Our helping elves have prepared “pounds of organic bulk loose lavender”, and priced it at a Blow-Out special for your last minute gift ideas.  You could use it for making sachets, sleep-aids, eye pillows, or add it around your house for that wonderful warm, calming fragrance of organic Lavender. Lavender helps calm stressss & encourages “restful sleep”. It’s one of my favorite things for relaxation!

Another favorite thing that I love to do for relaxation, is baking breads. So, today I’m taking the day off from packing up web-orders, and baking my favorite Christmas “Stollen” Bread. It is filled with my dried Pears, Apples, and Pluots, from this summers harvest, along with walnuts and raisins . I love the old fashion flavor that this holiday yeast bread has from the ‘Anise’ seed, vanilla, and fruits. There isn’t anything better than the incredible aroma rising from the oven while this bread bakes. Well, there is one thing better, and that’s the yummy taste of this warm bread with butter, fresh out of the oven!!:)

I hope you are taking a few moments to relax, light a candle, and listen to your favorite Christmas music, with your family and friends.

Merry Christmas to you and your family from The Lavender Lady. Have a blessed holiday!
