Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)is by far one of the most popular herbs and is well known for its relaxing properties and uses in aromatherapy. Lavender is very gentle and helps improve mood and promote restful sleep and yet is very powerful in its medicinal effects, healing skin irritations, and wounds while preventing infection. Lavender helps lower and maintain blood pressure, aids in digestion, relieves bloating, and treats many skin related issues. Is there anything this gentle, yet powerful plant can’t do? We think not! It smells like a dream, too!
We only use natural colorings from the earth in our products…
Alkanet is a bright blue/violet colored plant with leaves that are fuzzy. But it’s the roots that are dried and made into a powder and used as a dye. Along with being a natural dye, it can be used to soothe skin irritations, heal burns and scars.
Alkanet root also protects the skin from infection and is known to help relieve inflammation. It can also soothe eczema and is a detoxifier for the skin as well because of its astringent properties.
We use wild harvested alkanet root powder. This means that the crop is not grown on a farmed area, and is usually far from populated areas or areas they are sprayed with chemicals. It is has extremely low risk of having been sprayed with pesticides.
To me, a lot of times being wild harvested can almost be better than organic because they are usually grown in these amazing, natural conditions.
We use alkanet root powder in our lavender bar soap, and it not only adds this beautiful color, but the additional benefits of the alkanet root powder take this soap to the next level!
