Fun fact- Lavender is a mint. Who knew? Not us, until today. What else can I tell you? It was used during mummification and Romans bathed and cooked with it. It's even mentioned in The Bible.
The Shakers brought it to North America in the late 1700s. The Shakers lived a communal lifestyle and had advanced philosophies about gender and race. They were pacifists who didn't believe in procreation, choosing to adopt children. Then allowing these children to decide if they wanted to stay on their twenty-first birthday.
They believed God exists in every person, developed themselves intellectually and artistically and worked hard to live simply on the land.
This has nothing to do with the history of Spanish Lavender, but it was too interesting not to share!
First of all, it's a mild sedative with calming properties when inhaled so it was a no brainer for our 3 Daily Rituals, before bed skincare routine. It's also anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial making it great at treating mild acne and skin redness. Then there's its ability to scavenge for free radicals, effectively cleansing, literally, what atmosphere we walked through that day. There's good reason why it's in all 3 of our liquid products. We believe Spanish Lavender offers superior skin benefits, naturally.
