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?

Vintage Rose lavender eye mask – the gift of a perfect night’s sleep

What’s not to love about a lavender eye mask?  They promote a good night’s sleep, they soothe away tension, help banish headaches and block out the light.  We’ve even heard that they can reduce snoring! What better gift to give a friend?

And now with our new Vintage Rose lavender eye mask, you too can be a sleeping beauty. Trimmed in pink satin, backed in soft velvet with a comfortable but elegant wide lace elastic, this is, in our opinion, a must have for anyone looking for a perfect night’s sleep.

Unlike some more gimmicky sleep masks available, this won’t scare off any suitors and there are no fiddly ties that will come undone in the night. 

This eye mask is the latest creation in the Dilly Daydream Vintage Rose range.  If you are looking for gift ideas, why not team up with a luxury shower cap, towelling turban or a cute drawstring wash bag, a perfect size toiletry bag for a cheeky weekend away.
