Which is the best lavender essential oil for skin and hair?

Previously, lavender was just grandma’s secret powder room freshener, but it’s now widely used in the cosmetics industry – from milk tea to marshmallows to cleansers to masks. In addition to its use in skin care, lavender essential oil has been hailed as a hero. We will tell you about lavender essential oil so you make an informed decision.

Lavender oil is a multipurpose oil that has anti-inflammatory properties, antifungal properties, antidepressant properties, antiseptic properties, antibacterial properties, hypotensive properties, and sedative properties.

Benefits of lavender essential oil

There are a variety of ways lavender oil can benefit the skin, including lessening acne, improving skin tone, and reducing wrinkles, as well as improving digestion and hair health.

Helps to prevent acne

As dry skin can overproduce sebum (your skin’s natural oil) to compensate for the lack of oil, acne can flare up. It moisturizes skin gently and is non comedogenic.

Helps to detoxify the skin 

The incredible aromatherapeutic properties of lavender led us to include it in the bathtub as well. The bath salts are infused with crystallized kelp to create an at-home spa experience. They deeply detoxify and eliminate harmful toxins from the skin, while relaxing sore muscles and tired minds at the same time.

Helps to promote hair growth

Researchers have studied the effect of lavender essential oil on hair growth recently. However, this benefit is much more effective when the oil penetrates the skin. There is some evidence that lavender oil may help with hair loss and alopecia. Although more research is needed to prove this, people can use it in their hair safely.

 Helps to prevent hair loss

The number, depth, and thickness of hair of mice increased after applying lavender oil to their backs once a day for four weeks, according to an animal study. Although it is not known whether this works in humans, perhaps it inspires you to create a DIY lavender hair mask.

Helps to give a natural glow

The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of lavender oil can be included in your clean skincare routine. When free radicals attack, they can cause your skin to get into a tizzy by impairing mitochondrial function and speeding up the aging process. Antioxidants fight free radicals.
