It's a miracle oil! Over a year ago, I was broken out all over my face - including tons of scars. I had tried every expensive and affordable product and treatment under the sun. I received dozens of facials and peels, nothing worked. I picked, washed, moisturized my face all the time...basically I was a mess. I ended up having a really great facial from Ummelina in Seattle. My gal recommended if I do nothing else, add 100% pure lavender oil to all my products (10-20 drops) - cleanser, moisturizer, foundation, etc. Within days I was cleared up, my scars were lightening up, and for the first time in years I could go without makeup! Now my skin is clear and feels great. I still have the random blemish, but I always know how to treat. I swear by this stuff - it works!

The previous reviewer may not like the smell of lavender but that dosen't mean lavender oil dosen't work.
I've been using lavender oil for healing my acne, reducing scars and keeping my skin clear.
I have used is straight and also with avacodo oil.
Straight is very potent and I do this on scarring and for healing burns and acne, with the oil at night as a moisturizer--skin soother and healer.

No matter how many times people say this oil is great the smell gives me and many people I know instant images of lavender candy eating old ladies with blue/pink hair rinses.
Mixed with something else so yu cannot smell it is great but alone for anyone under 50 is a definitely no-no. Better bet is ylang ylang.essential oil. At least it smells like a hot scent.

I have always used Lavender Oil, as does my mom, I learned from her. So many uses! Most of which are listed in other reviews, so I'll just say that yes, it works wonders no matter what you use it for! But most importantly, I have begun the use of lavender and jojoba on my acne prone skin and it is so calming and healing! My skin looks better than it has in a long time! And I just started a couple weeks ago! I highly recomend!

I may have the biggest collections of lavender oil on this side of the Bay. Not only do I have the oil, the lotions but I also have several plants in my backyard and dry my own to use in sachets, eye mask, etc. and give to friends and family. But, I use it mostly for medicinal purposes. When I get an insect bite, i rub a little on the bite area and it eliviate the swelling and the itch within minutes. I get a paper cut, I place a small amount on the cut, put a bandage and within in minutes no pain and heals the next day! I also use it on small cuts. You know that ones - that appear out of no where and you wonder, when/how did I get this??? I have a bottle of this in every room in house and office. Sunburn, place a few drops in my favorite lotion, when I can't find my lavender lotion and spread on the burn area and the next day I get smooth skin and no sunburn. I also use it when I'm cooking and get splatter by hot oil. I just rub a little on the area and no pain within minutes and no sign of the burn the next day. During the summer, I mix a few drops of this in bottled water and place in a cool spot for a week. Then, I place the lavender water in fridge. During the heat of the day and I need a little refreshing mist, this will do the job. At night, I use the eye mask I've made with flax seed and dried lavender to gently ease me to sleep. I also place the dried flowers in a pouch - I use a lavender colored mesh fabric - hang it around around as decorative item and will give the room a fresh smell and get rid of mosquitoes. If you love the scent of lavender, this is way of adding it in your home without actually wearing the scent on you. BTW... A bad mosquito bit me on the way to my car this morning...on my face! I placed a tiny amount of lavender on the area (I have a small bottle in my purse) and by the time I got to work, it was gone and no itch once I dab the lavender oil on it.

I have been practising aromatherapy for 13 years and lavender oil was one of my first oils...yesterday I just purchased another one. I get through loads of the stuff!
To help me get to sleep I use two drops on my pillow; I'm always careful not to use more as it becomes a stimulant in high doses. This works 90% of the time when I can't quite drop off.
This is amazing for burns; I do a lot of cooking and inevitably it happens now and then. The first thing I do is run my burn under the cold tap and then shake on a few drops of neat oil. The pain is relieved straight away on most occasions, although I need to use ice as well if it's a bad one. Normally no scarring will result.
This is a lovely oil for general relaxation, it can be used in the bath (about 6-8 drops), for a massage when diluted in a carrier oil or burned in a vapouriser. It blends well with most other essential oils as well, such as those distilled from flowers, fruits, spices and herbs.
I always take a bottle on holiday, it works on rashes, cuts, grazes and bites but also as a repellent (by the way, it repels moths from your clothing drawers and wardrobes)!
Lavender has fantastic antiviral and antibacterial properties so it's great when you or someone else has a cold and you need to disinfect the air...door handles.. etc.
Be careful to only buy pure essential oils from a reputable seller/company or they could be dangerous, or at best, ineffective, especially as some are adulterated with cheap oils.
I love this!

