currently coveting :: lavender dreams...



Ever since my first trip to a lavender farm last Summer, i've been obsessed with lavender products that smell true to the flower. I never used to love it, finding it way too strong, but now with the right product I find the scent so relaxing and soothing. My friend and co-worker Sue, recently gave me some lavender handmade soap from Olivier, and it's amazing! It's moisturizing, smells wonderful, and the little flower buds within it are great for exfoliating. It definitely inspired me to gather more of my favourite lavender products, plus a few new ones i'd like to try out (hello pretty lollia sachet!).

What about you? Do you loathe or love the scent of lavender?

Now I love it, actually here in Provence lavender is everywhere and earlier I didn't like it. Now i'm used to it and with right product, I love it.

I love it! Make my own handmade lavender soap and sachets. Just yesterday I put lavender in the bottom of a clear vase then added a white pillar. Looks gorgeous.

When it's super strong, I'm not a big fan. But a little hint of lavender is lovely :)

I hated the smell of lavender until I accidentally bought some lavender L'Occitane products - they are delicious! Also, my bf's gran puts fresh lavender in pillow slips to keep them fresh and help you sleep, it really works!

Absolutely! I keep a little lavender sachet by my bedside to perfume our bedroom. It really does help relax you in the evening and fall into a blissful sleep!

Like you, I like lavender only when its true to form. Sort of like grapes. I love grapes but not grape flavoring. Lavender is very much that way.
