Detailed Description and Specifications
Lavender is a highly versatile ‘first aid’ oil. Healing, soothing, and antiseptic properties make it the first choice for minor burns and wounds, itchy bites and aggravated skin conditions including dry, scaly skin and helping prevent acne. For general skin care Lavender is good for all skin types.
Perhaps the most well known and popular of all the essential oils, and for good reason. Lavender has been used for thousands of years for its healing, antiseptic and calming properties. Lavender oil likely sparked modern interest in therapeutic essential oils after the ‘father of aromatherapy’, René-Maurice Gattefossé, attributed the healing of his hand to Lavender. He went on to successfully use it in on wounded soldiers in the First World War.
