Today is a special day. My husband turns 30! It has been a wonderful weekend spending time with friends and family, my heart is so full. This next chapter of our life will be the best one yet and I am beyond grateful! We have so much to look forward to in the next few months. I have some things in store for the business and our baby boy will be joining us, making our family a little more complete. So excited! It has been a crazy journey to say the least, but everything always works out the way its supposed to. Thank you universe!
Herb of the Week: Lavender
MMM...Lavender. This is such an incredible soothing and relaxing herb. It has the most amazing aroma, I am obsessed! I would say it is more well known for its aroma, than its medicinal properties. Native to France and the western Mediterranean, this herb is now cultivated world wide. The flowers are picked in the summer and are dried or distilled to produce the essential oil. The flowers can also be used for teas, infusions and baking. It adds a sweet floral taste to anything its added to! Lavender is not only delicious but its, antispasmodic, relieves anxiety, acts as an antidepressant, its neuroprotective and anti microbial. Use it to calm your nervous system and wind down your day as it has sedative properties to help induce sleepiness! Try out my ZEN AF Blend to really zen the F out. It’s such a nice way to end the day. You can also use lavender to soothe your digestive system when you have bloating, gas or indegestion. It may also help asthma symptoms where excessive nervousness is a feature since it helps you to relax. The essential oil is great for a first aid remedy as it is strongly antiseptic. It helps to heal wounds, burns, sores, insect stings, inflammation and can even be used to treat scabies and head lice. Yikes! Another great way to utilize the oil from lavender is to rub it on your temples if you’re suffering from a headache or add a few drops to your bath to relive muscle tension. So many options! If you wanted to get really crazy I highly suggest you chill out with a cup of my ZEN AF tea in a bath with lavender essential oils. Hello the best sleep of your life! If you’re looking for a great Lavender Blend check out Lavished in Lavender from Daisy Paw. This is actually my mom’s company and she makes the most amazing essential oil blends that are not only great for you, but you can use them for your dogs. Check out her site here!
