Not only does lavender smell good it’s also beautiful

soap-2726387_1920One of my favorite soothing, relaxing scents is lavender. We have several lavender plants in our yard because not only does it smell oh so good, it also provides the most vibrant purple color in our yard when it is in bloom.  Which if you’ve ever driven by a lavender field you know what I’m talking about.  And since I love lavender so much when I stumbled across this week’s business of the week I knew I had to share it with you….Suzi’s Lavender

Suzi’s family started harvesting wild elderberries and has been making all-natural healing salves since 1865.  In addition to harvesting elderberries they also harvested other wild ingredients too.  I love looking back and seeing what natural products previous generations used to help heal themselves and I know that slaves are one of the ways they used to cure some of the following things:

  •  Cuts
  • Wounds
  • Burns
  • Infections

Another great benefit to salve is that it can help with cracked fingers and heals which Suzi’s found helpful during the cold, dry Nebraska winters.  Using their knowledge they also formulated skincare products as well.

At this time Suzi has grown the business to include three families of products and they are working on a fourth.  The products are formulated to be all-natural and support all skin types and skin conditions.  My daughter who has eczema has always benefited from the soothing calm of lavender.  If you suffer from a skin condition such as eczema please consult with your physician before trying something new because while lavender has been helpful to her it may not be the case for everyone.

In addition to the salves and all natural skin care products Suzi’s also has lavender hand sanitizer, which I’m really excited to get because I don’t know about you but I’m tired of my hand sanitizer smelling like cheap tequila.  LOL.

Suzi’s is a member of the Forest Grove Chamber of Commerce so while her products are available strictly online they are a local business.  I hope you find something amazing to try.
