Lavender Gifts

Say I Love You with Lavender

By

Lavender is a must-have healing herb and sleep aid. Its subtle scent induces relaxation and calm. Lavender is used in a variety of healing products such as sachets, candles, bath products, pillows, and more. Lavender can also be used to eased as a bug (moth and mosquito) repellent. I advise that you choose carefully when gifting scented products--be sensitive to other people's scent sensitivities. Although, as scents go, lavender is one that is tolerated very well. I am scent sensitive and I love the smell of lavender, but not everyone does.

Lavender by the Yard

A yard of lavender sachets for hanging in your clothes closet. Or, you can clip the strand of lavender into eight individual packets for your dresser drawers. Lavender will repel moths, a nice alternative to those stinky moth balls your mother and grandmother used.

Lavender Wreath

Have you considered painting your house lavender but realized that the neighbors would not appreciate your enthusiasm? A lavender house would certainly stick out like a sore thumb in my neighborhood. But, with this wreath you can dress up your house all year round, not only in color, but with the heavenly scent of lavender. Hanging up this lovely lavender wreath would make nice change from traditional green and holly berry wreathes during the holidays.
