Our Lavender Holiday

I wanted today to blog about essential oils, and an experience I had in the South of France a few years ago. Maybe this was the time when I really got switched on to essential oils and their value for us all.

I went on summer holiday to a little self catering cottage to the north of Nice and the reason we chose this was because of the lovely photographs of the house, and of the promise that the nearest neighbour was 100 metres away. This appealed to our sense of privacy! We flew in to Nice airport and we hired a little tiny car. On the journey we, of course, were stunned by the scenery, the smells, and the warmth around us. However it wasn’t until we were on the approach to the village that we realised that we were right in the middle of a vast area of Lavender fields. Indeed it transpired that our cottage was owned by one of the Lavender farmers.
