I love lavender because it is good for so many things!  And it is beautiful and smells good.

There are alot of good resources to learn more about essential oils. Gentle Babies is a good book for babies, children, and pregnancy. Dr Mom's essential oils first aid is another one, and the best one(although a bit pricey but totally worth it) is Essential Oils desk reference. abundanceandwisdom.com/kimreynolds is a site where you can also learn more and read about the oils that are listed here.
