Lavender aromatherapy oil

I am going to start shortly Humira injections. I have used aromatherapy extensively for a lot of years and when i have any injections or have my blood taken, i do not bruise after putting lavender on the place where the needle went. also when i have accidents like shutting a door on my finger bruising goes within a day, due to the lavender. my question is, that because of the many warnings with humira, does anybody know if it is safe to put on lavender oil on the injection site?

thanks for any info
I wouldn't see why not.. I'd use it after you inject tho, because you want to have clean skin when you're sticking a needle into your tissue. I use the Digestzens Oil from Doterra quite a bit tho and it seems to help for certain symptoms.
