The Power of Purple: Lavender Benefits in Natural Skincare

There’s So Much More To This Fragrant Botanical Than It’s Relaxing Properties

Many of us love the relaxing scent of lavender and enjoy it as part of aromatherapy or other spa treatments.  But if you’re interested in using more natural skincare ingredients, you’ll want to know that this amazing botanical oil offers a lot of benefits for the skin. 

The Five A’s of Lavender Oil for Natural Skincare

  • Antibacterial 
  • Antioxidant 
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Antimicrobial 
  • Antifungal

Fighting Acne

With antibacterial properties, lavender attacks blemish-causing bacteria and helps unclog pores. Its anti-inflammatory properties help prevent blemishes from forming as well as treating existing blemishes for clearer complexions.

Soothing Irritated Skin

Lavender oil can help alleviate the symptoms of chronic skin conditions. As an anti-inflammatory and antifungal, it helps treat the dry, itchy and scaly skin caused by eczema. Similarly, for psoriasis, lavender oil helps cleanse the skin and reduce irritation and redness. It can help to treat sunburns or other skin inflammation. If you have a bug bite, lavender oil can take out some of the itch. 


The antioxidants in lavender helps protect against the damage of free radicals, which cause fine lines and wrinkles.

Reducing Skin Discoloration

Lavender can help reduce redness or blotchiness, as well as reduce sunspots.

Speedier Healing of Skin Tissue

Some research has indicated that lavender oil may promote the healing of cuts, scrapes or other minor wounds, thanks to its antimicrobial properties.

Note that lavender can be an allergen, so if you experience redness or itching after using it, you should stop using it. Also, pure or concentrated lavender oil may be too strong on its own, so we recommend it as an ingredient rather than solo. Fortunately, you can find it in many natural skincare products.
