    Lavender…the Spring 2018 color of the season

    What comes to mind when you hear lavender? I think of Provence and seemingly endless lavender fields. Lavender is actually a herb that is used for relaxation and calming the mind. It’s been used throughout history for its medicinal properties. It’s even been used to treat insomnia. No wonder there are so many candles and personal bath products that use this scent.
