ALL THINGS LAVENDER

Out of all the pretty pastel colors out there, lavender has the most meaning to its name and purpose.

Going back as far as 2,500 years; in ancient times, lavender was used for mummification. The latin root for lavare (to wash) was used as a perfume for bathing or scenting the air.  When you smell a piece of lavender, it has such a soft and soothing scent.  When you see the color, it has such a calming effect on our mood.  Just thinking about it, is making me feel relaxed (lol).  Now, I invite you to look at some of the beautiful lavender images I put together.
