“Therapeutically, this scent does have a potent antidepressant effect and may be used, via face and body massage, skin care, baths, or vaporisers to treat nervousness, sadness, or long-term stress.”

“The balancing properties of lavender can correct emotional problems and feelings of instability. Its calming effect will induce a restful sleep try a drop of lavender oil on your pillow or into an evening bath.”

NEROLI (oil of the orange blossom):
“Neroli … is one of the most suitable essential oils to use for nervous tension, insomnia, and stress-related illnesses as it has a very positive calming influence on mind and body.”

My book urges caution when using the oils as they are very potent and May therefore cause a skin rash (it does say, however, that lavender is “the only oil that can be safely applied undiluted to the skin”). It is suggested to put a drop or two into 3 tablespoons of carrier oil (such as a neutral odor light vegetable or nut oil) for a massage, or else 2 to 4 drops of oil(s) to a warm bath and soaking for 10 minutes.

Another suggested use is as a room freshener – use a clay or ceramic vaporiser to heat water with, or near, the oil. An easy way to make a room freshener with essential oils is to wet a cotton ball with the essential oil and place it in a room or cupboard to scent the area. (For maximum effect, place somewhere warm such as behind a heater or fireplace.)
