It can be safely applied to a broad array of conditions; to soothe burns, take the sting out of insect bites, calm headaches and anxiety, as well as invigorate the senses.

- I am so picky with Lavender essential oil but I like this one. I use Lavender oil all the time. It's one of the most important oils in my medicine box. My little cut heals so much faster. I can't wait to try another type of Lavender oil! (Posted on 2/26/13)
