    I've used essential oil of lavender to treat burns and cuts on people and cats. I once used it to fix a cat's paw after the cat walked across a hot stove. The lavender oil has antiseptic properties, reduces swelling, does not burn, and promotes healing (assuming you have the kind that isn't made with an alcohol extraction)

    Is it good for chickens too?

    I have used it for my chickens and other livestock that we have and it has worked great. I like to mix it with a carrier oil like olive or jojoba oil.
