Lavender, you beauty, the reasons why we love you

Lavender, you beauty, the reasons why we love you


Lavender is our number one fragrance oil of choice for our bath bomb kits and it's no wonder why. Lavender, in my opinion, sure is tip top. This wonderful purple herb, connected to the mint family, has been in use for over 2,500 years, the Romans using lavender to scent their baths, beds, clothes and hair.

Here are some medicinal and therapeutic uses:

1. Lavender oil is said to soothe and heal insect bites, sunburn, and even acne. Mix one or two drops of lavender oil with a carrier oil such as coconut or almond oil and dab on spots to reduce inflammation and help prevent bacteria. 

2.  It can help sooth headaches and migraines when applied to the temples. Our lavender sleep balm is wonderful for this, just rub a little to each temple, close your eyes and take some deep breathes in. 

3. Dried lavender flowers inside a sachet help freshen linens, closets and drawers, yep our grandmothers knew what they were up to long before us! Pop a sachet in your top draw for that lovely lavender aroma. 

4. Lavender is used frequently to aide sleep and relaxation, through sleep balms, aromatherapy, bath bombs or a sleep spray. 

5. Lavender can help combat motion sickness when applied to pressure points, plus I don't know anyone that would complain about the smell of lavender when travelling - it will be welcomed by all. 

We have lavender oil as an option in all our kits where you can choose your fragrance, and it will always be an option given how wonderful lavender really is.
