Local Lavender to #doDifferent

As time goes on, many people are looking for natural alternatives to some of their everyday requirements - whether it is to help save the environment or to be kinder to their bodies. One popular natural ingredient loved by many is lavender and its essential oil. Lavender essential oil is known as the miracle oil - helping to relieve stress; headaches; muscle pain; healing burns, bites and wounds; as well as so many other health benefits. That is why this week, we are looking at a #doDifferent company that not only does miracles with a miracle oil, but is helping to uplift communities while they do.
