Lavender is used for its balancing and soothing qualities, making it ideal for irritated skin and scalps. It is also great for calming the mind and aiding restful sleep. Thanks to the sugar it's made with, the syrup will be also a great humectant, maintaining moisture into the skin.
Lavandula angustifolia is a perennial, shrub-like plant that's part of the mint family. The violet flowers are picked as soon as they begin to open. They are then used fresh, distilled for oil, dried for use in infusions and tinctures, or simply for decoration.
