ALLURING LAVENDER

August 17, 2017

Discovery

Most of us appreciate lavender for its fragrance, used in soaps, lotions, sachets and diffusers. And lavender’s vibrant purple blossoms are equally as pleasing to the eye. But many would be surprised at how long humans have been using this remarkable gift of nature. The earliest known use of lavender was discovered in Egyptian ruins—used by the royal families and high priests in cosmetics, massage oils and burial adornments. It’s also mentioned in the Bible, not by the name lavender but by the name used at that time—spikenard. And it continued to show up in cultures throughout history—from the Greeks and Romans, through the Middle Ages, Victorian era and right up to today, where it’s cherished as one of the most popular essential oils.

 

Benefits

Why Lavender?

Highly aromatic, lavender has a relaxing scent. Soak away a hard day by adding Lavender Essential Oil to a hot bath or rub away achy feet with Lavender-enhanced massage oil.*

 

Uses

Beat the Heat

Lavender helps beat the summertime heat. Mix water and a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil into a spray bottle to create a cooling body spritzer, or diffuse Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint Essential Oils to invigorate the whole house.

 

Pamper Your Legs

Give those legs a little lavender love with homemade skin creams, natural shaving creams, sunscreens, and even bath salts infused with Lavender Essential Oil.
