Lavender is one of the most versatile essential oils. As a result of this and a recent boost of publicity sales of the amazing oils are going through the roof.
One of the many properties it has is an aid to healing. It's one of only three oils that I would recommend you to use neat. Always, Always dilute oils before use with the exception of Tea tree, Lavender and Chamomile (TLC).
If you have a nasty bruise or a cut that's starting to heal just pop a few drops of lavender oil onto a piece of cotton wool or tissue and dab neat onto the wound. Apply twice daily this should decrease the healing time.
