Lavender Essential Oil in a 15 ml dropper bottle
Lavender Essential oil is known for its aromatic and healing properties. This pure essential oil is available from Mesa Lavender Farms in 15 ml amber glass dropper bottles. For external use only.
Lavender essential oil is beneficial when used in aromatherapy, and as a topical application. The cultivar of lavender available in these 15 ml bottles is not for consumption due to its bitter high camphor content. Mesa Lavender Farms uses a food-grade edible form of lavender in our CBD lavender-lemon full-spectrum and CBD only tinctures.
Not all essential oils are safe to consume. “Some EOs have convulsant effects and may trigger seizures in both epileptic and healthy individuals. Internal use of EOs like sage, hyssop, rosemary, camphor, pennyroyal, eucalyptus, cedar, Thuja, and fennel can cause epileptic seizures because they contain thujone, 1,8-cineole, camphor, or pinocamphone, which have been identified as convulsive agents.”
This undiluted Pure Therapeutic Grade A essential oils is best used in a diffuser for aromatherapy, sprinkled on pillows to add in sleep, and added to salves, lotions, body butters, and other topically applied products. Additional benefits with links to peer-reviewed research are listed below. Essential oils are best not applied directly to skin without diluting depending on one’s sensitivity level. Concentrated essential oils should not be used around eyes or on mucous membranes . Sensitivity and problems with dermatitis can be a problem for sensitive individuals especially with young children. When using with children first determine if sensitivity is an issue.
Note: Essential oils are best diluted with a carrier oil before being applied to the skin. Some essential oils require dilution to 2% while others are safe for topical use at 20%. Some apply Lavender Essential oil directly to the skin without any dilution. Be sure to test your own sensitivity to prevent problems.
Essential Oils and Children
When using concentrated essential oils with children, always conduct a patch test to assess sensitivity before using. Apply a small amount of the product to an arm or a leg, and leave for 24 hours. Some care givers conduct this test on the foot. If there is any redness or pain to the touch, discontinue its use.
An important cautionary note. No essential oil should ever be used for babies under 3 months. Similarly, they should never be ingested by a child. Avoid using with infants or kids who have asthma.
Essential oils and pets
Many essential oils are toxic to pets. Oil of cinnamon, citrus, pennyroyal, peppermint, pine, sweet birch, tea tree (melaleuca), wintergreen, and ylang ylang, are poisonous to cats and dogs. Citrus and other essential oils are toxic to cats. Both ingestion and skin exposure and these essential oils used in a diffuser can be toxic. For that reason Mesa Lavender Farms Pet CBD tinctures and salve do not contain any essential oils. We highly recommend you avoid lemon and peppermint around your dogs. Mesa Lavender Farms recommends you speak with your veterinarian about the use of essential oils around your pets. Lavender essential oil is considered the essential oil which can be safely used in a diffuser with your pets.
Lavender essential oil is used in diffusers in kennels for its calming properties. Groomers also report applying lavender essential oil to their hands when handling a dog that is particularly nervous about being groomed. Breathing the lavender has been shown to help reduce their anxiety and stress.
