Add 8 drops of Lavandin essential oil in a large bowl full of boiling water. Sit and place bowl in front of you so that you can bend over the bowl, and place a large cloth towel over the back of your head and over the bowl. This creates a miniature steam room. Sit for 10 minutes and allow the lavender steam to cleanse your sinuses. You can also add peppermint or eucalyptus essential oil for a stronger steam.

Combine 1 cup of water or lavandin hydrosol with 1 cup of distilled white vinegar. Add 12 drops each of Lavandin essential oil and your favorite citrus essential oil. Funnel the mixture into a spray bottle and shake well before each use. Use this all-purpose cleaner on counters and floors.

Enjoy the gifts that nature has to offer by using high-quality essential oil in your daily life. It’s empowering to have a powerful go-to remedy that’s natural, safe and effective – all within reach.
