiritual response. When I smell Lavender, I am taken back emotionally to the many visits I had as a child to my grandmother’s home. She had lavender sachets in all her linen drawers and hanging on the bed posts in her bedroom. I definitely have a loving emotional response to the scent of lavender.
