Panic. The feeling that you are consumed with when your bottle of lavender runs out several days before your new one arrives. (please note: this is only a slight exaggeration) This little purple bottle is my friend. I don’t know how I survived without it. You’re wondering why, right?
Before having children, I always joked that if I were to ever have a boy, I would need to immediately enroll myself in first aid classes. My little blessings just so happens to have the most adventurous daddy in the world. Oh, the stories that man can tell…and oh, the injuries he has to show for them. I knew a little boy would inevitably mimic his daddy and let’s just say like father, like son. Lavender is the go to oil for scrapes, cuts, burns and bites. We have at least one of these occurring on a daily basis in our home and, as a result, lavender is the oil we use the most around here.

Not accident prone? Lavender has so many other different uses as well. I use it every day to clean my face and it smells wonderful! There’s more, too:
Bottom line: we love lavender and I know that you will too! Let me know if you want more information on what these oils can do for you!
