This fragrant aromatic has been used for hundreds of years in various natural remedies, but most people know lavender for its soothing and calming properties that reduces stress and aids in a good night's rest. Just a whiff of this herb can calm the nervous system and transform your whole day.
Now that's what we call powerful!
Keep reading to learn a little more about how we used lavender in our products here at Jane Inc, as well as the incredible health and skin benefits it offers.
Where We Source Our Lavender From
We source our lavender from beautiful Provence, where lavender blooms from June to August creating lavender fields that are quite a sight to behold!
These rippling purple fields create a fragrant and calming atmosphere and is one of the summer Must-Sees in Provence. If you ever find yourself there, also be sure to try the cuisine where lavender features as a key ingredient in honey and sorbets.
Lavender sourced from Provence is light and sweet and you'll be hard pressed to tear your nose away from our lavender infused products!
We also use lavandin, a type of lavender especially prized for its powerful aromatic properties, in our essential oils. This variety of lavender not only soothes and calms, but it's also excellent for relieving sinus issues and may help with snoring issues too.
