Oh Lavender How We Love Thee!


Lavender is an evergreen woody shrub that is native to France and the Western Mediterranean. Lavender is very aromatic, herbaceous, woody and slightly sweet. The whole plant can be used. There are many types of Lavender but the best for aromatherapy and healing is Lavandula Angustifolia also known as English Lavender. The plant is steam distilled to extract the essential oil.
Lavender essential oil has wonderful healing properties for the skin and body. It helps relieve itchy skin and acne. Lavender essential oil has natural antibacterial and antidepressant properties. The essential oil works wonders on bug bites. Just rub a dab on the bug bite and the itch and pain is gone. I always take Lavender essential oil when we go camping.
A cup of Lavender tea is very soothing and is wonderful after a stressful day, it really helps you unwind and relax. It is a staple in my tea cabinet, I couldn’t do without it. Lavender essential oil is a great headache reliever also. You can rub a small amount on your forehead to make your nasty headache go away. (Always test on a small patch of skin first to be sure it does not irritate your skin.) If you are having difficulty sleeping a cup of Lavender tea will send you off to dream land in no time. If you have tummy troubles Lavender tea does a great job of making your tummy feel better. Lavender’s aromatherapy benefits are calming, relaxing, reviving and balancing. This is one powerful herb.
We love Lavender so much because it has so much to offer that is why we use it in our soaps. Our lavender soap is so calming and stress reducing. We have added dried lavender buds to our soap to round out the fragrance and provide gentle exfoliation. The fragrance of this soap is so lovely, the lavender really comes through.
