Since ancient times lavender has been used in soaps for its refreshing scent and anti-bacterial properties. It is well known for its relaxing properties- a few drops on a pillowcase or behind the neck before bed can help with insomnia. Application to the forehead can ease tension and headaches.
A little known use of lavender oil is that it is helpful for sunburns. Put baking soda and a few drops of lavender into a glass jar as an air freshener.
