My 3 favourite essential oils

lavender ~Lavender
Lavender is antibacterial, antiviral, soothes burns and any kind of rash or itch. It is a great relaxant, unless you can’t stand the smell like my father in-law! I love it, and have found that it can help me fall asleep.
~Tea Tree
Tea tree oil is fantastic for any kind of cut or scrape, it has incredible antibacterial properties. It is great for skin blemishes, and insect bites. I have found it soothes tick and mosquito bites like almost nothing else!

Eucalyptus oil is my go-to oil when I or my hubby have a head cold. A couple of drops on a handkerchief, or even along the edge of the bed sheet will clear sinuses and sooth itchy noses. It’s also great for cleaning bathrooms, toilets, and stain removal in the laundry.
