  1. Burns: apply 2-3 drops to soothe the pain of a minor burn.
  2. Calm: diffuse or rub a couple of drops in your hands and inhale to calm the mind.
  3. Sleep aid: same method in as # 2, or rub oil on your hands and transfer to pillow!
  4. Cuts/scrapes: apply directly to the injury to stop bleeding and clean the wound.
  5. Bee stings/insect bites: put a drop on a bite or sting to reduce swelling and stop irritation.
  6. Chapped lips or skin: rub oil on for relief.
  7. Scent your laundry: put a few drops on a dryer sheet to scent your clothes.
  8. Eczema/dermatitis: mix with a carrier oil and use topically for eczema or dermatitis.
