First off, anything by Natures Alchemy is fantastic. Being a fomer associate at The Vitamin Shoppe, I was introduced to the entire line and learned about the brand and every benefit it holds. Lavender was my absolute favorite. When I purchased lavender, my go to idea was to put a few drops in a small spray bottle of water and use it as a night time spray before bed. If you spray a little on your bedding and in the air it really does create a calming atmosphere. You can also dab a little on your temples for headaches or purchase an oil burner and use it place of a candle!
