Nykaa Lavender Essential Oil Review


I love aromatic products and when it comes to essential oils, lavender is certainly one of my favourites. A few months back, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Nykaa was offering flat 50 percent discount on its range of essential oils. I picked up this bottle of Nykaa Lavender oil at a discounted price of just Rs 175/- instead of Rs 350, which is the original marked price. Today I would like to review this oil in this post:

Priced at Rs 350 for a 10 ml bottle, Nykaa Lavender Essential Oil is a colourless oil that comes in a concentrated form. It needs to be mixed with a carrier oil of your choice so that you may reap its benefits. The oil comes tightly sealed in a dark blue bottle with a screw cap, which can easily be replaced with a dropper cap that allows you to take the oil in required amount (as many drops of oil as you wish to take) as per your convenience without wastage or spillage.


  •  “Skin: Dilute 2 to 4 drops of lavender with a carrier oil of your choice, and apply it to your chosen area of skin to give it a general uplifting boost. Applying pure lavender oil to your skin (especially open wounds) could irritate your skin, so make sure you mix it into just a little bit of a carrier oil, such as coconut oil or jojoba oil especially if you have sensitive skin.
  • Hair: Lavender oil used daily as part of a stimulating scalp massage can help to regrow hair. Create a natural conditioner mask by blending lavender oil with olive oil or coconut oil and massage it into your scalp once in a week for a soft and shiny mane.
  • Aromatherapy: Rejuvenate and energize your mind and body by adding 3 to 4 drops of Lavender essential oil in the diffuser of your choice to create a calming environment. Add a few drops to a spray bottle, mix with distilled water and spray this mist around the room.
  • Relieve stress and improve sleep: Add a few drops (2-4) to a general unscented body lotion and rub into your feet before going to bed. You can add lavender oil to your bath water to help you wind down after a long, stressful day. Massage lavender oil into sore muscles to calm the pain and ease tension or add a few drops to an Epsom salt bath for a pain-relieving soak.
  • Natural deodorizer: Freshen your linen closet, mattress, car, or the air by combining Lavender essential oil with water in a spray bottle.
  • Repel insects and soothe insect bites: Mix 4-5 drops of lavender oil into water and spray onto your skin or clothes just as a mosquito spray


  • Essential oils should always be applied after diluting with carrier oils/lotion or as mentioned in the directions to use.
  • The oils come with a leaflet with details of how to use, for more details, you can also contact our beauty experts online.
  • If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier.
  • For external use only.
  • Keep out of the reach of children.
  • Avoid contact with eyes.”

I use my Nykaa lavender oil in the following ways:

  • I mix a few drops of lavender oil with Grape seed oil or with Olive oil (say around 10 drops of essential oil with 4 spoons of carrier oil) and use this mixture as an aromatic body oil.
  • I add around 4 drops of this oil to 2 tbsp Ginseng Oil and use it for soothing my scalp, treat dryness of hair while the mixture imparts a pleasant fragrance to the hair shafts.
  • A few drops of lavender oil added to my bucket of water soothes my senses, especially after a hectic day at work; it induces relaxation.
  • Often, when I feel stressed or anxious, I add a drop or 2 of lavender oil to my pillow- This oil is well known for inducing sleep.


  • Affordable price (I got it at a flat 50 percent discount)
  • Decent packaging
  • No wastage, no leakage
  • Bottle with a dropper cap allows to take the essential oil in the required amount
  • Can be mixed with carrier oils to make hair oil or body oil of your choice
  • Imparts sweet aroma to the oil used as a carrier oil
  • Induces relaxation
  • Helps reduce stress


  • The effect on dandruff isn’t that pronounced
  • Available online (not a con for me though, I love online shopping)


Nykaa Lavender Essential Oil is a decent product that you should have in your beauty shelf, especially if you love aromatic oils and practise aromatherapy. I would like to rate it at 4 out of 5. However, like any other essential oil, this oil too must be used with caution for best benefits.


I have used Aroma Treasures Lavender oil as well. Check out the review here.
