La Provence en Bouteille

Taking care of yourself

The Lavandin Essential Oil is relaxing and cleans up the air.

It helps soothing irritated skins.

And without coloring agents, without conservatives, without additives!

Painful muscles

. Moisten a piece of fabric or a compress with hot water, wring out, spinkle immediately with 4-5 drops of Lavandin Essential Oil and apply on the painful muscle.

. With a Linseed cushion: Sprinkle a cotton piece or a compress with some drops of Essential Oil, apply onto the painful muscle and cover with the cushion warmed for a moment in the microwave oven.

. You can as well massage the muscle with some Lavandin Essential Oil diluted with the vegetable oil of your choice (sunflower, grape seed, sweet almond, calendula...)

 Lavandin vinegar

. The Lavandin Vinegar is a natural alternative to the classic cosmetics. It is very easy to make and economic.

. Quick way: Put 1 cl (2 coffee spoons) of Lavandin Essential Oil into 50 cl of spirit vinegar or cider vinegar (softer).

. Slower but more charming way: In a hermetic jar, macerate flowers of lavender washed and dried during approximately 2 days, in spirit vinegar, or cider vinegar. Totally cover the flowers with the vinegar and put the jar in a sunny place for approximately 3 weeks. Drain, it is ready!

Oily skin

.The Lavandin Vinegar is indicated for excessive oil and problem skins. It prevents the appearance of blackheads and tightens the pores of the skin. Mix 1 volume of Lavandin Vinegar for 8 volumes of water. Use as a lotion on the face.

Athlete's foot

. This cutaneous disorder happens between the toes of the sportsmen, the skin becomes damaged and itches...

. After the shower, having carefully dried the skin between toes,  apply a few drops, diluted with the vegetable oil of your choice. 

. You can as well sprinkle a few drops of Lavandin Essential Oil directly into the shoes, in addition it is dedorising! 

Peaceful sleep

. At home, four drops on your pillowcase will help for a natural and restorative sleep and avoid night awakenings.

. Away on a trip, in the hotel room, far from the usual marks, 5 drops on a tissue to be placed under the pillow will remind the ambience and help to get some sleep. 

Headache

.To try to control it without using  classic painkillers, moisten a piece of fabric or a compress with very cold water, wring out, spinkle immediately with 4-5 drops of Lavandin Essential Oil and apply on the forehead.

. With a Linseed cushion: Sprinkle a cotton piece or a compress with some drops of Essential Oil, apply onto the forehead and cover with the refreshed cushion.

Itch

 . Apply 1 drop, pure if the skin surface is small, or diluted with the vegetable oil of your choice (sunflower, grape seed, sweet almond, calendula...)

Insects

. For a nature walk: 1 drop on the socks at ankle level, or at the bottom of the trouser legs, or on the tshirt sleeves, will repel most of the insects.

. In case of sting, to reduce itching, apply 1 drop, pure if the skin surface is small, or diluted with the vegetable oil of your choice (sunflower, grape seed, sweet almond, calendula...)

Dandruff

. Add 10 drops of Lavandin Essential Oil in each shampoo dose.

. Otherwise, rub a few drops on the scalp before the shampoo, wait a few minutes, then shampoo as usual.

. You can as well rub the scalp with Lavandin Vinegar.

Lice

. To keep them away: 2 drops of Lavandin Essential Oil behind each ear before leaving for school.

. Treatment:  Rub a few drops on the scalp before the shampoo, wait a few minutes, then shampoo, adding 10 drops of Essential Oil to the shampoo dose. Then use a lice comb.

. You can as well rub the scalp with Lavandin Vinegar.
