Did you know that Lavender essential oil has burn healing properties?
I have used lavender essentail oil on myself and on my family for years to help sunburns and other types of burns.
Properties of Lavender Essential Oil
Antidepressant, sedative, natural antibiotic, and antiseptic.
Lavender also has detoxifying qualities, which promote healing and prevents scar tissue.
"Natural Lavender essential oil “stimulates the immune system and contributes to the healing process by stimulating the cells of a wound to regenerate more quickly.”
The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy” by Valerie Ann Worwood
Simple to use for Sunburn
Depending upon the size of the area, with your hand, apply between 2-5 drops of natural lavender essential oil directly on top of clean skin 1-2 times a day for 2-3 days only. For burns, apply the Lavender essential oil directly to your skin and do not mix it with any oils or lotions.
PLEASE DO NOT GET IT NEAR OR IN YOUR EYES! Wash your hands with soap and water after use.
Lavender is one of the FEW essential oils that can be applied directly to the skin. For other essential oils it is important to mix them with a carrier oil before applying to your skin. Carrier oils “carry the essential oil into the skin.” They are a base oil, or a vegetable oil. It is used to dilute essential oils before they are massaged into the skin. Carrier oils do not contain a concentrated aroma.
Keeping Essential oils Fresh
Keep in the original dark glass bottle it came in, with lid tightly closed.
Store in a cool, dark area. (It is best not to store in your bathroom or in your car, due to the heat and/or moisture that occures there.)

It is my goal to support companies that engage in natural practices and have clear communication with their products ingredients. I hope this list will help make your research a little easier.
