Health Benefits of Lavender

Updated: Apr 2

We know that vitamins are essential to our overall health in our diets, but what about their role in skincare? Vitamins are known for their antioxidant benefits and are very popular in cosmetic ingredients. We thought we would start with our first love, lavender and all its goodness.

Lavender should be a staple in your household, whether it is for skin care or the scent in your home. Lavender does so much for the skin and senses that we don't even consider it.

Lavender is great for wrinkles, pimples, and dry skin - it is your best friend in the world when it comes to taking care of your skin. Lavender is known for killing bacteria naturally, unclogging those pores (yes, even using oil products can unclog your pores), reducing inflammation and is incredible for fading dark spots and acne scars.

Lavender is full of antioxidants and free radicals - which can cause premature wrinkles.

When it comes to your home, lavender is one of the most calming scents. Grab some dried lavender or a lavender sachet and tuck them away in your drawers. Lavender candles? Yes - but make sure they are all-natural and use natural fragrances.
