Lavender. So here’s the thing about it. You either like it…or you don’t. Many years ago before I really got into essential oils, I could not stand the smell of it. It’s smelled like dirt. I truly had to grow to love it and now I can’t get enough of it. Lavender truly has relaxing and calming effects. I’ve experienced this firsthand and I love ending the day with body care products that have a little bit of lav dumped in.
Remember Beecology? I did a quick feature of them a while back and now I’m back with a formal review of some of the products that they sent me. If you’d much rather spend your money supporting the hardworking smaller businesses, shop at Beecology! They are awesome and personable and on top of that, they have phenomenal products at decent prices.
Their Honey & Lavender Soap ($5.99) is so so sweet and when Elle’s eczema isn’t flaring up, I use it for her baths. The added shea butter and avocado oil provides just a touch of moisture and the honey mixed with lavender provides such a nice combination of sweet and floral.
The Natural Lavender & Bergamot Body Wash ($8.99) is pretty stellar too.
With more of a floral scent, I’m diggin’ the simple ingredients list. I tend to prefer this over the soap because I feel like it provides just a bit more moisture in my insanely dry skin. And the scent – oh goodness. Again, you really have to be a fan of lavender to love this soap.
But wait…you aren’t a fan of lavender? No problem, Beecology carries other glorious soaps, body washes, shampoos and lotions of various fragrances like…
- Natural Honey and Peppermint
- Natural Grapefruit & Lemongrass
- Cucumber & Green Tea
- Honey Oatmeal Morning Peppermint
- Tea Tree Oil
See! They’ve thought of something for everyone. I will continue supporting this small business that not only provides such awesome products but puts a ton of love and care into their packaging and formulas.
Soooo, about lavender…love it? Or hate it?
