I love the smell of lavender. There are so many purposes for lavender. Lavender is an anti-inflammatory and can be used topically or internally. I had hurt my right hip while golfing a few months ago and a friend of mine had given me some lavender oil. So, I decided to use some on my hip and it seemed to help. Lavender is also a calming agent on the brain if you are going to sleep you might try a little lavender oil on your pillow.

If you would like to learn about lavender and make a fun weekend starting on Friday through Sunday it is the Lavender Festival in Palisade.
