About Lavender Glycerite: This aromatic and yummy-tasting glycerite delights the senses, uplifts the spirit, and helps support a calm mind. Lavender has been valued through the ages in Europe, and more recently in North America, for the flowers' rejuvenating aroma, and for the many gifts Lavender so generously offers the human nervous, digestive, and respiratory systems. The potent essential oils in Lavender's purple flowers easily infuse into a sweet, organic glycerin base and have unique qualities that deeply soothe and elevate the spirit. Lavender helps us navigate emotional and mental stagnation, irritation, unrest, and tension. It is an appropriate choice for support during the day and night, for children and adults.
Lavender is an accessible herb that has an incredible ability to support a healthy digestive system, especially when experiencing occasional tension related to feelings of nervousness. Our Lavender Glycerite is an alcohol-free and delicious way to support constricted energy throughout the body, mind, and spirit. As a rejuvenative herb and brain tonic, Lavender also encourages a healthy night's sleep and a balanced response to everyday stressors.
Garden Notes: The ideal time for gathering Lavender is when the flowers first open. Here at Avena, we gently hold several stalks in one hand and cut them just above the leaves, then carefully lay the bundles in baskets, facing the same direction. These bundles are immediately prepared into our incredible Lavender Glycerite.
