As one of the safest, oldest used, and most versatile of essential oils, it's no wonder we still love lavender as much as the Romans did. Lavender has many uses, which is why we at Sha-Faun Enterprises like to keep a bottle of Young Living lavender essential oil on hand at all times.
As a wellness company, Sha-Faun wants to show you how lavender essential oil can help your family be well every day.
7 Reasons Why Lavender Should be One of Your Favorite Essential Oils:
1. Lavender Helps with Minor Cuts, Bruises, and Burns:
As one of the safest oils, even for kids, lavender can help soothe minor cuts and bruises for your entire family. To create a wound balm, mix a few drops of lavender with a few drops of carrier oil such as coconut oil or sweet almond oil and gently apply to the minor cut or burn with a cotton swab. Lavender can help with pain and promote the healing process.
2. Lavender Helps Bring on Sleep:
As a mild essential oil with relaxing effects, lavender can help soothe the members of your family into a quiet, relaxing slumber. Diffuse a few drops of lavender after dinner time to help your family relax and get ready for a good night's sleep. For those really troublesome nights, you can sneak a few drops of lavender onto a tissue and place it in your pillowcase.
3. Use Lavender to Keep your Acne at Bay:
With antiseptic properties, lavender can help fight the acne-causing bacteria on your skin. Young Living lavender essential oil not only fights acne on your skin, but it can also help reduce the appearance of acne scars. Moisturize your skin and reduce acne by making a lavender sugar scrub.
4. Help Lessen Headaches Using Lavender:
Lavender helps to reduce headaches and migraines so that you can avoid taking too many over the counter medications. Double down on the headache relief by combining lavender with peppermint essential oil for effective headache treatment. At Sha-Faun, we recommend keeping a lavender and peppermint roller in your car to avoid rush hour stress and soothe your commute home.
5. Nourish Your Skin:
While the carrier oils can moisturize your skin, the real nourishing power comes from the vitamins and antioxidants in essential oils. Lavender essential oil contains properties that will promote healthy skin on a deeper level.
6. Ease your Mind:
Anxiousness gets to us all from time to time. Whether your anxiety is chronic or temporary due to stress, lavender essential oil can help with some of that anxiety. Lavender promotes feelings of peace and calmness through its substantial aromatherapy benefits. Create a soothing bedtime or anytime lotion by combining lavender with your favorite unscented body lotion.
7. Relieve Chest Congestion using Lavender Essential Oil:
Using lavender's anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmatic, and calming properties, you can make a chest rub that may help alleviate chest congestion and calm coughs. Combine clary sage and lavender with coconut oil to make a soothing chest salve.
Soothe pain relax your mind, and nourish your skin using lavender essential oil and its therapeutic properties. Here at Sha-Faun Enterprises, we love using lavender daily.

I love Young Living Essential Oils, here is some great info about these 3 oils & how they work, I use them often & rotate them often too!!
PanAway, Deep Relief, and Cool Azul, which oil should you use and when? First off, there is no exact answer for everyone, each person has a different chemical make-up and each oil reacts differently on every person. Below is a side by side comparison of these three oils so you can learn the difference and better understand which oil you may prefer to use for specific situations. All three oils are great to apply before and after activity and for a cooling sensation on the skin.
Comes pre-diluted in a roller-ball, making it easy to take on the go, throw in gym bag, and easy to apply.
Smell: Deep Relief does not have as strong of a smell as Panaway or Cool Azul because it is pre-diluted. Some people prefer the softer aroma. The invigorating, minty smells stand out the most!
Did you know? Menthol is responsible for the cooling sensation Peppermint causes when it is inhaled or applied to the skin!

All the oils in PanAway are found in Deep Relief, however, PanAway is NOT pre-diluted, making this a very potent and powerful essential oil. PanAway has a child proof cap because of the high amount of wintergreen essential oil. Wintergreen is high in a constituent called Methyl salicylate. Methyl salicylate is used as the active ingredient in many sports creams, but usually from a synthetic source.
Smell: PanAway has a refreshing, stimulating and potent smell. The wintergreen aroma stands out more than it does in Deep Relief or Cool Azul. Some people say PanAway smells like rootbeer, this is because wintergreen is actually used to make rootbeer!
Did you know? Eugenol, the main constituent in clove, has been heavily researched for its beneficial properties.

Is not pre-diluted and features two Young Living exclusive oils: Dorado Azul and Plectranthus Oregano. Young Living is the only company that sells these two oils, and they are homegrown on Young Living farms! Cool Azul also has a child-proof cap because of the high amount of wintergreen essential oil.
Smell: Cool Azul smells much sweeter than Deep Relief and PanAway. I actually like this aroma the best because it is light, but yet uplifting, invigorating and sweet.
Did you know? Grown on Young Living’s Ecuador farm, Plectranthus Oregano has similar constituents and
properties as Oregano, but it is actually in the mint (Lamiaceae) family. It was named by D. Gary Young because of its oregano-like aroma."
