Lavender… The Swiss Army Knife
Let’s begin with the “Swiss army knife of essential oils”…Lavender! It’s impossible to count the uses of YL’s Lavender oil. It has hundreds of uses, hence the swiss army knife reference. Lavender has a fresh sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it. Ever.
