My quest to obtain more essential oils continues, and I have a goal of trying all of the businesses so I can find the oils that work best for me and my household. Avenir Oils sent me their Lavender Essential Oil. You can read about how lavender oil might benefit your diabetes here.
Upon arrival, I opened it to take a whiff. Of course, it being an essential oil the scent was strong. However, it was still pleasant. I gathered up some baking soda to make a carpet
deodorizer for my floors. If you haven't used essential oils in that way, all you have to do is take 1/2 cup of baking soda and three drops of essential oil. Mix those two ingredients together and then sprinkle on your carpet. Let it sit for about 15 minutes and then vacuum the floor. The scent is not overpowering, but subtle and pleasant. And your carpet definitely smells a lot better.
So far, that is all I have used this lavender essential oil for. But, I have plans to use it in a homemade laundry detergent recipe that I love. I will also use it to make some bath salts for myself. You can't go wrong with lavender bath salts.
This is a good oil and I do recommend it.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
