Uses for Lavender Oil

LAVENDER – (Lavandula angustifolia) is the most versatile of all essential oils. It has been prized historically for the skin, but is also famous for its relaxing and mood elevating effects. It may be used to cleanse cuts, bruises and skin irritations. The fragrance is calming, relaxing and balancing — physically and emotionally. This plant is grown and distilled at the Young Living Farms in the U.S. and France.
