Lavender oil

I have been a fan of lavender oil for many years as it is something that you can grab and has a use for almost anything. Yes, it's old fashioned .... but what an amazing possession it is. It has anti-viral (not many things help kill viruses), anti-bacterial, soothing and healing, relaxing .... the list seems endless. You can apply a small amount to minor burns, place a few drops into bath water, add it to vegetable oil and use as a massage. Place a few drops onto a linen square and hang in a wardrobe, cloakroom, etc to ward away the little clothes moth .... well I won't go on - you get the picture.

All I would like to know is what is happening to it? At one time you could purchase a small bottle at a reasonable price and it smelt like English lavender .... straight out of the garden. Now, you are dicing with the waft of a char lady as so many of the little bottles smell like furniture polish!!

*This is currently my favourite lavender oil.
