Lavender oil is extracted mostly from the flowers of the lavender plant. The oil is very useful in aromatherapy and many aromatic preparations and combinations. It also blends well with many other essential oils. Lavender oil is believed to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to heal minor burns and bug bites. Research suggests that it may be useful for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness.
(Please note: Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids that can be harmful if not used carefully and properly, and may cause irritation when applied to the skin. We encourage you to dilute oils at all times with any carrier oil and exercise caution when using them. We do not recommend using essential oils internally.)
