Our lavender flowers are steeped in spirits to allow the beneficial essential oils to gently infuse. We use tincture to soothe sunburns, insect bites and irritated skin. Our kids joke that if anything is wrong we always say, "I'll get the tincture." On our family trip to Baja, we used it for insect bites and sunburn. It is an absolute necessity for the family first aid box. 1 fl. oz.
