In the topical use of lavender one of the most obvious methods of usage is as massage oil. Since its aroma is very strong, it’s enough to mix a few drops into the massage oil each time.
Lavender oil mixed into massage oils reduces the exhaustion of muscles. Lavender is a volatile oil, when massaged into the skin it is absorbed in about 1 hour, thus after sports and hard physical work its effects can be felt soon. During the massage, aside from lavender oil’s mild pain killer and inflammation reducer effect, its scent is also curative, since the inhaled oil’s calming effect prevails well, and assists the relaxation along with the massage.
