SWEET SUMMER FLOWERS…
“April showers bring May flowers!”
Everyone knows that spring is the season of spectacular blooms, right? Well, not exactly. This husbandry tidbit has been around since the 1500s, and while it’s true that blossoms start springing up in May, did you know that many familiar flowers actually bloom in the summertime? And, these summertime beauties are more than just pretty to look at, they have some beautiful pampering applications too. So without further ado, here are three summer flowers perfect for your festival flower crown AND your skincare routine.
This dusty purple flower blooms right in the heart of summer from the end of June through July and early August. This gorgeous herb has a smooth and calming fragrance that makes it the perfect addition to your nighttime pampering routine. In fact, studies have shown that lavender oil triggers the brain and nervous system to produce a physical calming effect. And, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center lavender may also have “antiviral and antibacterial properties.”
You’ll find lavender oil in our most relaxing products, like our Sleepy Sleep essential oil and shea butter stick, our soothing Field Better Soon Chunk, Sleepy Sleep bath salts, and our new Good Hydrations In Shower Body Lotion.
Certain types of roses bloom all throughout the summer season. Simultaneously delicate and strong, their distinctive scent is THE floral fragrance, what many think of when they hear the word. But these gorgeous flowers don’t just look and smell lovely, they’re actually useful in skincare too. Rose oil has antioxidant properties and according to makeup artist Gina Brooke in an interview with Elle, rose oil “reduces redness and calms the skin” making it great for even sensitive skin types.
These mesmerizing water blooms are another summertime beauty. Highly symbolic and revered in many eastern cultures, these lovelies have a fragrance as gorgeous and unique as the flowers themselves. Fragrantica (https://www.fragrantica.com/notes/Lotus-27.html) describes it as a “floral note with watery, aqueous qualities, light and ethereal, with a lightly sweetish tonality.” And it has antioxidant and moisturizing properties!
You’ll find lotus extract and it’s otherworldly fragrance combined with earthy cedar wood in our new Full Moon Chunk.
