Tri Nature Customer & Naturopathy Student Ashlee Adam raves about Lavender Essential Oil. Here’s why she loves it:
“Lavender oil is the oil I use most! It’s the best all rounder oil, great for so many things! We use for treating cuts and burns, as it has antimicrobial properties. Great for relieving stress and anxiety and will improve sleep, and I also use it every day in my skin care routine along with frankincense, due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ability, to help reduce the signs of ageing. Just add a few drops to your daily moisturiser or precious facial oil!” - Ashlee A.
