Emotional balance and re-assurance, Lavender is definitely my go-to scent when I'm feeling down, stressed or anxious. After a long soak in the bath, using my 'Lemon & Lavender bath bomb' or 'Lavender bath salts' or sometimes both! I always feel like I'm on cloud 9 and ready to face what life has to throw at me.
Sometimes if I'm feeling extra stressed and in need of a serious pamper session, I will use our 'Lavender & Rosemary body scrub', I use my knowledge and past experience when getting reflexology - basically like a foot rub, but with more benefits to your body and potential healing within your body. I like to use my body scrub to massage into the base of my feet, this gives me a bit of a relaxing foot rub as well as caring for my feet and leaving them left feeling soft, smooth, nourished and relaxed.
You will see when visiting my online store that Lavender can be used in a variety of different ways and can be combined with various other essential oils. Lavender doesn't just relax you, it can also uplift you.
When cleaning my work-space and home I even like to use Lavender scented cleaning products, so whilst I clean my house, I'm also chilling out at the same time!
Lavender is also a brilliant go-to essential oil is your feeling un-well as it can help to clear sinus congestion and also help with allergies. In fact Lavender can help us in our daily lives in many different ways this can also include soothing insect bites, bruising, cuts, and stings as well as soothing skin irritation and inflammation.

The Benefits of Lemon:
Lemon is an excellent natural antibacterial and is used a lot in cleaning products and hand-washes and soaps because of this. Lemon is great for nourishing your skin, also reduces infection and congestion, helps to clear sinus congestion and soothes allergies. These are just of few of the health benefits that Lemon essential oil has been known for. The reason I picked Lemon to use in my products is because of the way it makes you feel - happy and energised! - Brilliant if you're feeling a bit down in the dumps or just need something to wake up your senses again.
The lemon essential oil has been known for its healing properties, brilliant when used in our 'lemon and lime bath salts' when combined with the magnesium sulfate and rock salt, this will help to soothe sore muscles and joints and even help to reduce any sores or injuries you may have on the body.
When combined with Lavender essential oil the benefits are endless. You will have the relaxation and calming of the Lavender but also the uplifting properties of Lemon that will make you glow and feel all warm and happy inside.
