When I was young I hated the smell of lavender.
I’m not sure if it’s because my dad’s friend’s family had a lavender farm and every Christmas my dad would bring home baskets of body products made of lavender and whenever I would smell them, it reminded me of the washroom. For years, it just smelt like toilets to me.
It wasn’t until recently that I’ve fallen in love with lavender and the scent….
The scent of lavender now, thankfully doesn’t link to bathrooms, it reminds me of calm, peace and healing.
For the last few months I have been using a lot of beauty items that are lavender based and one being super high quality, Lavender Essential Oil on my face! I can not go a day without adding a drop to my moisturizer every morning and night to help with keeping my skin clear and my scars smoothing out. Not to mention, it’s amazing to be lightly patted around the eyes for additional lovin’ there ; )
Side note – would you be interested in hearing what products I use and have used to heal my scarring and clear my adult acne? I could do a whole lotta posting on this topic! Let me know.
Ahhhh Lavender Lovin’, I do love you.
So my #1 HOT Lavender product right now is Dom’s Deodorant!
My freaking goodness – I spoke with the woman Dom, behind Dom’s Deodorant and she told me “It WORKS!” and I will be the first to admit, I doubted it.
I have never ever ever ever bought a natural deodorant that ACTUALLY works with keeping my pits dry and stink free. Dom’s Deodorant does BOTH!
How?! I don’t know, but I swear I feel like I have died and gone to heaven with this natural pit-stick. I does really, truly WORK!
You smooth this deo on with your fingers and it’s kinda funky to get used to, but who cares when you’re not poisoning your body and you still smell delicious.
The first day I got this deodorant, I smeared it on, went to the gym and kept smelling to see if I was fresh, to my surprise, I was! Even after a fantastic workout!!! HEAVEN!
Next on my Lavender Lovin’ List is Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap in, of course, Lavender scent.
I use this gorgeous soap in the bath and for washing my bathtub. Random, but so good.
This leaves your skin soft, clean and smelling like a field of little purple flowers!
Another random lavender story…
When we moved into the house that we’re currently in, I was so excited to see big lavender bushes outside the front door and in the summertime, they smell divine and add so much beauty to the front of the home.
I will be doing a House Tour Post / Video for you very soon! Would you be interested in that?
Lavender is known for it’s calming properties. So, if you’re looking for a way to get your deep beauty sleep, put some lavender essential oil on your temples, or on your pillow. I even like to place some on my wrists, because I sleep with my hands up by my face and it helps me calm down and get into a glorious snooze.
Of course, a bath before bed with lavender and epsom salts is always a good idea!
OK! I want to hear from you – what is your favourite lavender product? Do you use natural deodorant?
