Lavender holds a soothing, sweet, floral-herbaceous scent with a balsamic-woody undertone. Altogether it has a very tranquilizing and reassuring smell.
Lavender has so many amazing uses. It's great for soothing burns, cuts or bruises as it is antibacterial and also helps relieve pain. If you're sick and have trouble breathing, inhaling lavender (diffusing is ideal) helps open up sinuses and airways.
Lavender can also be used to help you sleep, and a great deodorizer for linens (mix a few drops in a spray bottle filled with distilled water).
Lavender essential oil is also great for repelling insects, and soothing acne when applied topically.
