Lavender love



My earlier posts this week were scheduled.  I knew that I wouldn't have the time or focus to post due to my three yr old daughter having surgery on Monday.  It was fairly routine and she is doing great, but one night in the hospital and watching your love being put under anesthesia is enough worry. The surgical waiting room in a children's hospital is intense...a mix between worry, feeling lucky and putting things perspective is an emotional roller coaster.  

A few weeks ago, I received a sample of some Dr. Hauschka products and one just happened to be Lavender Bath.  And, although, I haven't had time for a bath, I stuck my little sample in my emergency makeup bag and pulled it out for a little sniff here and there, to get through our waiting period.  It's a supple oil that I can dab on a wrist or temple for a little instant comfort.  I also mixed it with my hand cream for extra moisture.  A little goes long way with this product.

I promise to catch up on some reading this weekend!

Oh no! So sorry to hear she had surgery. Glad she is ok. I love lavender. Bought it in bulk once to make sachets and loved how my craft closet smelled with ut all in there!

I am so happy to hear that she is okay. I know exactly what you mean about 'emotional roller coaster' weeks... and although they're often filled with stress and anxiety- they definitely put things into perspective. xoxo {happy weekend, my friend =)}
