Lavender has many benefits and uses. According to Black Doctor.org, lavender has medicinal properties and is ideal for aromatherapy. Common uses include cleansing and stress reduction. It is ingested and applied externally for these purposes. Understandably then, lavender is widely used in bath and body products. If you are a lavender enthusiast as I am, you may have specific requirements of what you want in lavender scented products. This may be a combination of specific scents, ingredients, and types of products such as body butter or soap. As I reviewed lavender scented offerings from companies under my “bath and body” category, I noticed a strong emphasis on natural, healthful, and quality methods and ingredients. This includes among others cold processed soap, “saponification,” and small batch production for freshness. Black Doctor.org provides information about beauty products and what chemicals to avoid, as skin absorption means what you put on your skin could affect your health.

Many products are available at brick and mortar stores, and several companies offer free shipping for online purchases above a certain amount.  Prices are reasonable. There are also numerous opportunities to sign up for rewards programs for extra savings. The table below lists companies, their lavender product offerings, along with additional notes.

I hope you find lavender products to suit your needs. Happy shopping!
