My Thoughts...

How I Use It:
Like most people I deal with stress daily. I've gotten pretty good at managing it, but still experience the occasional headache or tension. I love to use the Lavender in it's body spray form at work. I keep a bottle at work since this is where I have to deal with the most stress.


I also like to use it at bath time. The body wash, bubble bath or bath salts are all ways I enhance this time I have to myself. After a long day it's perfect to help me relax. You can use lavender in your pillow as well, but I like to spray a light mist on top of my pillow at night.


The Scent:
It]s scent gets your attention, but is not too sweet or intrusive.



The Products:
Lavender products are relatively easy to find and inexpensive. Whether you like to shop in the store or online, there is a convenient source. Being able to find them in so many different forms makes it easy to find a way to find relief throughout your day.
