How to use Lavender & it’s benefits

Aug
29

Lavender is one of my favorite herbs to use. It’s gentle and soothing aroma brings a relaxed and calming feeling to my body.

The name lavender comes from the Latin root lavare, which means “to wash.”

Researchers have claimed that “Lavender” is beneficial for those that suffer from hair loss, anxiety, depression, stress, and insomnia.

 

How I incorporate Lavender into my health and home?

+ Skin Care & Body Products (Fascial Serums, Bath Scrubs, Lip Balms)
+Aromatherapy for headaches and stress
+Candles
+Laundry Detergent
+Dryer Sachet Bags
+Muscle Relief
+Carpet Deodorizer

Coming in Mid-September my Shop will be open for those that would love to use all natural skin care products. I will also be sharing DIY recipes for many of my products in my store here in the next few weeks.

 

Disclaimer: Always consult your doctor before starting a new health regimen.  Never use lavender in conjunction with any other medications before consulting with your doctor.
