Lavender is the most used essential oil in the world. It has so many uses and too many for me write about that is for sure. I can tell you what I use Lavender for, but first I want to say about an Avenir Essential Oil Company that does their thing with the oils and doesn’t charge for shipping, yes you read me right…FREE SHIPPING. But for real, nice to have free shipping and FANTASTIC PRODUCT. I didn’t even open the bottle yet, nd I smelled the lavender when I received the package.
Funny story about our first time using Avenir Oil though, the first night I dumped about 6-7 drops into my diffuser because I’m so used to my usual kind (no names- won’t be buying them anymore) of oil then we got ready for bed, I also put a 4 drops on my pillow and couple on my wrists. Oh my goodness, my husband swears I was trying to kill him with lavender that night. I swear I was only doing what I normally do, Avenir oil is strong and that is good because that means you don’t’ to have to use that much!
Avenir Oils knows what they are doing, you only need a couple drops and you are good. I was so used to my weak oils (I guess) that I drowned our room and we had to open the windows but the next day my room smelled like heaven. So 2nd night was perfect, I did 2 drops in my diffuser and 1 drop on my pillow then none on my wrist. I fell right to sleep with no issues and no complaints from hubby, he slept like a baby too.
What else I love about Avenir Oil is the price…under $9.00 (other Avenir oils are even cheaper) yes and a little goes a long way! Take my husband’s word for it! I think I found essential oil heavenn!

Our lavender essential oil comes from Bulgaria where it is grown at very high elevations. It needs to be grown at an altitude of at least 2,000 feet to be high quality. The oxygen level at this elevation allows lavender to become filled with health boosting antioxidants. It grows to approximately 3 feet high and has beautiful lilac colored flowers. These flowers are steam distilled to produce a high quality, pure essential oil.
