Relax

June 18, 2010

Lavender!

I love it!  It’s said to aid in relaxation.  I use the essential oil in linen sprays and soaps.  Love it! I also put a few drops of it onto my laundry just before I put it in the dryer.  It makes the whole load smell so good. 

I’ve got this growing in the yard at the beach and my five-year old, Sam, always picks some to put in our bedrooms.  Especially if we have guests.  He likes to tuck some under our pillows.  I don’t know if it helps snuff out the noise that comes along with sleeping at our house!  But, it’s the best I can do.

Sleep well,

    LL – I LOVE this picture! I’ve been trying to get a good picture of my lavender with no success! Beautiful picture! And it’s one of my favorite scents. Sam’s a sweet kid…everytime you talk about him I fall in love with him a little more 🙂

    Beautiful picture. I love the scent of lavender too except it’s in a bottle.

    I thought I had lavender in my yard, but it looks nothing like that! Now I don’t know what I’ve got.

    Such a pretty flower, love the bluish violet color. I could sure use some aid in relaxation, maybe I should consider buying one for our garden. Thanks for sharing.
