Lavender Quick Tip

After a smoke-filled night (in a bar or club, for instance), you can take a shower or bath to wash the smell off your skin, but what about your hair? It’s late and you don’t want to go to bed with wet hair, so what can you do? Essential oils to the rescue!
  • Take an essential oil you love (I think lavender, ylang ylang, or a citrus oil would be best)
  • Put several drops (4-6) in the palm of your hand; 
  • Rub your hands together and 
  • Then go over your hair.
Be sure to get the underside as well as the top of your hair. Just mix the oils in really well and you won’t have to go to bed smelling like cigarette smoke.

Truth be told: smoking is not allowed in many public places nowadays. But even if you just have a smoking break outside during work hours, you still will smell like smoke whether you think you do or not. For people like me, we can smell the essence of cigarette smoke from miles away. Just a touch of lavender will keep it from being obvious to those who work around you.
