To read more about the benefits of lavender, check out our blog post from a few weeks back. Lavender can be found in sachets, candles, even in infused-socks! We're sharing some lavender gift ideas in today's holiday gift guide.

  • Here's a gift for someone who likes to have a treat along with their tea or coffee. The Lavender Shortbread from Miette in San Francisco would be a special change from biscotti or plain shortbread. If you have not tried a baked item infused with lavender, you've been missing out!

What does non-comedogenic really mean?
What does non-comedogenic really mean?

November 06, 2018

There are many health benefits to enjoying a bath, though.

1. Taking a warm bath at night can help you get a better sleep.

Once you have stepped into your warm bath, you immediately feel calmer and more relaxed. Did you know that science tells us there is another reason baths help you feel a bit better, though? Do you know that cooler feeling you experience stepping out of the tub, leaving the warm water behind? When that colder air hits your skin, your brain releases something you may have heard of before: Melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that helps to lull you off to Dream Land a bit more easily.
