Description and Uses: This Eastern European Lavender essential oil is a great lavender – my favorite, in fact. Some believe the lavender oil from Provence is the best, but I prefer the scent of this one as do some of my other lavender converts.
Lavender is the most versatile of essential oils. It is relaxing and refreshing, uplifts the spirits, and helps to relieve the distress of muscle pain. No home should be without it. Lavender balances your body and mind, calming or uplifting according to your body’s needs. Excellent for refreshing tired muscles, feet and head. Add a drop of the essential oil on a pillow/sheet before peaceful sleep. My boyfriend jokes that when I lie on my pillow, lavender oil drips out. Treats burns and reduces scarring. I’ve tested that out myself and it’s true. Can be used neat in small amounts on burns, but care still needs to be taken.
Cautions: None known.
