Lavender, or Lavandula augustifolia, one of the ingredients in Four Thieves Vinegar, has long been used to fight infectious diseases powerfully yet gently; it’s safe for adults and children alike. We love Lavender for its potent anti-bacterial properties as well as its amazing ability to soothe the nervous system and help activate the body’s healing energies.
