How to Use Lavender Oil 11 Different Ways
How do you use lavender essential oil? I love how multi-purpose Lavender is. It is an oil I reach for all the time. And I order it nearly every month on my doTERRA LRP order.
If you didn’t already know, Lavender oil is my FAVORITE essential oil out of them ALL. Here is how to use lavender oil easily, eleven different ways!
Buy doTERRA Lavender
1. Use Lavender Oil For Anxious Feelings
I use lavender internally for the feeling of calm it helps me achieve. You will only need 2-3 drops at most. Lavender is supportive of the brain and nervous system. To use lavender internally, you will need two things.
- doTERRA Lavender essential oil (please note – I don’t recommend other brands as they may not be pure. doTERRA oils are trusted by my family.)
- doTERRA Veggie capsules for internal usage
Simply put a few drops of the doTERRA lavender inside the veggie capsule. Then swallow with some water or milk. You will enjoy feeling relaxed and peaceful as the essential oil works to help ease your anxious feelings.
2. Relax With Lavender Essential Oil
Here’s a nice way to relax. Give yourself or a loved one a foot massage using lavender oil. This is incredibly relaxing and soothing, especially for children. Or at night to calm yourself into sleeping well.
I especially love our doTERRA unscented lotion for working essential oils into the feet. It leaves our feet feeling soft, but it isn’t greasy. Plus the doTERRA lotion is made from all natural ingredients!
3. Support Seasonal Respiratory Health
Did you know that doTERRA Lavender may be used internally to aid with seasonal discomfort? Lavender oil may be used alone for seasonal respiratory health. But even more effective is the following combination. Used together as an essential oil TRIO, Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint are a POWERFUL support for seasonal and/or respiratory issues.
LLP, as the Lavender, Lemon & Peppermint trio is affectionately known, is especially effective internally. For your convenience, I suggest taking internally using the TriEase capsules. 🙂 TriEase is SO convenient to carry on the go, and it already has the perfect amount of essential oil in a pre-measured capsule!
4. Help Soothe Feelings Of Dizziness
doTERRA Lavender essential oil even helps me ease occasional feelings of dizziness. Apply right behind (but never inside of) the ears. Use with Helichrysum oil for a powerfully effective combination. You can use both oils again as often as needed. But usually, I find this combination helps soothe my feelings of dizziness within just a few minutes.
5. Lavender Oil Benefits Healthy Emotions
DIFFUSE LAVENDER DURING times of tension.
Emotionally, Lavender may aid in overcoming abuse. Lavender is also soothing during times of grief or sorrow.

SOOTHES SKIN – RUB DIRECTLY on the affected area. Dilute with fractionated coconut oil, as the coconut oil has it’s own properties to soothe skin. This will also keep skin protected from a feeling of stinging as the oil works if the skin is broken/delicate. Used topically on a regular basis, it can help with the appearance of wrinkles.

I understand how tough it can be figuring out which essential oils are safe for children. doTERRA Lavender is tested with a wide variety of tests to ensure quality. It’s one of the gentlest essential oils out there. You can use diluted lavender with confidence. Or if you are not comfortable with topical usage, you can diffuse Lavender for children’s benefit.
My favorite ways to use lavender oil with my own children is for calming, mood support and sleep support!
