Lavender essential oil is one of the most widely used essential oils. Our ancestors knew they could use Lavenders camphor floral fragrance to deodorize and “clean” clothes and bedding as well as bodies. Research has shown that Lavender essential oil does indeed have some antibacterial and antifungal activity. In addition, it is an excellent aid in healing wounds and ulcers of the skin. But that’s not all. It also has some local anesthetic properties that help to relieve pain.Lavender Essential oil can be used to relieve pain from burns and bee stings. And if that’s not enough to make you think you should have some of this oil in your medicine cabinet, new studies are showing it is useful in the treatment of antibiotics resistant bacteria like MRSA.
