For the Love of Lavender

Sault France Village and Lavender Fields

We are always inspired by the beauty that is around us. It can be nature, travel, or just a person you pass on the street. In the quest for new ideas and expanding on some from the past, we took a journey to the South of France a few years ago.

After our train ride to Provence we rented a car, and explored the sights and towns along the way experiencing the amazing food, culture and the spirit of every person we encountered. The trip did not disappoint.

One of our bases was located in the quaint town of L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.  After several days of exploring, we awoke before dawn, piling into the car half-asleep. Off we went to discover our new adventure for the day.

Three hours later in Roussillon, eyes half closed, we rounded the bend and there it was, an enormous beautiful hot air balloon. Eyes fully opened with anticipation, one by one we climbed into the basket. As gentle as a feather, up, up and away we went. Gracefully lifting into the morning sky with the sun slowly peeking over the horizon, a dynamic patchwork of purple blanketed the ground below. Once safely back on the ground, we enjoyed a stroll into the town of Sault, the birthplace of lavender.

From the moment that soothing aroma hit our noses, we were reminded how much we love (and are inspired by) the scent.  Lavender is, and will always be, a staple in our home and in ACDC products.

Lavender is more than just a fragrant plant, this herb is also commonly used for therapeutic benefits. In ancient times, lavender was thought to be a holy herb, often used to freshen up and give a light scent to a variety of personal items, such as clothes and hair. (We still do this today.)

Everyday stresses can take a toll on mental health and well-being. There’s plenty of research that suggests lavender has positive effects on mood, stress, anxiety, and depression. Studies have shown lavender essential oil may help promote sleep and fight insomnia. Did you know that Lavender may act as a natural bug repellent, keeping away a variety of insects, like flies, mosquitoes, and moths?

Take a little time each day to remind yourself that you are worthy of peace and serenity. Personally, I think in today’s climate we can all use a little lavender aromatherapy to rejuvenate, relax and energize our minds, bodies, and souls.
