Lavender is one of the most well-known herbs and medicinal plants. Known as "miracle healer", lavender has soothing, cooling and healing properties on the skin. That's why lavender works best in soothing products, such as after-sun spray mists or calming night creams.
Lavender aroma can be quite overpowering and it's best to use maximum of 30% of lavender water in most formulations. When used with chamomile waters, lavender has a distinct calming effect, when mixed with peppermint hydrofoil it can be amazing at itchy skin relief.
