  • Diffuse 12 to 15 drops in a room diffuser to scent the air for all day stress and headache relief.
  • Add 2 drops of lavender essential oil to one ounce of your favorite unrefined, organic oil, such as sweet almond oil, coconut oil, or olive oil, for a delightfully scented body oil or massage oil.
  • Add two or three drops of lavender oil to a cotton ball and place inside your pillowcase for a relaxing night’s sleep.
  • Add 6 to 10 drops of lavender essential oil to a warm bath and soak away your stress and headache.
