Lavender & Love | An Ancient Match!


 
 

In an apocryphal book of the Bible, we hear the use of lavender. The story tells us that
Judith anointed herself with perfumes including lavender before seducing Holofernes, the enemy commander. This allowed her to murder him and thus save the City of Jerusalem.

The overwhelming power of this seductive scent was also used by Cleopatra to seduce Julius Cesaer and Mark Anthony.



My Fragrance Suggestion:


LAVANILA's Vanilla Lavender


Description: (via website)

Vanilla Lavender takes you to an oasis of tranquility. Peaceful and serene, this clean fragrance blends Spanish lavender, rose absolute, violet leaf, and warm Madagascar vanilla. The essence is a masterpiece crafted by perfumers who use only the finest, all-natural ingredients!

Notes:

Vanilla, Lavender, Rose Absolute, Violet Leaf.

What I Love:

♥ With each spray of this fragrance it wraps the skin with super-antioxidants goji berry and kakadu plum for a healthy dose of 30 essential vitamins and minerals!

♥ Because each spray is actually good for you, you can use it as your base then layer your favs on top to pull out the peaceful notes!

tip: smells great under men cologne as well!

Fun Facts:

Lavender is widely utilized as a herbal medicine for its soothing and relaxing qualities. Few herbs can be claimed as effective.

♥ Lavender can treat hyperactivity; insomnia; flatulence; bacteria, fungus, and microbial activity on gums, airborne molds, and (in mixture with pine, thyme, mint, rosemary, clove, and cinnamon oils) Staphylococcus bacteria.

♥ Lavender may even be useful against impotence! In a study of men, the scent of pumpkin and lavender rated as the scent found most arousing!

Quote Of The Day!



Passion, it lies in all of us, sleeping... waiting... and though unwanted... unbidden... it will stir... open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us... guides us.... passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion maybe we'd know some kind of peace... but we would be hollow... Empty rooms shuttered and dank. Without passion we'd be truly dead.”

-Joss Whedon

I love this quote. I am unconditionally passionate about whatever I put my head & heart into. Makeup is just one of those things that makes me feel happy! Whether I'm talking about it with a friend or fellow makeup junkie, educating the girl who has never held a foundation brush, or applying it to a bride on one of the most memorable days of her life... ANYTHING that has to do with beauty stirs something inside of me!


Thank you all for following my outlet <3 Stay true to yourselves.. & always follow your heart! ♥
