Organic Lavender Essential Oil
We love this oil so much it features in nearly all of our products. It is undoubtedly the most versatile essential oil and consists of a complex chemical structure. It is one of the few oils which can be used neat (undiluted) on the skin or in wounds. The detailed array of therapeutic properties of lavender are too vast to list here. Lavender is a very useful and safe essential oil to use for many of the minor upsets of babies; colic, nappy rash, teething, burns, rashes, infections, colds, irritability and sleeplessness. It is also very safe to use during pregnancy. Lavender is one of the three essential oils which most powerfully stimulate the growth of healthy new cells – Tea Tree and Neroli are the others. Lavender has numerous active constituents but above all, it is primarily the balancing and normalising action of the oil which makes it so beneficially versatile.
How to use it
Dig into the balm and apply a small amount to sore or cracked nipples after every feed, although this balm is so natural and edible, we still suggest to wipe off before every feed. For scars, cuts, C-sections wounds, eczema and any other tears or rashes, simply apply small amount to area twice daily, it can be applied to open wounds, it will not sting. It will promote the natural healing properties of your wonderful body!
How does it smell?
In developing this product we really didn’t put much thought into its pleasant smell, but of course as we are using such beautifully organic ingredients such as the sweet honey aroma of beeswax and the delightful aroma of coconut oil and shea butter, it just so happens that this Healing Balm smells delightfully clean and fresh, with a very subtle hint of lavender.
