Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender is known for its unmistakable aroma and its ability to create a calm and soothing environment. In ancient times, the Egyptians and Romans used Lavender for mummification, bathing, relaxation, cooking, and as a perfume. Inhaling Lavender promotes relaxation, making it an ideal oil to diffuse at bedtime.
Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
