Lavender Cachet Review


Mmm, I know that by now you have caught on that I love lavender scented products so this will be no surprise to you that I have some more products to tell you about from Lavender Cachet.

Sometimes, I get these products so close together and I will try to break them up so they aren't back to back but because I was ill last week and got behind, unfortunately, I had to put two posts about lavender products together. But, you will love this one because there are some different things I got this time that I haven't gotten before so just bear with me and let me tell you all about them. They send your products in this really cute little purple bag!

Here is what Lavender Cachet sent me to review:

1. Lavender Rosehip Massage Oil (does that not sound delish?)
2. Lavender Vanilla Body Powder (great before bedtime)
3. Pebble Organdy Lavender Sachet (put in your undie or lingerie drawer)

Oh, let me tell your clothes have not smelled this good in a long time if you get one of their sachets and put it wherever you think you might want that lingering whiff of freshness and lavender to follow you! I chose the Pebble Organdy because I liked the fabric it was in plus the little flower at the top.

They have lavender, ylang ylang and chamomile in all the sachets. You can get them in satin, muslim embroidered, heart shaped organza and ivory embroidered organza. Whatever fabric you choose you will still be delighted with the scent. You can even put this under your pillow if you want to calm down and let the stress leave your body so that you can relax and fall asleep thinking good thoughts and not worrying about the boss at work!

Next, I used the Lavender Vanilla Body Powder. I love powder and I know alot of young people think it is an old woman's kind of thing, but I am here to tell you if you want to smell fresh and clean and not come off smelling like you poured the whole bottle of perfume on, powder is WONDERFUL!

I love to use it in situations where I am in a rush and don't have time to get all prettied up! I will put some powder in certain area's that will have me smelling like I had just dived into a pool filled with flowers and sweet freshness!

I love lavender and vanilla together because they are just so clean but if that is not your style, they have other scents to try. You can just get Lavender by itself or Lavender with Chamomile. Everyone is different and that is what makes the world a fun filled place! We all don't want the same thing at the same time and that's a good thing or we would all smell the same and be bored out of our minds, although, we would definitely smell good! Go to this link to see what some of the benefits of lavender can do for you.

Lastly, oh, what can I say about the massage oil? I chose the one with Rosehips in it to try and be a little creative and I am so glad I did! I love roses anyway and my husband does give me roses for special occasions and I have about 10 rose bushes outside so I figured the two of them together should really be great, and they were! I have very dry skin and I know it says massage oil, but I used it to keep my legs and arms from getting that itchy scratchy feel sometimes when I am sleeping I will catch myself scratching during the night.

I have a low thyroid and so it keeps my skin pretty dry and I have found that oils are one of the best ways to relieve that itching if my lotions don't work. Now, with the oils, you can get very creative because here is what they can mix with the lavender: hazelnut, coconut, sunflower, almond, rosehip, grapeseed and apricot! So, this is one area you can go bananas in and smell however which way suits you the best!

One of the main reasons I love lavender is of course the smell, but it seems to calm me when I am stressed, can help you sleep better and help with tension. It works for me and of course everyone is different so I don't know what might work for you, but lavender seems to help me some and because I have so many health issues, when I find something that helps even if it is just a little bit, anything at this point is worth it.

Always check with your doctor before trying something new that you are unfamiliar with. I don't know your body and neither does Lavender Cachet. They are just trying to provide products that might help some of us but they strongly recommend you asking your doctor if it is okay for you. I want you to have a great experience but only if it is beneficial to you and not something that would harm you.

Now, as always, my little quirk about history on my company's that I review, not because I am nosy but just to understand what made them become what they are today and to make sure I am dealing with a good company that I would associate with. So here is some interesting things I found out:

Lavender Cachet is located in the city of Grand Junction, Colorado, in the high desert and Rocky Mountain foothills region known as the state's Western Slope. The idea for our business came from the strong and expanding interest in lavender in and around the Grand Valley, where the local farmers have come to discover soil conditions here to be favorable to cultivating several varieties of the lavender plant. An increasing number of producers here are turning to this attractive crop and building strong followings, beginning with local farmers' markets and developing outward.

Our interest is further heightened when we look at the deep and exotic histories of lavender. Ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans all knew of lavender's calming and soothing qualities, and the knowledge of its legendary powers did not end there. Lavender comforted and calmed its way through the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the Victorian Era. It's done the same in modern times throughout the world. Lavender is now cultivated and exported throughout Europe, Asia, the Pacific Rim and North America. People all over the world have loved lavender for centuries and centuries.

Meet Nancy Johnson, the owner of Lavender Cachet. Educated as a Chemical Engineer from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, Nancy entered engineering school as a non-traditional student with two small children. Five years later the experience had taught her that if she (and her children) could survive engineering school, she could do anything.

As her career progressed through the years, Nancy found she had strayed away from the chemistry part of her education. Realizing she had been missing that part of her background, Lavender Cachet was born. "Getting back in touch with my inner chemist was exactly the right thing to do," says Nancy. Nancy lives in Grand Junction, Colorado, with her husband Terry, their basset hound Fred, and their two cats, Precious and Blue. Nancy and Terry have four grown children and one grandchild.

These sounds soo wonderful. I use baby powder, but would love lavender. I like rosehips, too. Sometimes I use bars of soap in with my lingerie to make the drawer smell nice, but this would be special!!!!
