Here is a post to share a couple of natural beauty care ideas with lavender flowers 🕊 a couple of the ideas include creating a natural face scrub with honey and lavender flowers, taking a warm bath with bath salts, lavender oil and lavender flowers and creating a lavender pillow with dried lavender flowers and buds 🌸 as noted on the Natural Living Ideas website, lavender offers a lot of different uses and has been used for centuries because of its cleansing and healing properties. I hope the beauty care ideas could be helpful in case you love lavender flowers a lot too or are hoping to try a couple of natural beauty and skin care ideas for self care, or to share the ideas with a friend.
Here is a post to share a couple of nature poems I wrote, and a couple of notes and tips about how I wrote the poems, in case you are hoping to write a nature poem too 🕊 one of the poems is about spring blossoms (there is a spring blossom tree just close by to our garden at home, and the spring blossoms look so lovely when they flower in early spring) 🌸 the second poem is a summer sunset poem about a sunset by the ocean (all of the colours of the ocean and sky look so beautiful as the sun is going down) 🕊 a couple of the tips noted about how you could write a nature poem too include finding an idea, inspiration, carefully considering the idea, inspiration and all of the different parts, and finding a careful structure for the poem.
I have been using lavender oil for a couple of years, both in the bath with epsom bath salts, in a lavender and honey face scrub and sometimes on my pulse points just before going to bed, to help to have a calm sleep. Lavender oil has a very nurturing and calming scent and lavender flowers are one of my favourite flowers 🕊🌸 there is a lavender farm quite close to where I am from and I enjoy going there a lot, and also hope to go to see the lavender fields in the countryside in Provence, France too. Here are a couple of beauty care tips, sharing a couple of ways you could use lavender oil to help to look after your skin.
I bought a copy of a book called Earth to earth from a bookshop a couple of years ago and the book has a beautiful cover with a photograph of a sculpture, which is noted to be made from pumice stones and to be positioned in a calm pond. The reflection of the sculpture helps to create a circle shape, and the book has a lot of photographs of circle shape sculptures made from natural materials and photographed in nature.
I have been using the purifying face cleanser by Neutrogena naturals for a couple of years now and the cleanser is the one I use most often, both in the morning and evening. The purifying face cleanser is gentle and reliable, helps to gently remove make up and cleanse the skin, and could hopefully be found at your local shop or supermarket 🍃
Here are a couple of recipes with honey, found in the healthy foods and superfoods book 100 Best Health Foods. I have always loved honey on its own or in a warm lemon, honey and ginger drink, and honey is also one of my favourite ingredients to include in baking or cooking recipes. When I was little I enjoyed watching the bees and honey bees in the garden, and was always curious about where the bees would go after gathering pollen from the flowers, and how the honey was made 🌸

Here is a recipe for a lavender and honey face scrub I used to make when I was studying at University and had an assignment or was feeling a bit worried coming up to exams. The face scrub is made with quite simple ingredients (including lavender flowers, lavender oil, (organic) honey, lemon juice, brown sugar and organic coconut oil) you could hopefully find in your garden and at your local shop 🌸
