Lavender reminds us of what our grandmothers used to scent dresser drawers. Lavender is one of the most versatile of the essential oils. It can treat bruises, burns, muscular pain, cuts and emotional upset.

Most oils have more than one curative function. They can be used topically as massage oils, salves and anti-bacterial cleansers or can be taken internally for digestion and cold remedies.

A useful topical oil is tea tree oil. Its ability to battle micro-organisms helps treat warts, lacerations and acne. It’s a major ingredient in toothpaste, mouthwash and shampoo.

Castor oil, evening primrose oil, ylang ylang and jojoba oils are all moisturizers included in shampoos for their ability to nourish the hair and scalp. Eucalyptus oil is commonly used for chest and sinus congestion.
