Research has shown that individuals who regularly use essential oils not only have a higher resistance to colds, flu and other diseases, but actually recover 60-75% faster if they do contract an illness than those who don’t use essential oils.
Lavender oil is generally recognized as the most versatile of all essential oils. It is best known for its antiseptic, bactericidal, analgesic, and antidepressant properties. However, one of the most valuable benefits may be its abilities to calm, soothe and balance.
Lavender has been used for thousands of years by cultures around the world. It is native to the Mediterranean area but has flourished in other areas since the Europeans were introduced to it by the Romans.

- skin care

- improving respiratory health
- relieving menstrual pain
- promoting healing
