Today lavender essential oil is a component of many aromatherapy blends. Lavender is the most versatile of all the essential oils and one of the
few that can be used undiluted. Lavender is capable of many important jobs and is a delight to use. Every home should have a bottle of lavender,
if no other oil, because it is so very effective in the treatment of burn and scalds. Lavender oil is a natural antibiotic, antiseptic, antidepressant,
sedative, and de-toxifier which promotes healing and prevents scarring, and also stimulates the immune system and contributes to the healing
process by stimulating the cells of a wound to regenerate more quickly. Although not known specifically as a circulatory stimulant, lavender oil
certainly seems to all the effects of clinical shock and as a mood tonic and anti-depressant it helps to deal with the psychological shock of injury. It
also has a multitude of other qualities which make it a truly indispensable oil.

Lavender's unique aroma is herbaceous and fresh, yet sweet, subtle and floral: a perfect balance of relaxing and uplifting characteristics. In fact,
according to aroma-therapists, the balancing attribute is lavender's most prevalently described aromatherapy benefit.

Lavender essential oil is steam distilled from the flowering tops of Lavendula officinalis, also known botanically as Lavendula angustifolia and
Lavendula vera. The lavender plant is native to the rocky slopes that front the Mediterranean Sea. Centuries of cultivation in the Grasse region of
southern France have produced some of the most highly developed forms of lavender plant and arguably the finest lavender essential oil in the
world. Other oil producing countries include Tasmania, Spain, Italy, England and China.

Lavender essential oil is fresh and flowery-sweet with a fleeting light fruity tone, gradually becoming more floral-herbaceous and balsamic-woody
but maintaining its sweetness and pleasantness. The oil is not very tenacious. When it dries out it leaves behind a faint, sweet-herbaceous aroma.
Good lavender oil isn't overly sharp, herbaceous, penetrating or camphoraceous.

Today lavender essential oil is a component of many aromatherapy blends. Lavender is the most versatile of all the essential oils and one of the
few that can be used undiluted. It has a sedative and tonic effect and is good at balancing and normalizing the emotions and the body’s systems.

Beat the Heat of Sunburns – with all burns, it is crucial to get the heat out of the skin, so fill a sink or bath with cold water, add ice if possible,
and immerse yourself as soon as you can. Stay under the water for at least 10 minutes, then apply lavender oil all over the burned area. If you
can’t soak in a bath at the time you can still get the heat out of your burn by soaking a cotton cloth in cold lavender ice water. Gently squeeze out
excess water and cover the burned area. It is most helpful if you have a couple sections of cotton to rotate, as one loses its coolness replace it
with a new one and place the warm one back in the ice water. Repeat this process until surface is cooled,  then apply lavender oil all over the
burned area.
