I actually recommend calendula for dry or sensitive skin. I use the petals, but have recently found a calendula extract at Brambleberry. I do put oatmeal in with my calendula. Also good for dry or sensitive skin is beeswax and also honey.

Are you asking about essential oils, or the carrier oils?
Lavender is wonderful in a salve, but it's the oils and butters that are added to it that makes a great salve.
I love olive oil, Shea butter, cocoa butter and mango butters for salves.
