TGIF! Today we are loving lavender extract and it's multiple benefits for your skin and overall health! Many use lavender essence for its calming and therapeutic properties. MIG Soap uses lavender essential oil in their popular Sleep Balm (we love the travel size for red-eye flights!) and in their soap, body butter, and body wash for a relaxing home spa experience. In addition to calming nerves, anxiety, and general restlessness, lavender extract has many beneficial properties for treating skin conditions.
Lavender extract is anti-bacterial, antiseptic, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory. It can help soothe inflamed, wounded, cut, or burned skin while preventing possible infection. It’s also a natural bug repellant and can help instantly soothe a bite and reduce irritation. Lavender extract is quite strong so we love it bit mixed in with other great naturally neutral ingredients like shea and cocoa butter, aloe, and jojoba and coconut oil. Those with skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne can benefit from products with lavender extract to help kill bacteria, speed up the healing process, and in scar prevention.
