Lavender oil’s reputation as a calming aromatherapy is only part of what this essential oil can do. It soothes irritated and inflamed skin, reduces sunburn irritation, and as an antioxidant,  protects the skin against environmental stressors. 

Lavender oil also has antibacterial properties that can help clear pores of acne-inducing bacteria. This oil promotes healing by reducing scarring and stimulating collagen production, which also reduces signs of aging.
