Lavender oil is an essential oil, distilled from the flower spikes or leaves of lavender. It is used as a component in many perfumes, and in aromatherapy. The scent has a calming effect, relaxing and reducing anxiety. It relieves pain from tension headaches when rubbed on the skin or breathed as a vapour. When added to a vaporizer, it may aid in the treatment of coughs and respiratory infections. On the skin, it may be used as a mosquito repellent, and to relieve mosquito bites.

YES Lavender Oil Lavandula Angustifolia is an old time remedy for mites. It kills all stages from egg to adult. Mix it with shampoo to wash hair... add to a small amount of conditioner and massage well into scalp and leave on hair. Add to alcohol and spay on mattress when changing bedding... also on sheets when you get up and before going to bed.
