Laven­der

– the re­laxer

It soothes, re­laxes, re­duces stress and acts as a po­tent (yet gen­tle) an­ti­sep­tic. This is why laven­der is one of the best all-round es­sen­tial oils. Used for cen­turies to treat wounds, it of­fers on-the-spot re­lief for prob­lem skin and has enor­mous emo­tional ben­e­fits. Its sweet, crisp scent of­fers a sooth­ing seda­tive effect renowned for in­duc­ing re­lax­ation and calm­ing the cen­tral ner­vous sys­tem to pro­mote a bliss­ful night’s sleep – some­thing so many of us strug­gle to achieve. So switch off with a dose of this li­lac lifesaver and leave your wor­ries be­hind.

L’Oc­c­i­tane’s La­vande Foam­ing Bath im­parts a rest­ful warmth – calm­ing red, sore and tired skin. What bet­ter way to bathe away the day? In­stead of feel­ing weak­ened and ex­hausted, the sooth­ing and re­vi­tal­is­ing prop­er­ties of this gen­tle bath foam pro­vide a sense of well-be­ing that will leave you to­tally hor­i­zon­tal – and not just be­cause you’re in the bath.
