I love lavender in any and every way. I love lavender plants. I love lavender lotions and potions. I love lavender essential oil. I love lavender macaroons! Did you know in ancient times it was used as a holy herb?
I love it so much because it is so versatile.
You can grow it in your garden and enjoy the gorgeous scent and flowers.
Then the flowers and leaves can be dried and used in tea.
Culinary lavender can be used to make delicious treats. Lavender ice cream anyone?
You can also use the dried flowers in sachets for your drawers.
It is an excellent muscle relaxant. Add a few drops of lavender essential oil to your bath salts and soak away 🛀!
It is healing and can be used after surgery (once the wound has healed for about 2 weeks) to help minimize scarring.
Mix lavender essential oil with purified water in a small glass spray bottle and mist your pillows before bed 🛌 every night and drift off into a peaceful sleep.
Add lavender essential oil to your diffuser or humidifier in your bedroom to promote restful sleep.
It is safe to use on your pets.
It is calming and promotes a sense of well-being.
It is used in non-toxic products for your home. You can buy lavender wood polish and leather cleaner.
I would love to know what you all are using lavender for. Please share so we can all benefit from this wonderful plant!
