I recently read an article about Lavender essential oil, that I found really interesting. It cites quite a few studies and has several interesting applications in skin care. Admittedly, there is a lot of science and maybe more information than you are looking for, but I found it helpful and informative. The study that I found the most interesting was the effect that lavender oil had on MRSA establishing itself on our skin. I know someone who struggles with this, and am anxious to share the information with them.
Other topics that are addressed are: Athlete’s Foot, Ringworm, Burns, Bee Stings and UV damage. I hope you find it interesting and helpful! The link is listed below.
P.S. I am not advocating this in place of qualified medical care, as always seek professional help for any medical needs you may have.
