In Love w/Lavender & Lilac

20140608-084743.jpg
I love the look, the smell, and the feel of lavender and lilac. Besides being pretty shades of purple, both lavender and lilac essential oils have several benefits. They can be used as a bug repellent, to induce sleep, for pain relief for muscle soreness, and the calming scent can reduce anxiety and emotional stress. These oils come in many products from massage oils to bath soaps.

Here are some wonderful lavender and lilac products that I enjoy using!
