Pillow Talk—let lavender lull you to sleep

Lavender is known as a soothing and calming essential oil. It has a pleasant aroma, one almost everyone is familiar with. If you are having trouble sleeping, one helpful remedy would be to put a few drops of essential oil of lavender on your pillow (or on a handkerchief ), and let the relaxing melody of this essence soothe you to sleep. It makes a nice addition to your travel bag since traveling often means a poor night’s sleep.

Lavender is also very soothing to burns. For instance, if you have burned yourself on a hot stove or an iron, lavender will quickly take out the burning sensation. My number one recommendation for sunburns is aloe vera gel, but for any other kind of burn lavender works wonders.
