Lavender oil has been the most popular essential oil for centuries. I remember my gran using dried lavender in bags in her linen drawers, I have dried lavender and used it in potpourri.
The essential oil has many uses
Skin – sunburn, bruises, insect bites, cuts.
circulation – muscle aches and pains.
nervous system – stress headache, insomnia.
You can put a few drops on a handkerchief or a piece of kitchen roll and slip it into you pillowcase for a relaxing nights sleep.
Lavender oil is one of the essential oils that you can put directly onto your skin. Very effective for minor burns.
