    Heady ...

    The heady smell of lavender has as few different associations for me. I remember a trip through Provence in the South of France some years ago and driving alongside fields of lavender and the perfume was so overpowering.  There were a few essential oil extraction factories...

    Pil Pil

    I must sleep with my "pil pil".  It is an eye pillow filled with flax seeds, soaked in lavender oil.  It is satin fabric and is the perfect weight to relax my eyes.  Yes, I have put wayyyy too much thought into this.  Not only does it relax your...

    Very Comforting

    I love the smell of lavender. I have sachets that I put inside my pillow case at night. I have lavender scented linen spray that I spray my bed with. I have sachets in drawers and cupboards, and candles that I love to burn. I find the scent very relaxing and very comforting.

    *sniff*

    Lavender is calming. And for me.. it works. When it comes to candles, or oils... I  prefer it coupled with vanilla or chamomile. Ahh.. a nice hot lavender scented candlelit bath.

    Bear

    I have a bear somewhere that is stuffed with lavender. It smells so lovely and I could sit there all day sniffing at it. But I don't, I'm far too busy. But at night he's usually close by somewhere. Probably under my pillow.

    Calming

    I love this aroma, it has such a calming affect on me and it's interesting and soothing and gentle at the same time. I have this lavender eye mask that helps me get to sleep and the scent of freshly picked lavender can calm me down when I'm uptight. We have some growing in...

    Smells Like Memories

    I don't know why, but lavender smells like memories I can't quite remember.  It's like they're right there on the edges of my consciousness, but I can't put my finger on them.

    Finally Peaceful

    When I smell lavender, I think of him. I find it to be a calming, peaceful odor that seems to match his way with me. It brings me a peace that I have never known.

    Such a Versatile Fragrance.

    I like the smell of it in the garden; I like it as a sachet in the closet, the linen cupboard, the dresser; I like it in bath products.  I like to cook with it (lavender ice cream, anyone?).  I've never seen a field of it growing, but I would like to. :-)  E...

    Meditation

    There is a big patch of lavender in the garden where I live. I love to take a mat out there in the spring and summer and put it in the middle of the patch and meditate with it surrounding me.  It always seems to calm me and make me feel relaxed and help me meditate well even...

    Completely Natural

    Real lavender is the only scent I can have in my house that doesn't give my girls a headache.  They are very sensitive to artificial fragrances such as candles and those plug in things.  I bought some Salt Spring Island lavender oil and put it in my vacuum cleaner...

    Instant Aromatherapy

    I have two lavendar plants in my perennial garden. Whenever I'm outside, I make sure to wander past one of them, run my hands along there soft spiky leaves, and bury my nose in my now-fragrant hands. It's such a calming, pleasant scent.

    :)

    It's a very calming scent.  I have a lavender scented lotion that I use before I go to sleep and I used to also have a room fragrance thing that smelled like lavender too.   The smell of lavender plus chamomile tea equals a very calm, relaxed night :)

    So Calming

    I can't think of a smell that is more calming than lavender.   I keep a little bag of lavender buds in my purse and take a whiff when I'm stressed out at work.   It also helps migraines!   I have a lavender eye mask that smells so good when it warms...

    Growing Lots of Lavender

    This summer I have grown lots of tiny lavender bushes from seed. I hear that it helps to keep away the greenfly. Also I use it as a comfort when  I feel very sad, you know like when someone dies.
