Essential Oils - Lavender - Lavandula Officinals Oil

Hi dear,
since I am very interested in testing various kind of cosmetics,
I would like to start a new series on the blog,
where I show you which products I am currently using on myself.
It is not only a question of brand, the point I would like to focus on is the quality. 
So let's start this voyage with this Lavender essential oil I bought because I had terrible acarus punctures on my body!
My skin is very delicate and has reacted very badly to these punctures. 

How did I used this oil?
As an impact, I applied a pure drop on each puncture as this oil acts as a strong natural disinfectant . 
I have read on the internet that is not a good idea to use pure essential oils on skin, but lavender one is considered an exception, in the sense that it is very delicate.
By the way is always safer to test the oil on a little part of your skin.

Does it work?
The answer is yes! After two applications each puncture starts to deflate and the pricking to disappear.
Before trying this lavender I also tried some pharmacy products, without success. So this oil has resolved my problem!

The brand is Sapone di un tempo, an Italian brand!
I discovered this oil just for chance exiting a Carrefour in a shopping center; it costed me, as you can clearly see, 18.90 €, all over considered a good price for the quantity, 15 ml!

Final remarks: lavender oils works well also with pimples! I had to test it in this sense this week! 
I am very satisfied by this oil, the quality is very good and the scent is very pleasant and relaxing.

  1. Sounds good. I get terrible insect bites during the summer. These little insects are called "midges" - they are evil little flies! Someone once told me to use lavender oil on these bites. It does work. But to prevent the bites, I now use citronella oil with Avon Skin So Soft - this combination has been a god send for me! I don't know if it is my blood type or I have tasty blood, but the insects love to bite me! Nice feature to your blog Marghe. :-D

    1. Thanks a lot dear Ananka, I'm so glad you like this kind of theme! I've never heard of midges before but I can imagine how annoying could be the bites they used to do...citronella and also tea tree oil are very good repellents for insects and acaruses. After my bad experience I use to put tea tree oil everywhere in the house, in the wardrobes! ;)

  2. That sounds like a fantastic product! :)

    1. Hi dear! Yes, it works very well, especially in the case of insects bites and skin problems in general!

  3. Grazie da Sapone di un tempo! ����

  4. I am glad that it works so good. I can not remember to see such product In Carrefour here in our country, but maybe I was not attentive enough.

    1. Hi dear Andrea, I have found it in the hall of the shopping center in a momentary banket, that's why maybe you can't find it in your Carrefour. Thanks for yr visit! Hugs

  5. That's a wonderful review! I too would like to try it soon! Thanks for sharing! :-)

  6. Merghe, there is nothing better than essential oils, added in body cream. I like your review of both products. Often in the supermarkets there are excellent beauty products. Moreover, at the moment I use a day cream, bought in a supermarket which cost 10 euros. Soon, I will publish the review (so much I liked). Kisses and Happy Year 2017
