In my skincare
I love lavender. Lavender is age old and gets it’s name in Latin from “lavare” or to wash or bathe. That’s something I love to do so no wonder I love it so much. It has a clean, bright, floral, minty and herbaceous scent. It has a beautiful purple blue flower that bees love to go to. Another reason why I love it so much!
I use lavender in quite a few of my products. The essential oil is one of the gentlest of all. But still potent and full of benefits like helping to relieve acne, skin infections and nappy rash. The essential oil is made available from steam distillation of the flowering tops. If you open a lavender flower to find the tiny seed inside and crush it you will smell the beautiful aroma of lavender as the oil is released. I love to put lavender flowers in a bath and swirl them around to release their scent. Lavender helps to calm and provides a sense of serenity.
I am in the process of making yoga lavender eye pillows that will be available soon. In each pillow there is a small quantity of lavender inside providing you with a relaxing stretch out at the end of a yoga or pilates session. Eye pillows are placed over your eyes as you rest. They are also helpful for the relief of migraine.
I will also have available soon a new Cleansing Bar in Lavender and Mint. I will make this batch with my beautiful organic coconut, sunflower and olive oils and add a stream of Australian Pink Clay. It will be bright and cheery with the nice scent of lavender and mint too. The Australian Pink Clay will provide a gorgeous colour with the added benefit of gentle exfoliation while gently drawing out impurities. The organic oils cleanse and moisturise deeply, providing you with a perfect everyday cleansing routine, particularly in these difficult times. Try it with one of my ceramic soap dishes so that it can air dry and keep on lasting.
I am a little biased in loving my products as I have put a lot of effort into each and every one of them. But I do love my Sandalwood and Lavender Body Cream. It has a luxurious feel and smoothness, spreads easily and provides beautiful moisture especially when applied to damp skin after a bath or shower. The base oil is cosmetic grade grapeseed oil which provides a light base plus vitamin and mineral content that is available for your skin to absorb. Lavender essential oils pairs well with other essential oils like Sandalwood. Sandalwood is an expensive essential oil with a woody, exotic and balsamic scent and also has many benefits in use as a skincare ingredient.
My Lavender Tattoo Balm uses lavender as the hero ingredient. Cocoa and Shea butters really help relieve itchy, dry skin conditions. Use it on your Tattoo to keep the colour vibrant while moisturising skin deeply. My balm is also a wonderful treatment for nappy rash and other dry, itchy skin issues. It fits nicely in the back pocket of your jeans to go anywhere.
In my candles
For relaxation try a soy coconut candle in Lavender and Mint. I use my candles in my home in the bathroom and living room and to bring a lovely fragrance through the house. Lavender brings a sense of calm while uplifting your spirit. While COVID lurks about I burn a coconut soy candle regularly to uplift and try to bring some positivity home.
In my joy and happiness
I love to bring joy and happiness to you and your family with beautiful, natural botanical small batch, Australian made skincare, body care and candle gifts.
Love from Louise.
