My obsession with this divine scent started back when I was pregnant with my baby girl. And I still can´t get enough of lavender in my life! While purchasing and testing all this eco-lavender-stuff, I realized some of these products might actually stay on my beauty shelf for a while… Are you a lavender lover? – Then you need to try my lavender favorites!
Nowadays, lavender essential oil is one of the most popular in the world. And for a good reason. Its calming scent makes lavender an excellent tonic for the nerves and anxiety issues, not mentioning many other of its healthy benefits. Feeling stressed lately? – Give lavender a try.
This year I’m introducing some changes into my beauty & make up routine, while switching to organic, vegan and cruelty free products. And it´s been a constant try & error ongoing story [lol]. In some cases these eco products can’t replace those from the expensive brands I used to have (especially when it comes to foundations or mascaras) – but in most of the cases organic products feel better on my skin.
Lavender Must Haves
- Aura Cacia, Aromatherapy Room & Body Mist, Relaxing Lavender
A must have on my bedside table. It´s very natural and can be used as a body mist, but I really love using it as a linen spray before heading to sleep. Feels like sleeping in the lavender field…
- Thayers, Witch Hazel, Aloe Vera Formula, Alcohol Free Toner, Lavender
It´s an absolute best seller in the most of eco-beauty stores. Thayers make amazing toners with different smells, but this one is my all time favorite. Love using it to refresh my face in the mornings.
- Crystal Body Deodorant, Natural Deodorant Roll-On, Lavender & White Tea
This one has good ingredients, but has a low protection for the summer (in my case). However, I love the smell and still use it during the colder months.
- One with Nature, Triple Milled Soap, Lavender Soap Bar
I´eve never been a fan of a bar soaps, but this one smells so naturally. I immediately feel the scent once I open my bathroom door. Adore it.
- Out of Africa, Organic Shea Butter Body Lotion, Lavender
Very natural body lotion, makes your skin super soft and absorbs quickly. The texture is rich and creamy but it doesn’t leave an oily layer, which is awesome.
- EO Products, Daily Shampoo, French Lavender
I’ve tried way too many eco-friendly shampoos and it was always a disaster – none worked for me. I expected nothing when I gave this one a try. Can’t say enough how much I love its natural smell and it cleans your hair well without making it so dry.
- Alba Botanica, Natural Very Emollient, Sunscreen, SPF 45, Pure Lavender
My all time favorite sunscreen.By the way, I’ve always wondered why most of them smell the same way. This one has simply changed my sun protection routine – I really enjoy using it.
Any other lavender product you´d recommend me ?
