This weekend, we made a healing balm, using a Lavender oil made from Lavender from the Global Gardens herb patch. This was the first of our Healing Workshops in the Greenhouse and it was great to have a warm and sheltered space to make this remedy.
For the balm, the cut Lavender was dried, infused in the almond oil for 4 weeks. We then strained the oil and added it to melted cocoa butter and beeswax. We added some Lavender essential oil to heighten the properties.
Lavender alleviates anxiety, calms and can be used to enhance sleep. It also has antimicrobial properties and can help heal scars.
