Do you know about lavender?

Lavender oil is believed to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to heal minor burns and bug bites. Research suggests that it may be useful for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness.

As flowers get a late start here in MN this spring, we have the worst case of spring fever ever!
I was just reading that our farmers' market has a new vendor this year and he has all kids of lavender goods.

Mmmmm, lavender. Pure lavender is one of my happy places. That and lilac, but there is no natural lilac essential oil available yet, so lavender it is!

Remember how mom used to rub Vicks VapoRub on our chest when we had a cold as a child? Well, we like to do almost that exact same thing, but with the melted oil from our Wicked Calm candle. The warmth from the GMO-free soy with our 7-lavender blend essential oil is pure heaven and helps us sleep.

It's also lovely to rub on your feet before putting on socks, and, if that weren't enough, a couple of drops of the Wicked Calm candle oil rubbed into cuticles at night is another soothing way to prepare for bedtime.

This single-blend, French lavender is also delightful and works well in your home or car diffuser. This plug-in model replaces those popular store-bought fragrance dispensers.

Sometimes I hear that someone doesn't like the smell of lavender. Before you rule it out, be certain you have experienced true lavender essential oil and not a lavender fragrance oil. Sadly, this can be difficult as I have even had product makers tell me that their soap or spray or essential oil blend is "100% natural" when this nose knows it isn't.

When working with a pure essential oil, one drop may be all you need to start. EO's pack quite the punch.

Therapeutic properties aside for many, it just smells good.

Enjoy.
