    Lavender is high on my list of favorite oils!! One of four universal oils along with juniper, helichrysum, and ravansara it can’t be beat! If I’m unsure in almost any situation of what oil to use, I start with it. I don’t leave home without it!

      Same here, Susan. It’s my go-to oil in the kitchen for accidental burns and cuts.
