Lavender, Lavender, Lavender!

Chelsea Arvesen

Lavender is not only beautiful & fragrant, it comes with a plethora or healing qualities. To name a few; helps eliminate nervous tension, relieve pain, enhances blood circulation, improves sleep & treats respiratory problems. 

 

Lavender, from the Latin origin Lavare, means "to wash." Seems rather fitting with its clean and natural aroma. The Egyptians used it as perfume and the Roman's used it for bathing, cooking & scenting the air. 

We love it most in candle form, of course! Our Oregon Lavender candle is made from 100% lavender essential oils from a farm in Clackamas, Oregon! Our second favorite use? In a cocktail, using Sonoma Syrup Co's lavender simple syrup! 

Come see us this weekend at The Oregon Lavender Farm's 10th annual Lavender Festival and try all things Lavender! We will have a wide selection of lavender candles, including a limited supply of the lavender gift set, pictured above. Mention this post for 10% off your purchase.
