Lavender essential oil induces sleep and is often recommended for insomnia. It is also effective against insect bites and the oil is used to repel mosquitoes and moths. You will find many mosquito repellents containing lavender oil as one of the ingredients. Lavender has the Latin name Lavare, which means “to wash”, due to its aroma which fills a room spread with lavender oil with a clean aroma.
