Lavender has been been coveted for thousands of years. Used by the Egyptians, the Romans and later, by queens and royals, the purple flowering plant is ubiquitous in soaps, lotions, perfumes and even honey.
But, y’all? Some products smell SO much better than others! L’Occitane’s Lavande line is one of the good ones. Wow, does it smell incredible! The French company will tell you on its website that lavender was one the first flowers distilled by L’Occitane founder Olivier Baussan and its still sourced from farmers’ cooperatives in Haute-Provence. Well, that must be it. Your next hostess gift solved!
