I just love the benefits of lavendar oil. Started making my own a few years ago. I grow and end of summer I put together for my own personal use and give a few away as gifts. I keep bottle right in my bathroom, use after showering, add to bath especially for grandaughter who has extremely dry skin, also helps to tire girls out. I also add to water bottle for air freshner. So many uses!
