Lavender Skin Care Products
Lavender's natural antiseptic and antibiotic properties make it the perfect infusion into a natural moisturizing product. Here are some examples of what are available in the cottage lavender skin care industry.
Lavender Hand and Body Lotion
- When you think of lavender skin care products, the first thing that may come to mind is hand and body lotion. This is because lotions are some of the most common skin care products available. Hand made lotions are usually rich in high quality moisturizing ingredients such as jojoba oil or olive oil. Healing ingredients such as aloe and vitamin E are often added. The addition of
lavender essential oil
transforms a rich moisturizing lotion into an aromatherapy body lotion.
Lavender Body Cream - Many people prefer a thicker medium to hydrate and treat their dry chapped skin. Many products are available to choose from that often have a shea butter base mixed with oils such as jojoba, sunflower, or almond. These body creams are often enriched with vitamins such as E, A, C or D. It is common to find that they are infused with
such as Evening Primrose, Ylang Ylang and of course Lavender!
Body Butter - The thickest of all the skin treatments, body butter is usually made from a base of shea butter, but sometimes other natural moisturizing butters are used such as cocoa or mango. Rich in oils such as wheat germ, jojoba, and almond, these lavender skin care products are some of the most concentrated and healing due to the addition of vitamins and other essential oils such as vanilla, carrot seed, or geranium, besides the wonderful smelling lavender.
Lip Balm - Bring relief to dry chapped lips with lip balm that has a lavender fragrance. Most of these hand made products have a base of beeswax and oil such as olive oil, jojoba oil and coconut oil. Vitamin E is acommon ingredient along with lavender essential oil. Citrus oils like orange are sometimes added for flavor. These natural ingredients contribute to healing and moisturizing.
Lavender Shave Cream - Shaving has been a chore of both men and women for a very long time. Unfortunately, shaving can be quite hard on the skin. Several of the cottage manufacturers of lavender skin care products have now started making shave cream or shave gel that is much kinder to the skin. With the addition of lavender essential oil, any cuts or abrasions that are inadvertently caused by the razor are instantly treated by the analgesic and antiseptic properties of the oil. Lavender is sometimes combined with other oils such as sandalwood or cedarwood for a more masculine blend.
Lavender After Shave - Shaving can leave skin dry and tender. What better way to follow up the task than with a lavender after shave lotion? There are a few on the market and they are likely to include aloe vera or other therapeutic ingredients besides the lavender essential oil.
Lavender Deodorant, Perfume and Powder - Although less common, a few of the manufacturers of lavender skin care products have started to make deodorants, perfumes and powders. These are typically all natural products that are particularly suited for those with sensitive skin, and of course those who love the smell of lavender!
As you can see, there is quite a variety of lavender skin care products available. These are hand made and often contain much higher quality ingredients than can be found in their mass produced counterparts. Try some of these products from one of the many small scale manufacturers and you are sure to be pleased.