I like lavender oil to use in steaming my face, and to burn for the scent, but I wasn't all that impressed when used on my face. It definitely needs to be diluted or it will really burn, so I mixed it with my moisturizer. It hasn't made me breakout, but I have noticed I have more clogged pores but I'm not sure if it's because of the oil. I have noticed though that it gets rid of redness, which is why I would still use it. I will probably use it to make an oil mixture with emu oil, but it's not all that amazing by itself in my opinion.

Wow is all I can say!!! This stuff is great... All my time I have been looking for some kind of cream that I can put on my face that will not irratate my really really sensitive acne prone and rosacea skin and all the money I have wasted on all these rubbish creams in the shops that are full of harmful chemicals and make the skin so much worse. i first of all put jojoba oil on then put on the lavender, especially on angry spots or redness. its amazing stuff and I will always use it from now on. Seriously my skin is so so sensitive so if its okay on mine it will be fine with anyone i should think with acne. Try it on a small area first. And it really does make you sleep and the smell is great. Just wish I had started using this stuff years ago. So much betta than any doctor could prescribe.

I use this oil (along with others) in my facial steam, which I do once or twice a week. My skin always glows afterwards, and the scent of lavender is so refreshing and calming. Highly recommended.
Other good oils for skin: Rosemary, Rose, chamomile
Clary sage, peppermint, ylang ylang, clove, (used sparingly in facial steam; too much is not good).

I love lavender oil and use it in my bath once in a while or straight on cuts. It has a soothing scent and I read somewhere that the Romans would use it to purify the air naturally from germs. I even mix lavender with shea butter to make a homemade body butter. Overall, it has many purposes and is perfect to place in a first-aid kit or your bathroom for beauty treatments.

Beautiful scent, so calming, fresh and floral. Makes me think of endless purple fields, maybe somewhere in Provence. Lavender essential oil has anti-inflammatory qualities and can be used for treating insect bites and burns. It is also known to be a mosquito repellent when worn as perfume. I only use it diluted with carrier oils, it's pretty strong on its own.

This is great stuff. My face was feeling very irrated - dry, itchy w/pimples here and there. After applying this for a couple of days my face looks and feels alot clearer and calmer and my blemishes are slowly clearing up. I have also been using this on my new piercings which I got done three months ago. They have been very slow to heal despite all the prescribed care. Anyway, one, my navel, had become sore, red and weepy. I applied lavendar oil to it last night and woke up this morning with no redness or pain!! My helix (cartilage) has also been extremely painful to the touch but after after applying lavender oil the pain has been much reduced. I'm so happy I found this oil! Big thanks to MUA-ers who reviewed this ;-D It's def. a keeper!

Wow. I originally bought this for another purpose but decided to use it on my face one night. I had some small, finicky blemishes on my forehead that refused to clear up - they were not red, just tiny raised bumps. I had been applying a topical acne medication on them, but decided to use lavender essential oil on them. The next morning, every bump was completely gone. Absolutely amazing. The next night I applied it all over my face - about 3-5 drops of Lavender. I mixed it with an olive oil base because otherwise, it is too drying for my skin. The next morning my skin was clear and bright - no redness, no blemishes. I am going to continue using this forever and ever and hope it keeps working. I almost can't believe it. I haven't seen results like this from any product, ever. Wonderful!

