    If pure lavender oil then its better dabbed on. Lavender buy a little spray from Superdrug.

    Be careful with neat lavender when applying to your skin (if this is your aim) as it is a known irritant. Try a patch test first on the inside of your arm/elbow to see if anything happens if you have not already.

    Thanks for the useful replies so far. It won't go anywhere near the skin.
    Which sprayers / atomisers would you recommend for using with undiluted Lavender please?

    Undiluted lavender is in oil so you cannot really spray it, it will clog up the nozzle.

    Lavender is one of the very few which can be used neat on the skin. Tea Tree is the other. Usually to spray it will have to be in a water/alcohol dilution

    Thanks Donna, any ideas what is the max in percentage terms of Lavender you can get away with, before any issues arise?
