Im guessing Lavender is one of the best known “Oils” around. The go to  calmer  so to speak. It in fact has so many other qualities.

* Historically durring Midieval times there was a dispute re Lavender. One grouping would say it help keep it wearer “pure” , shall we say, and the other group  well they felt it was an attractant, and  things would go the other way.

Lavender is a great healer of wounds, skin irritations of many sorts  and emotions.
