I heard that some who are not very experienced with essential oils recommend the use of lavender cotton oil for aromatherapy. You should not deal with lavender cotton oil for any reason because its very toxic and can be dangerous. Do not purchase it for aromatherapy purposes or keep any in your home. There are many safe oils that can be used for massage, aromatherapy, even skin treatments, this one is not one of them. I just wanted to clear the air for anyone who was wondering.
