8 diy lavender recipes for women

Who made the experiment for you?

The best example to make you feel comfortable with the idea of sometimes using lavender essential oil pure… is found in the  reference litterature in the early 19th…and is still the reference when talking about aromatherapy: Mr René Gattefossé was a chemist and was doing a lot of fragances and perfumes experiments in his lab. One day his experiment turned bad, and he burned himself very badly…so badly he suffered from gazeous gangren! Antibiotics were not yet found…he had to find something before amputation. His researches let him guessing that lavender essential oil was a good antiseptic, a good healing oil too.

René Gattefossé’s life experiment with essential oil

He made the experiment of his life by plunging his hand in pure lavender essential oil. It helped him very fast with his excrutiating pain, it stopped the gangren process. It was so encouraging, he used it regularly, and his condition improved drastically!

      Thank you, your are sooooo sweet Koko. Lavender is indeed the must have essential oil. Just be sure you have the lavandula officinalis and not the aspic….which is great too but won’t have the same actions and if used too frequently…could cause some irritations….. Wonderful idea to use it on your pets….I always do too…. Even on horses legs in winter, to avoid cracks….on dogs and cats ears… But I am not surprised you like it….reading your posts…we can tell how inspired you are….always full of great ideas!!!
