Essential Oil Highlight # 1  Lavender
Today we are going to highlight Lavender Essential Oil by Young Living.

Young Living works closely with Health Canada in order to have certain products approved as Natural Health Products (NHP).  What does this mean? According to this link ( through the Natural Health Products Directorate, Health Canada assures that all Canadians have access to a wide range of natural health products that are safe, effective and of high quality.

We assess all natural health products before allowing their sale in Canada. We also check that NHPs are properly manufactured (without contaminants or incorrect ingredients). And we do post-market monitoring to make sure that NHP Regulations are being respected.

Young Living`s Lavender Oil is an NHP and has these features and benefits:
* Promotes feelings of calm and fights occasional nervous tension
* Has balancing properties and calms the mind and body
* Helps to support digestive discomfort
* Reduces the symptoms of cough and cold
* Can be soothing to the skin after a day in the sun
* Reduces the appearance of blemishes
* Helps to relieve headaches
* Supports aging skin
* Includes the naturally occurring constituents linalyl acetate, linalool and ocimene
* Helps to relieve joint and muscle pain associated with sprains, strains and rheumatoid arthritis 
The sweet, herbaceous, floral aroma of this essential oil is fantastic when diffused in the evening to promote calm before bedtime but can also be added to a carrier oil and applied topically or added to high quality (unscented) Epsom salts for a relaxing bath.  Lavender is one of my favorite essential oils from Young Living`s premium starter kit and one that I use every day from my skin care regime to relaxation.  I would love to send you a sample to try, just send me a message and it will be on its way!
Happy Tuesday everyone!
