I’m always delighted by the many ways we can use lavender oil in our homes and with our families. Every home should have a bottle, or two of lavender oil! Lavender oil is very effective in the treatment of burns and scalds. Lavender oil is a natural antibiotic, antiseptic, antidepressant, sedative, and detoxifier which promotes healing and prevents scarring, and stimulates the immune system and contributes to the healing process by stimulating the cells of the wound to regenerate more quickly. Lavender oil seems to allay the effects of clinical shock and as a mood tonic it can help to deal with the psychological shock of injury. It also has a multitude of other qualities which make it a truly indispensable oil.
