Lavender Flowers

The Calming Fragrance of Lavender Flowers

Lavender is the perfect herb to place in the spotlight for autumn. Lavender is known for its amazing healing properties, the ability to uplift an individual’s mood and to promote relaxation. There are many different types of lavender available on the market today. I recommend trying a few of the ideas that I have listed below to determine which type of lavender will work best for you.

Instead of allowing the lavender in your herb garden to go to waste, you can use the flowers in a variety of different ways. Lavender flowers can be picked and placed inside a sachet for freshening articles of clothing or other linens. The flowers can also be placed within a small pillow for the eyes, head or neck. Lavender pillows can be used to compliment your meditation practice or promote relaxation before bed. If you prefer to purchase a product that is already made, Hugger Mugger has the perfect eye pillow. Hugger Mugger currently offers a silk eye pillow that contains flax seeds, lavender, citrus and peppermint. For additional information about this product please visit www.huggermugger.com.

If you do not have any fresh lavender available, you can always use an essential oil. Try to avoid oils that are over diluted or synthetic. Pure essential oils are always recommended but use caution when applying directly to the skin. Lavender essential oil can be used to unwind by placing in a few drops in a bath or used with a carrier oil, to moisturize your skin before retiring for the night. You can also use lavender oil in an oil diffuser to create a calming atmosphere at home. I personally love to use lavender oil at the end of my yoga practice while in Savasana. Dab a small amount of oil under the nose or on the forehead and allow yourself to be taken away.

Hopefully this post has inspired you to try one of the many uses that lavender has to offer. We would love to hear your thoughts. What is your favorite way to use lavender?

    Lavender helped me a lot with my sleep problems as after I start using a lavender spay on my pillow I have good nice sleep.
