I have created Kblossoms lavender jewelry for you all inspired by my recent trip to the Ojai Lavender Festival held on June 29, 2013! This is Ojai's 10th annual lavender festival where they have vendors selling everything made of lavender: lavender soap, yogurt, sea salt, tea, essential oils, dried bouquets, sachets, cooking spices, lemonade! It was lavender heaven for me and I wanted to buy everything lavender that I saw but had to exert self control! Besides the aromatic calming effect of the lavender essential oils used to make lavender honey, lavender goals milk soap, and lavender mint tea I really was surprised by all the healing properties of lavender. Lavender has powerful antiseptic properties and helps to heal wounds faster and also helps with stomach and digestive problems. You can even massage lavender oil to your temples, neck and forehead to relieve headaches and tension after a long day of work. Lavender is great for skin problems like acne, burns, dry skin, sunburn, and itchy skin. It was such a hot 100 degree summer day that we melted walking around the festival so we cooled ourselves down with a nice refreshing cup of iced lavender lemonade and lavender yogurt, so yummy! I brought some lavender rose tea and lavender mint tea home with me and brewed them pouring a hint of lavender honey in them to create iced lavender tea to drink on hot summer days. It helps cool you down immediately and is a great thirst quencher. My next lavender favorites are the hand made lavender lotion and soap above. I really like the way the lady cut the lovely lavender goal soap in front of me in this wooden compartment and I like how it's decorated with real dried lavender and rose buds which adds a hint of country vintage charm. I use the lavender lotion I got from Central Coast Lavender after I shower with the softest lavender goats milk leaving my skin feeling so soft and body so relaxed! It's my way of pampering myself at home with my busy work schedule where I never have time to go to the spa. My last favorite lavender item I got at the Ojai Lavender Festival was a $5 bouquet of freshly cut lavender that I immediately came home and decorated with a purple silk bow and cherry blossom flowers in a glass jar. I placed the beautiful lavender display on my living room table and it makes the whole room aromatic and so fragrant. I get to come home basically feeling relaxed smelling the lavender aroma all around me. Hope you all like the Kblossoms lavender inspired jewelry I created and thanks for reading!
