Lavender is one of the top essential oils to stock in your medicine cabinet at home. It is antibacterial and rejuvenating.
It’s proven to be highly effective for use on the skin – for burns, scars, cuts, bug bites and bee stings. I heard a story of someone who used it on third degree burns on the arms and was left with no scarring.
I have used it on my child who has eczema with good results. It can also be used for acne.
It’s powerful for calming the mind and body and for relieving anxiety, overcoming insomnia and improving sleep and mood.
You can mix 20 drops of lavendar oil with a cup of Epsom Salts for a relaxing bath.
I use essential oils when I massage clients so they feel the benefits.
