Lavender is considered to be the most important scent in aromatherapy, an ancient art that is just now becoming popular in North America. Lavender is known for its "balancing" properties. Sonoma Lavender is family-owned and operated and cultivates about five acres of lavender. Local artisans hand-craft the company's unique product line, ranging from wreaths and other decorative accessories, to pillows and sachets, to their spa line of products for body and bath. If you are weary and have low energy, lavender is energizing; if you are feeling overstressed, lavender is calming and soothes frazzled nerves. Lavender revitalizes the body and tends to the spirit, bringing you back to a state of balance. Plus, it's a great ingredient for oily and acne-prone skin, as it can help balance oil production, thereby creating a healthier, clearer and shine-free complexion.
