This is my first time using an essential oil. I was pleasantly surprised by the packaging that included some little hints and instructions. The aroma of this lavender oil is absolutely amazing. The scent is not overwhelming and I feel like its spring already!!!! I placed a few drops in my bath Friday night and it left my skin silky smooth. I’ve also used this to calm me by placing a few drops into the cups of my hands and inhaling. It made me feel so much better. I did put some also in my hands and swiped by pillow before bedtime. I’ve been sleeping like an angel since then. I am looking forward to using this product for other symptoms in the future as I hear its good for bee stings but I hope I don’t get stung by one any time soon!
