'Lavender is a brilliant all-rounder essential oil,' says our friend Geraldine Howard (of Aromatherapy Associates).  'It is the only essential oil you should apply neat to the skin.  I take it on holiday - it's great as an on-the-spot treatment for insect bites.  It's also phenomenal for healing burns.  If you're in the kitchen and have an oven burn, you can spot-apply lavender.'
