What is it about lavender that is so soothing? I have always had a love of the scent of lavender. My grandmother always used lavender soap. I’m not sure if it was just the huggable nature of my grandmother, or the scent of the lavender that gave me a sense of calm when I was in her orbit. Even now when I sense the light aroma of lavender a sense of calm envelopes me.
A couple of years ago I was awakened to the joy of lavender pillow spray. What a special treat! I don’t use my little spritzer every night, but when I am feeling a bit out of kilter I indulge myself and mist my linens. I have found that I drift off blissfully, the cozy feeling calming me to sleep. It might be my imagination, but I think I get a better night’s sleep.
Maybe this is why I love the color of lavender so much. The memories and the calm it provides.
This fun and flirty dress by MSS (Me Sew Sexy) is lovely in lavender. It’s a perfect summer look paired with a cute black sandal.
I think my grandmother would love this dress. She also loved flowers so the roses make it be perfect. Of course, I’d have to wear lavender perfume! Thanks for indulging me as I took a little stroll down memory lane 🙂
