There is no denying the overwhelming popularity and benefits of the lavender plant. Throughout history, lavender has promoted healthier skin and good hygiene, and today it is synonymous with relaxation and self-care. Here at Potager Soap Company, we find tremendous benefits in using certified organic lavender oil and organic lavender buds in several of our soaps.

As a member of the mint family, lavender is used globally and is native to Europe, North Africa, East Africa, and the Middle East. The Romans used lavender oil in their baths and also to heal indigestion and colds. The Greeks & Egyptians used lavender in perfumes, massage oils, cosmetics, and more. Lavender oil is extracted from the plant with steam distillation, and the oils are used widely in health and beauty products around the world. 

There have been numerous studies on lavender oil, and today we're sharing some of the reasons why Potager loves using organic lavender in its cold process soap.

Breathing lavender is encouraged when treating stress and anxiety. The scent of lavender can improve stress levels, improve mood, and help people feel calmer. Starting the day or ending the day with the aroma of lavender in your shower or bath can do wonders for relaxation. 

Along with providing stress relief, the smell of lavender can relieve headaches, release built-up tension, and can help manage migraine attacks. Showering with a bar of soap with organic lavender oil can help the early onset of migraine headaches.

Similar to how lavender reduces stress and improves mood, it also helps you fall asleep. Often used in tea, bath salts, and massage oils, the scent of lavender can help you fall asleep. Sleeping in a bedroom with fresh lavender and bathing with a bar of lavender soap could be a component of an effective and relaxing bedtime routine. Studies have shown that lavender can improve sleep, reduce anxiety, and provide calming effects.

Sensitive Skin
Finding soap for sensitive skin can be challenging due to the harsh chemicals and preservatives added to conventional bars of soap. Potager offers a better solution by crafting soap with a certified organic olive oil base. Potager’s lavender bar soaps use certified organic lavender oil and lavender buds, and our soaps are gentle enough for the face. Customers can also rely on Potager to preserve its artisan soap with certified organic rosemary extract instead of harsh ingredients. 

The lavender plant is naturally anti-inflammatory and antiseptic, and it can soothe sunburns and reduce scarring. These properties make lavender soap an effective way to reduce skin inflammation and treat skin conditions. Adding lavender to your daily hygiene routine can help you combat inflammation daily.

Skin Healing
Lavender can heal wounds because of its antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Research shows that lavender has an acceleratory effect on healing wounds. Lavender also contains polysaccharides, which help ease inflammatory diseases like rheumatism and arthritis. When showering with lavender soap you continuously assist the healing process of any cuts or abrasions you may have. 

Insect Repellent
Lavender oil is a natural insect repellent that is perfect when you're in the backyard or hiking a trail. Showering with lavender soap in combination with using an organic lavender insect repellent will help improve your outdoor time.

Muscle Aches
Lavender oil is often infused in massage oil, and spa’s often use lavender oil in diffusers. Using an organic lavender soap can help reduce muscle and joint pain while relaxing the mind. A long hot soak could be exactly what’s needed after a day of physical and mental activity.

The lavender plant is beautiful, beneficial for the skin, provides mental health benefits, and smells fantastic. For these reasons, Potager continues to use certified organic lavender in its handcrafted soap.
