Lavender  has a fresh, sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing and refreshing.  Lavender can assist the body when adapting to stress

or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy.  It may be used to soothe and cleanse common cuts, bruises, and skin irritations. Lavender may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods.

Wear the scent

  1. Apply essential oils to your body. Apply it to your pulse points such as inside wrists, behind the ears, base of your throat, elbows, behind our knees. These are the areas of your body where you can feel your heartbeat.  These areas release more heat, therefore interacting with your pheromones, a chemical secreted  that influences the behavior of others of the same species, commonly know as a sexual attractant.
  2. wash your clothes with lavender scented laundry products

Great aid for relaxing and winding down

Spray your pillow with lavender mist spray.
Plant lavender in your yard. Make sure you plant it where people can brush by, releasing more of the scent.
Add a dried lavender bouquet to your environment.
After lavender scented  candles burn down, break up the remains and put it in a decorative bowl for additional scent usage.

Balance or boost stamina and energy

    My favorite all-purpose home cleaning spray (for glass, countertops, etc) is 1 part white vinegar, 1 part rubbing alcohol, 1 part water, 5 drops lavender oil and a few pieces of lemon rind. Love love love – and it keeps windows streak-free better than store bought stuff.

    Best regards!
