Hint 1: I will run this hint again once summer is here

Use a few drops of lavender oil on exposed skin (definitely
wrists and ankles) before going out into the trenches, AKA
anyplace where mosquitoes rule the night! This will keep
those blood-sucking jerks at bay, plus sooth the itching of
any existing bites. Lavender oil is also known to stop
bleeding, making it perfect if you have a nasty bite that
broke the skin. Hands down, lavender oil is a key player in
your war against mosquitoes this summer. It certainly smells way better than drugstore bug spray!


Hint 2:

It's also super handy to have around when you burn yourself in the kitchen (which, in my case, is every time I cook). After keeping the burn under running water for a few minutes, add a few drops of lavender oil to the burn. The lavender oil can help accelerate the healing process and soothe that uncomfortable fiery sensation.

Hint 3:

Sometimes, adults and children get ear aches. Using a warm compress, add a few drops of Lavender oil to the warm, wet compress and massage the areas around and behind the ears, and the sides of the neck under the jaw-line, following the path starting behind the ear lobes. This can help relieve and reduce inflammation around the Eustachian tubes that drains the ears to the throat.
