Lavender - It was Rene-Maurice Gattefosse who observed the healing effects of lavender oil when he burnt his hand in a laboratory accident, and it is still used today for burns including in hospitals, for it's pain relieving, antiseptic & skin healing properties.

Therapeutic effects - Lavandula comes from the Latin word lavare, meaning to wash, which is particularly appropriate because Lavender is so deeply cleansing in so many ways. It is a wonderful antiseptic and since it can be used neat on the skin, it is very useful for applying directly to cuts and sores – great for children and an essential addition to first aid kits. It also helps relieve pain and itching, as well as speeding the healing process. It is also an etheric antiseptic, so doesn’t just cleanse the body on a physical level, but on an energetic level too.
