Keeping Infections At Bay – Antiseptic Lavandin Oil

I once used this antiseptic liquid of a very high-end reputed company…and my knee got burnt…you know I didn’t read it on it’s label that I had to firstly dilute the qiuid iwith water…and I applied neat…result…I still bear that ugly brown patch on the skin of my knee…

Anyway…I had heard a lot about this Lavandin oil…but had never used it…But when I did…I had to be happy with its application…it

I had initially thought that it was just me…But to my surprise I found that there are a lot of  people who choose to use natural remedies like essential oils to resolve health problems rather than using prescription drugs….That’s actually a very good thing…There are good options…but they only go so far…and there are some risks….The best choice being Lavandin oil…
