Lavender: Incorporate this Soothing Herb into Your Life for Relaxation & Vitality

Lavender: Incorporate this Soothing Herb into Your Life for Relaxation & Vitality

The benefits of lavender have been well-established for some time; its soothing smell can help you rest and unwind after a stressful day. However, there are some lesser known positive effects that result from consuming lavender in teas, foods, or by using it topically that people don't always think of. Here are just a few:

Skin Health - Lavender has been known to help reduce blemishes and has an overall rejuvenating quality on the skin. You'll find this out firsthand by incorporating our body scrub into your skincare regimen.

Gut Health - Providing a much-needed boost to your gut health, lavender also adds a subtle-but-powerful note to many of our spice blends.

Nervous System - Did you know that simply smelling lavender can have a calming effect on your nervous system? It's a nice thing to add to your self-care toolbox if you suffer from anxiety. 

Here are some products we offer with lavender that can help deliver some of this herb's incredible benefits:

Classic Blend

Single Dry Herbs

BooBoo Spray

Soy Wax Candles

 

3 Ways to Set Intentions for 2021

3 Ways to Set Intentions for 2021

With the pandemic still in full swing, many of us are still doing much of our work remotely, making it difficult to create a work-life balance. Setting intentions to get things done without letting work bleed too heavily into your personal life can be a challenge. Below we've listed 3 different ways you can use products from our farm to set a routine in 2021.

1. Smudging - if you don't know what smudging is all about, here is an explanation from a previous blog. Basically, lighting these sage smudge sticks purifies the air and helps keep your workspace calm but efficient.

2. Chamomile/mint tea - The chamomile is calming, while the mint helps keep you alert and energized, two very important parts of a productive-yet-calm work day!

3. Aromatherapy - nothing sets the tone for day like the perfect scent. Try any of our soy candles for a nice pick-me-up, but we like the combo offered in our rosemary/mint/lavender candle for when you want to get things done while still staying zenned out.
