Drip – a – Drop : Relax and unwind

Lavender poster

Lavender Fields

“The floures of Lavender picked from the knaps, I meane the blew part and not the husk, mixed with Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Cloves, made into powder, and given to drinke in the distilled water thereof, doth helpe the panting and passion of the heart, prevaileth against giddinesse, turning or swimming of the brain, and members subject to the palsie.” thus wrote John Gerard in 1597

Don’t be mistaken – I’m not for a moment suggesting that you use this recipe! I just love the fact that if you poke around on the internet it’s possible to find all sorts of fascinating information. Herbalists and healers have been writing about the use and value of Lavender for many hundreds of years.

Lavender is probably one of the most well known of essential oils. It’s a great go to if you want to wind down at the end of a busy day or are having trouble going to sleep. Here’s a few tips on how to use it –

  • Sprinkle a drop or two on your pillow when you go to sleep.
  • Sprinkle a drop or two onto your hankie or tissue. Hold it close to your nose and breathe in the sweet scent slowly and deeply. As you do, release any tension, tightness, worries and imagine yourself unwinding.
  • make a spritz – fill 100ml glass atomiser bottle three quarters full with filtered water. Add half a dozen drops of lavender essential oil. Shake well. Use as a personal spray or room spray. Take it to work – your colleagues may enjoy it too. Squirt some in the car – it just might save you from road rage!

Do yourself a favour and only use 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oil. Personally I prefer to use Young           Living oils as  I know and trust the quality of their Seed to Seal process –     Buy some now

  1. Good site! I really love how it is simple on my eyes and the articles or blog posts are well written. I’m wondering how
    I could be notified anytime a new post has been created.
    I have subscribed to your RSS which should do the trick! Have a fantastic day!

    1. Thanks, I’m glad you like it and have subscribed 🙂 I’m not sure what RSS means (lol!) However, if that does not work, on the right side bar of my blog there are two options for subscription – by email notification or follow. I hope you have an awesome day!

  2. Hi Raili, thanks its a good clear cut description of the many facets. well done, loving the pink & purple streaks, suits you beautifully.

  3. This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to
    start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.

    I really loved what you had tto say, and more than that, how you
    presented it. Too cool!

  4. I do believe all the ideas you have introduced for your post.
    They are very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless,
    the posts are very brief for beginners. Could you please extend them a little from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.
