What’s not to love about lavender?

Used to treat a range of ailments such as insomnia, migraines and joint pains, the aroma of lavender has a relaxing effect on the body as well as the mind and soul. It has a multitude of culinary uses and to top it all, lavender plants are an excellent way of attracting butterflies and bees in to the garden.

The simple aroma of lavender can aid relaxation.  Breathing in the scent of lavender lowers the heart rate helping you to drift off.  This is the reason we have chosen Cotswold lavender to put in our eye masks and soothing wheat wraps and why both have become part of our relaxation routine at the end of the day.

Did you also know that combining lavender and a shower cap can help combat dandruff!?  Simply combine 15 drops of lavender oil with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, warm it in the microwave and massage it in to your scalp.  Pop on a shower cap and leave for an hour before shampooing out.  After a few treatments, you should start to see the results.

Lavender is not just for the medicine cabinet though.  Why not try incorporating the leaves and flowers of lavender in to salads, vinegars, jellies, ice creams, soft drinks and cocktails? 

Most importantly of all though…..bees LOVE lavender and as we all know, bees as pollinators, are vital to our food chain.  What’s not to love?

Pucker up! It’s International Kissing Day

Kiss Me Shower CapAnd we have just the thing for those of you who are looking for an unusual but glamorous beauty gift for a loved one, who enjoys a bit of pampering "me time".  It's the very lovely Kiss Me luxury shower cap; finished off a charming cerise satin bow.

We are assuming you can’t afford to buy the original works of The Kiss by Gustav Klimt or Rodin, but think this pretty pink luxury shower cap, would make a suitable alternative, for those of you who are looking to shower someone with kisses!

All our caps are lined with a very soft, lightweight pvc fabric, to make them completely waterproof.  They are made to a generous size so that they don’t leave unsightly elastic marks on your forehead, whilst keeping your hair bone dry.  The signature Dilly Daydream frill also protects your face from the drying effects of water from the shower.

Our caps also make elegant swimming hats.  For those of you who want to keep your hair dry, without squashing your “do”, a Dilly Daydream bathing cap can make doing your lengths a very glamorous activity.  Whilst we are not suggesting you dive in off the 10m board, if you want to keep your head above water and prevent your hair from being splashed and coloured by chlorine, this is the perfect accessory to wear in the pool and the shower afterwards.
