Lavender oil is a must for families

USUALLY at this time of year I finish off the countdown articles with a list of our favourite lotions and potions from the year.

However, this year I am dedicating this whole article to one of my favourites and a wildly underrated product – pure lavender oil.

As far as I am concerned lavender oil is an absolute must for every family’s first aid cabinet. In this article I will attempt to outline why this is.

Lavender oil is naturally anti-inflammatory, healing and soothing. It is also one of the few essential oils which can be put straight onto the skin without diluting.

The main reason why I always have lavender oil in my kitchen is because I am quite a clumsy chef, prone to spilling hot liquids, and forgetting that lids which have been in the oven will be very hot.
