We get very excited around about this time of the year as we eagerly await the Lavender harvest in Provence. Drive around the Luberon to see the best of the Lavender fields, visit the Abbey de Senanque near Gourd or gently meander around the area ending in Sault. Wonderful.
Lavender is having a renaissance as we realise the broad range of natural benefits of this wonderful aromatic plant. Lavender scents these days are fresh, vibrant and aromatic making it the perfect home scent; both revitalising and calming.
Here's just a few ways in which this amazing plant can help you:
- Lavender is naturally antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and rejuvinating - making it perfect in soaps and handcreams for cleansing and soothing your hands. Try our Special Offer Lavender Liquid Marseille soap and Lavender hand lotion by Durance.
- A spritz of lavender aids restful sleep, relieves anxiety and helps to reduce headaches - try our pillow sprays and room sprays to help you drift off to sleep. My 12 year old son loves the Lavender and Olive pillow spray for those (many!) nights when he can't sleep.
- Lavender is also amazing at repelling bugs and will even get rid of ants! - try Lavender drawer sachets in your wardrobes and drawers, keeping ants and moths at bay.
We hope you fall in love with Lavender, have a look at our fabulous Special Offers in our Lavender Collection and try a few of our favourites!
