Lavender oil is one of the most common and well-known essential oils, but few people know how to make lavender oil at home. An infusion is made from mixing the buds of the plant with carrier oils. The buds contain several compounds and antimicrobial properties which give lavender its fresh, floral smell.

Lavender has been used for centuries to heal a variety of ailments. Most notably, it’s been known to help treat anxiety, headaches, sensitive skin issues, and insomnia. In fact, lavender is often used to calm patients before they receive anesthesia.

This makes it a great essential oil to have in your home first-aid kit. In addition to helping you sleep, lavender oil is wonderful for your skin. It can be used to treat acne, wrinkles, burns, insect bites, and sunburns.
