My New Obsession With Lavender Plus A New Privacy Policy

Over the past year, when some of my stress levels were at their highest, I became obsessed with all things lavender.  It began with a visit to the Loma de Vida Spa at the La Cantera Hill Country Resort, when one of the technicians began to teach me about the power of lavender.  I knew it was known to be a calming aroma, but did you know, it does much more??

In fact, according to ORGANICFACTS.NET, the top benefits of lavender include

  1. Reduces mental stress and anxiety
  2. Aides in treating insomnia
  3. Improves blood circulation
  4. Battles respiratory tract infections
  5. Boosts immunity and digestive health
  6. Increases cognitive functions
  7. Treats acne, and hair loss
  8. Stimulates healthy urine flow
  9. Relieves muscle and joint pains
  10. Is an effective bug repellant and reduces irritation caused by bug bites

With the reading of each benefit on the list, I was convinced more and more that this is an aroma I need around the rest of my days.  Above are a few ways, I experience lavender every day.  In hand lotion, in scented oils, in pillow spray, and in the products I am currently using to promote a restful night (ZzzQuil chews and balm).

I also added lavender oil to my office diffuser.  Every co-worker who has entered the office so far has commented on the wonderful aroma.  I need to use it this summer before I go to outdoor events and see if the one about being a bug repellant really works.  I cannot tell you I know for sure it helps in all of these areas, but I can tell you that I love the aroma and will do anything to promote sleep and peace!

What about you?  Do you believe in the benefits of lavender?  You might check out the products below if you like it as much as I do!

KEEP SMILING!!

  1. I love the scent of lavender and have it in oil, lotion and candle form, but was not aware of all the benefits listed. Definitely worth looking into. I like the idea of the diffuser in the office. I’m going to try that.

    1. I love the way my office smells…it does add a nice touch to the workday! Thanks Karen.

  2. Which brand of Lavendar oil do you prefer? Is that the same thing you put in the diffuser? Questions, questions. Lol. I’ve been researching Lavendar this week.

    1. I know there are many opinions so some of you may want to jump in. But I put a lavender oil which is marketed for the diffuser. Many diffusers come with their brand of oil. I have also poured into mine a lavender scent from AirWick which I got at the grocery and it seems to work just as well. My favorite lavender oil for bedtime is sold by Bath & Bodyworks. They have wonderful products and I use their oil, pillow spray and hand lotion in lavender ( I love the lotion called Lavender and Linen)

  3. I became obsessed with lavender a few years ago, but now I truly keep it with me at all times. I have some essential oil that I put in my feet every night to promote better sleep, it works! I use it as my daily perfume as well. As a matter of fact, the more essential oils I’ve incorporated into my life, the more I can’t stand other scents. I no longer enjoy my favorite perfumes, and even my beloved candles! Amy

    1. I still love all of it, but lavender has become a big part of my daily life…maybe someday I will be like you Amy.
