Lovely Lavender: A scent that rests the soul
Come on a journey with us and experience all that lavender has to offer. This gorgeous, purple flower offers a wide range of benefits for the mind, body and soul.
When it’s in plant form, it offers soothing qualities and a unique floral scent that can be spread around the house, grown in the garden, or even added to dessert items. As an essential oil form, lavender can be used to assist with sleep, skin and hair conditions, aromatherapy, anxiety and insomnia. There are many other potential benefits on one’s health when using lavender, so keep in mind that everybody is different and what works for one person might not work for another.
For those who are in love with skincare and beauty, it’s all too easy to add a few drops of this essential oil into your regime with lavender thought to assist with acne and act as a natural astringent to calm swelling – Just remember when using any oil on the skin to ‘stay out of the sun!’ as you’ll be more susceptible to sunburn (an no-one wants that).
If sleep is a concern lavender may be just the thing to send you into a restful slumber. A single drop of this essential oil, onto your pillow or night clothes, should do the trick and be far more effective than counting sheep. Alternatively, a light mist onto the face before bedtime may be the trick to relaxing your mind, body and soul.
In keeping with a lavender theme, we couldn’t help but mention our Salts and Co Australia Pure Epsom and Lavender Bath Salts. This naturally dried lavender and Epsom bath salt combo will have you melting away into a heavenly bliss. Lavender works wonders when it comes to assisting with sleep, so make sure you don’t zone out in the tub! For extra relaxation, why not play some peaceful music where you can clear your mind and let the lavender do the talking.
Invest in your health and wellbeing by letting lavender take the lead. The health benefits will be so worth it, and you get to relax in the process. You will feel rejuvenated in no time!
