Betty’s essential oil tips

Betty Babble’s buzz

Did you know that lavender oil can soothe heal and calm you?

hummm wonder if that helps when someone puts their hand up my back, I just think it will get me wet! After all I am just a puppet.

This therapeutic oil can be used to treat depression and also can be used to relax

muscles and ease tension. Extra bonus is that it has strong antiseptic properties

which can effectively heal conditions such as sunburn or acne. If your a puppet like me you won’t need to worry about this! LOL

The combination of compounds in Lavender are alcohol, ketones and esters.

Lavender contains up to 50% alcohol linalol which helps to kill bacteria and

viruses besides healing burns wounds and sores. Ketones are compounds that

help to relieve pain, build new skin tissue and reduce inflammation. Ketones also

have sleep inducing effect but can be toxic if the lavender contains over 35%, I wonder if it can kill a puppet?

Diabetics, epileptics and pregnant woman should avoid them completely. Esters

ease swelling, soreness and muscle cramps, fight fungal infections and prevent

scarring. Esters also regulate you mood which helps prevent you from

experiencing hysteria and depression. Lavender is one of the few oils that can be

applied undiluted on skin. WARNING…do not use if your skin is not 100% flesh! LOL
