  • Add 2-3 drops to your bathwater at the end of a long day.
  • Lavender’s anti-inflammatory, skin-healing properties will help heal burns, bug bites, wounds, bee stings, rashes, acne, and skin irritations.  Add a 1-3 drops to a tablespoon of your favorite unscented lotion and apply to any skin irritation.   And as always, inhale and enjoy the wonderful aroma.
