Lavender Recipe Card – Fragrant Insect Repellent Recipe

It has been told that Lavender was one of the sweetest
scents in the Garden of Eden. Lavender is one of the safest
most widely used and versatile perennial herbs. It is the oil most
associated with healing skin irritations because it simulates the cells of injured skin to heal quickly and smoothly. Use it for acne, bruises, insect bites for its anti-bacterial qualities.
The scent is also calming
so soak it in your tub or foot bath, or put some under your
pillow in an old sock for a restful sleep.
You can even mix dried lavender in your food processor
with baking soda for a wonderful smelling
natural carpet de-odorizer. Or, mix a little lavender oil
into your favorite body creme.

How to Make Lavender Oil at Home - a basic lavender oil recipe
(commercial oil is distilled, which is too difficult at home)

Fill a mason jar with lavender stems, leaves and flowers
that have been lightly crushed. Stuff them in tighly.
Pour olive oil , sunflower oil or almond oil to the top and let sit
in a dark area for at least three weeks.
Be sure to shake the jar every couple of days.
Then, strain and place into an air tight container.

Use as a massage oil, in the tub, or in recipes. The distilled oil
will be more potent, but home made oil is wonderful too.

We’ve been conditioned by advertisements that synthetic chemicals are better and stronger at everything from cleaning to drugs. Yet, it is from nature that most drugs and concoctions have been formulated. Make no mistake, essential oils from flowers ARE chemicals too. That’s why they work!  Buy they do not damage our environment or our bodies,  and the little things we do to return to nature, the more we are true to ourselves.  It sounds so cheesy, but it’s true.  We are indeed body, mind and spirit, but the body part is natural chemicals from the planet, just like flowers and herbs.  Try this recipe and smell great while repelling bugs naturally.
