Lavender oil roller by Revive
Lavender is a staple in our home because it works so well for sleep, and relieving stress, anxiety and tension.
There are many ways to use lavender, but my favorite way is to roll it on my temples before bed or when I’m stressed.
Lavender seriously helps when I’m stressed.
Another cool thing about Lavender oil is it has been shown to help with post-partum depression in new mothers, with twice weekly aromatherapy sessions.
Revive makes Lavender oil (diluted in coconut oil) in a convenient roller for easy application!
