Soothe Your Issues Away with Lavender
Wouldn’t it be magical if a simple scent could make your skin problems melt away? Okay, magic might not exist and we don’t live in a Disney movie – however! There is one pretty, purple flower that might be the answer to quite a few of our skin and sleep issues.
The French adore it and the Victorians used it as an antiseptic, you will find that lavender has a storied history through time as a crisp, feminine scent that oozes class. However, giving its wearer the air of fancy cleanliness isn’t the only thing this flower is good for.
Lavender oil not only smells divine, but can benefit our skin and mood in several ways. This gentle and calming moisturizer is also a natural antibacterial, killing pesky acne-causing germs. It is a natural anti-inflammatory, soothing redness, scarring and irritated skin. Lavender also serves as a source of antioxidants, making it an excellent antidote for premature aging and fine lines.
Besides the cosmetic and medicinal effects, this oil has a powerful effect on your brain and mood. Inhaling the scent of lavender for three minutes reduces anxiety, decreases the risk of depression and improves your mood. Some studies show inhaling diluted lavender reduces headaches and stress, stabilizes blood pressure and improves quality of sleep.
Aromatic, beneficial and natural?
Better sleep, you say?
We definitely need that considering how hectic our lives can get, and lavender just smells SO. GOOD. This oil definitely needs to be diluted, otherwise the strength of the smell could cause the adverse effect of causing headaches.
That is exactly why CHAOS included lavender oil in both their signature creams to nourish, calm and soothe skin. Whether you need a heavy-duty hydrating skin emollient to nourish cracked skin or a relaxing night cream to drift you off to sleep, SOOTHE and SLEEP have you covered night and day.
