Why Lavender™ is my Favorite Single Oil

By Jodi Cohen

I personally believe that essential oils blends can be far more powerful than single oils, which is why I offer primarily proprietary blends that are designed to balance different organ systems and regions of the brain.

That said, if I had to pick one single oil that was my all around favorite, it would be Lavender™, as it is the most balancing and multi-purpose of all single oils. The lavender plant is beautiful, fragrant, and celebrated around the world. However, as a lavender essential oil, it truly blossoms.

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender™ can be used to:

  • Calm burns, insect bites, and help reduce scarring
  • Reduce headache pain
  • Cool a sunburn or a fever
  • Relieve anxiety, depression, stress, and exhaustion
  • Repel fleas on pets or lice on humans
  • Make clothes smell good when added to the dryer or rooms smell good when diffused

Once a year, the town of Sequim, WA (nestled in the magical Olympic Peninsula about 2 hours outside of Seattle) throws a lavender extravaganza known as the Lavender Festival, where all the local farms open their doors, their hearts, and their minds to educate and elevate visitors on all things lavender. I was privileged to be able to tour the farms and help harvest and distill the lavender plants.

As you may know, essential oils tend to either add heat or have a cooling effect, depending upon their chemical makeup.  For example, blue chamomile and Peppermint™ are cooling oils and thyme and oregano are hot oils. Lavender™, on the other hand, serves as a balancer.  It can help cool you down if you suffer from a fever or sunburn or conversely warm you up if you’re feeling cold.  As a balancer, Lavender™ always brings you back to neutral, normal function which is what Vibrant Blue Oils blends are all designed to do. Lavender™ is one of the unique single oils that serves as a balancer which is why it is my personal favorite!
