Sweet Dreams of Lavender

Monday is becoming so special with our Show and Tell at Make Mine Pink ( I had a pretty stressful week this past week (so glad it is behind me now) and I know the herb lavender has relaxation properties. I made sure to take time out for pampering myself with lavender shower gel and lavender body cream. I tell you, I slept like a baby that night. Oh sure, babies wake up every hour on the hour! No wonder I am so tired in the morning! All kidding aside, I can feel myself destressing when I am using lavender products in the shower and bath. Water (hydrotherapy) and herbs (aromatherapy) is how you can create a spa in your own home. Even 15 minutes for yourself will make you into a new person; one who can go on to Sweet Dreams. For more information about lavender or herbal spa products for men, women and children, go to my boutique The Polka Dot Rose ( and go to Body and Bath. Coming to the Retreat? There will be a special something for you from me from Switzerland!! Oooh I cannot tell! ssshh....see you there.
PS: Another "Something you may not know about me": I am a consultant for SwissJust, 80 year old family run business of the most wonderful herbal body care line from Walzenhausen, Switzerland in the northeast corner, by Lake Constance, and Austria.(where it is "Just", pronounced Yoost) Whew! Just Beautiful! Not cosmetics. It promotes wellness for everyone. I fell in love with the spa line in 1990 and it is a part of my life I wanted to share with you. After all, it is Show and Tell!

Lavender is my favorite scent. I can't wait for Retreat. Maybe that is why I was falling asleep doing dishes, my dish soap is lavender scented!

It's great to have a way to relax. I used to put lavender in my son's bath or spray it on his pillow when he was little to calm him down at night.
