Regular readers will know I love Bosisto’s products. Open pretty much any cupboard in my house and you’ll find something – clean, deodorise, disinfect, launder , treat, soothe and ease, it’s all taken care of by Bosisto’s in some way.
Until recently though I hadn’t tried the Lavender range – mainly because my allergies have allergies and I’m always super careful with anything perfume-y because I’d rather not spend the next hour sneezing until I look like a watery eyed Rudolph. Lavender, though, is all kinds of awesome. Known for its calming properties and gentle scent, lavender is also a natural deodoriser, antiseptic and insect repellent. Thankfully, to date I’ve had no adverse reaction to Bosisto’s Lavender, I wish I could say that for the outside in general at this time of year.
Lavender Oil has so may uses, I like to drop a little onto my wheat heat bag at the time of the month when I most need a little calm but it’s also good for helping to heal/disinfect insect bites, minor cuts & abrasions and of course it’s lovely in an oil burner to scent a room.
Dex has recently toilet trained (yay, yay, yay!) so our house no longer has the vague smell of gross that comes with having a child in nappies but I do like to freshen a room before bed and the Lavender Spray is fantastic for that. Bosisto’s Lavender products are made with 100% pure Lavendula angustifola, a premium grade lavender oil clinically proven to assist in relieving stress and promoting a peaceful night’s sleep so I’ve been spraying his room before the nightly battle begins to help calm not only the little boy who doesn’t want to sleep but also the mum or dad who has totally had enough.
Bosisto’s Lavender Solution is pure oil in a water soluble base that is just perfect for using around the home. I keep a spray bottle of the eucalyptus solution under the sink in the kitchen and have added another bottle so I can keep some of this at the ready too. It’s also easy to add into the wash to help deodorise or just add a lovely smell to your linen or towels. We washed our bedsheets with some solution and they smell so warm and comfortable – climbing into bed just smells sleepy.
Bosisto’s is available in Woolworths, Independent Supermarkets and Pharmacies, visit www.fgb.com.au for more information on stockists.
