Lavender essential oil is generally seen as the most useful and versatile of all essential oils.
Popular for its calming, sedative properties, lavender oil is used in everything from bath salts to candles and skincare products.
If you're new to aromatherapy, you may not be aware of an interesting fact: lavender oil is stimulating when used in large amounts - it can wind you up instead of calm you down.
Lavender is used in skincare to balance and tone skin, and it's excellent for relieving burns, cuts, scrapes and wounds.
Lavender is one of the few essential oils considered safe to use undiluted on skin. It's also one of the few oils suitable for babies, small children and pets, when used in proper dilution, of course!
