Essential Oil of the Day: Lavender

Essential Oil of the Day: Lavender

Many a herbalist and aromatherapist have said: “if you have no other essential oil, have lavender.”  This is one of the most well-known and widely used oils in the world.  Lavender happens to be one of the only oils that can be used undiluted and is often referred to as a medicine chest in a bottle.   Even the color lavender seems to instantly evoke the familiar scent and relaxing abilities of this beautiful plant.  With a pleasant aroma, large diversity in traditional uses and excellent reputation, it’s no surprise this is such a popular oil!

The Oil

Lavender essential oil is steam distilled from Lavendula augustifolia.  The oil is primarily made from the flowers of the plant which are lovely and used in herbalism as well. With over 20 varieties of this plant, you’ll find a slight variation between each brand of lavender essential oil on the market.  It has been widely used throughout history especially in the perfume industry.  Aromatherapists and herbalists alike use this oil and it is commonly found in hospitals, doctors offices, and mainstream pharmacies as well.

TriLight Health and Lavender Oil

We use lavender essential oil in Lympha Rub and ASMA

TriLight's Lympha Rub Tammy says

“This stuff is great. I’m a nurse, and I carry it with me at work to prevent all the germs from getting me down. At the first sign of a sore throat, sniffle, or sinus headache, I rub it on, and it keeps it at bay. Love it!”


TriLight's ASMA

 My daughter had RSV a couple years ago and her lungs have been weak ever since. The dr says she will be more prone to asthma so awhile back I found an old bottle of ASMA from years and years ago and gave her some. When she gets sick she usually needs breathing treatments and such and ASMA was able to calm her lungs down without needing one! So at the first signs of a cold, I give her ASMA and either lungs plus or Viramune and it greatly helps calm her lungs down and helps her breathe easier! Tastes great also! ~ MRB
