Love this lavender. Lavender is that great fix all to always have around
Stock up with this oil if you need a remedy for burns. It has saved me and my children so many times from burns. It gives such fast relief. I never liked the smell of lavender oil until I tried this brand. It must be because it's such a quality brand.
One of my favorites!
Acne, burns, tranquility, sleep. I have tried lavender from many companies, Now, Young Living etc.. this easily compares if not surpasses their quality.
This is my go to oil! It's so relaxing and stress relieving to diffuse and massage with. It has an incredible amount of beneficial uses. And it's the most real and potent lavender I've used compared to any other brand.
