    It’s great on insect bites, it takes the itch out of the bite, although it does need re-applying every 3-4 hours.

    I put lavender oil in a spray bottle with water a spritz my bedding before I sleep and I always have a more restful night. I also pu it into my anxiety candles and it has an immediate calming effect.

    Lavender is such a powerful essential oil and is wonderful to calm and relax your body and mind. I love to light a lavender candle whilst soaking in a hot bath before bed. It guarantees a restful sleep every time.
