a little lifesaver...

oooweeee it's been a stressful week! the combination of bad eating, lack of sleep and (usually technology related) stressful moments has made me reach for one of my new favourite relaxing treatments. 

lavandin is an essential oil i picked up from neal's yard that quickly became a nighttime essential. the shop assistant told me that lavandin is a derivative of lavender and that they smell slightly different and have different uses. personally, i couldn't really smell the difference and ultimately i chose the lavandin over the lavender because it was almost half the price (£3.25 rather than £5.90).

as far as i know lavender can be applied directly to the skin as an anti-inflammatory which is not the case for lavandin, so for those looking for this to double as a beauty product you may have to pay the extra £2.65. instead, i just put a few drops on my pillow before bed and it helps me drift off to sleep :) very useful when i'm stressed out! it also makes my room smell really good, but isn't overpowering like some candles or incense can be. and it's organic! a really good buy and one i'd recommend to anyone feeling a little tense or in need of some well-deserved beauty sleep!