Lavender essential oil is magic. One time a few years ago, I placed a drop on a pimple that had popped and it was nearly completely gone by the next morning. Last night I tried something brand new - after using a facial cleanser, I moistened a cotton pad and added a couple drops of lavender, and then used that as my toner. This morning, all of the redness from my irritated skin was back to normal. I didn't have to use concealer on my cheeks at all today; yesterday, I had to pack it on. I couldn't believe the results and can't wait to try it again tonight. Like I said, it's magic!

I started with lavender bc its safe and effective. I agree with all other reviewers. Now I have cypress, lemon grass, geranium, etc. I mix my own night lotion using essential oils, carrier oil and aloe vera. Aloe vera makes the oily thing creamier and easier to apply.
If it stop working after a while, take a break and exfoliate with a gentle peel mask.
Buy the expensive lavender oils. The cheap ones smell bad and don't work as well.
Avoid using lavender oil in the day bc it's light sensitive.

LONG REVIEW AHEAD!
I developed a love for lavender oil and lavender scented stuff when I was studying in Australia. Trips down to Cape Lavender in Margaret River further confirmed it. So a couple of days ago, I was looking through my bottles of skincare and thinking why isnít there anything I can apply on my pimples to make them go away almost overnight. Imagine, I had more than 15 products but yet nothing???
Then I spotted bottles of essential oil sitting in a corner - tea tree oil and lavender oil. Iíve tried tea tree oil but it did nothing. So I decided to try lavender oil, neat, on my pimples. Essential oil can be drying so I only applied it on problem areas and not all over. The scent was putting me into a deep sleep within minutes - so relaxing. I woke up the next morning to much subsided pimples. Some of the deep pimples have also come to a head - great news for me cos theyíve been there underneath the skin since forever!
Having seen great results on my first try, I applied the EO again the following night. Once again, the same results yielded in the morning. And surprisingly, my scars were much lighter than before! Itís almost like lavender oil is some sort of a miracle oil, healing my inflammed pimples and treating those post-inflammation scars at the same time!
Wondering why did lavender oil work so well for my pimples, I Googled the many uses of lavender EO. Here are just some of the properties of lavender EO:
No wonder!!! Its antiseptic properties help to kill acne-causing bacteria quickly and reduce swelling and redness. Its scent also helps to lift moods and calm the anxious.

I love mixing a drop of organic lavender into my moisturiser. I was having horrible persistent acne for MONTHS and I couldnt figure out why. Tea tree oil just felt dry and gross on my skin and made everything smell strange. I heard lav was great for acne or inflammation so I tried it. WONDERFUL results! My skin has a gorgeous even rosy tone, a glow, my pores look clean and tighter, no new pimples and my already-there pimples are healing so fast. It helped my moisturiser to sink in faster, PLUS the scent helps me fall asleep at night. Its anti inflammatory which helps soothe skin and antibacterial which helps clean skin.
I totally recommend giving it a try. Just make sure to buy a high quality organic and buy in small amounts so it stays fresh longer. LOVELY

Lavendar Essential Oil is a calming scent. I mix it with Epsom Salts and put it in a beautiful container near my bath. The oil suffuses into the salt and when you need a luxurious soak, add about 1/4 cup to the hot bath...mmmmm... you will feel so relaxed!

Ditto everything kekecat said. Lavender essential oil should be in everyone's arsenal. I like using a combination of lavender and tea tree oil on pimples--as effective as over-the-counter stuff loaded with chemicals and preservatives. I also add a few drops to baths and massage oils and use it to scent my linens when I'm ironing.

I always have some Lavender essential oil kicking around my home and that's because its bloody marvelous! Its a brilliant all rounder - has antibacterial properties so great for skin care. Great on burns and other minor wounds and smells delightful. I could list all day but I won't so just google it. My personal use is for on the spot treatment and rubbed on temples to stop a headache - doesn't stop migraines though!
Aromatherapy is a bit challenging so this is a great starter oil and does just about everything. It is a dryish oil in that it isn't too greasy and absorbs quite quickly. Lavender is also one of the few oils that can be used neat on the skin, however if you have very sensitive skin I suggest diluting it with a base oil for safety.
