A digestive remedy often recommended by aromatherapists is to massage 5 drops of lavender oil in 25ml of carrier oil (jojoba, sweet almond or grapeseed) gently into the abdomen in a clock-wise motion. The soothing properties of the oil are absorbed through the skin and the massage helps increase blood flow to this area.

Lavender has been long-used to keep moths and insects away from clothes, by placing lavender pillows or sachets in draws or in between bed sheets.
