"My favorite way to enjoy Lavender is in the evening in a cup of hot water with some agave stirred in!! It's a wonderful prelude to a good nights sleep!!!" -- Kathie

“My neighbor had a horrible flea problem in her home but did not want to use harsh chemicals. She massaged one to two drops of lavender essential oil on the back of her dog's ears, and diluted several drops with water in a spray bottle and sprayed it over her dog's bedding. Within hours, the fleas were gone.”

"Here is my Lavender testimonial! I have used Lavender for many different challenges (good night's sleep, drippy nose and especially burns). While making myself a Hot Fudge Sundae one day, I accidentally tipped the jar slightly and hot, bubbly fudge sauce coated all four fingers of my left hand. The pain was unbelievable. I immediately rinsed off the fudge with cold water. Then grabbed my bottle of Lavender and put a couple drops on each finger and massaged it in. Almost, immediate relief. Two hours later I repeated the Lavender and went to bed. In the morning, all four fingers showed no signs of a burn. The skin was not pink or tight with movement. I will always keep a bottle of Lavender in the kitchen for burns and cuts and, of course, one bottle in the bedroom for a peaceful sleep. Thank you for letting me share!"

"A man that I work with had cut his finger on a saw. He showed me the finger and it looked horrible. It was a big gash that was standing open. I happened to have my Lavender at work, so I dripped some on. He came up the next morning, all smiles. He unwrapped his finger and showed me the cut. It had completely closed up! And that was with only one application." -- Edith Chupp

"I've just got to tell this story. I was stung about 25 times by a swarm of bees today. I was jogging with my dog and we must have run into their nest. I was with my mom and ran three blocks back to house, she sprayed me down with a hose, took out the stingers that were still left on me, and inspected the damage. I had huge welts all over my things, buttocks, hands, and head. The welts were red and swelling up by the minute. My mom wanted me to go to Doctors on Duty to get a cortisone shot but all I wanted was my oils. She had lavender oil in her medicine cabinet so I started with that. The pain calmed down immediately. I knew I wanted Purification because I was stung by one bee several months ago and the purification helped. My sister drove me to my house (just a few blocks away) and I applied Purification to all my welts. Within two minutes the swelling was visibly going down and within 10 minutes all swelling was gone.
Still a little redness, but very little pain. It's now 2 hours later and I feel great! I've been able to go about the rest of my day like nothing happened!"
