Lavender Loveheart Brooches

Maybe you've seen the making of these little hearts in a previous post, maybe not.
This is the finished product, modelled and shot and in the shop!

Silky to the touch, sweet-smelling, girlie, lavender-filled lovehearts that you can carry with you all day long, pinned to your top, jacket or even your bag .

The colours: dusty rose pink, bright red, mellow burgundy, rusty orange and caramel brown.

I'm a big fan of lavender as well as lavender sachets.
 I think I was hooked when reading about  the long list of healing and therapeutic properties of the herb.

I've been meaning to make a special post about it for some time -and one of these days I will...

Until then, here's the skinny:
Lavender is well known for it's calming, soothing properties but it's actualy also a tonic and a stimulant and is used against exhaustion .

Anti-stress and anti-depressant, it relieves anxiety and can even help balance mood swings.

There's so many uses that the list seems endless......
......I'll have to make that post soon.
