Five Reasons Lavender Oil is the Ultimate Travel Companion

After watching this video, you'll never go anywhere without lavender essential oil in your purse. Not only does it smell fabulous, but it's also great for healing a variety of ailments when you don't have your medicine cabinet nearby.

You can use it to prevent infection in scrapes and cuts, as well as to soothe rashes or other kinds of skin irritation. You can even use it to make big bites stop itching and to prevent motion sickness! Aside from the medicinal qualities the oil possesses, it can even be used as a fragrant home mist or worn as a perfume.
