Love Getting Things For Free?

Who doesn't like to get something for free, right? The "Domestic Witch" is giving away a lavender kit on their blogsite. The contest called "Lavender Dreams" is to show appreciation for the many followers that have joined in on the fun and networking on the "Domestic Witch" blog.

Most people automatically think of relaxation when they hear about lavender but it has many other uses. For example, lavender tea offers not only relaxation but enhanced clarity.

Burning lavender with a little white sage or sweetgrass makes an excellent smudge for clearing or cleansing a sacred space, a house, or your car of negativity.

Lavender, chamomile, rose, and jasmine mixed in a spray bottle with a little water is an excellent room spray. The scent of all of them together is believed to enhance and evoke romantic emotions.

Lavender and rosemary mixed in sweet almond oil base makes an exceptional massage oil to relieve tension in tight muscles while leaving a scent that increases feelings of joy.

As with any herbs or essential oils it is important to research the precautions associated with them before using them. If you are using them on your skin you should test a small patch on the inside of your elbow at least 24 hours in advance to assure that you are not allergic. If you plan to drink teas made with herbs it is important to consider any medications that you are already taking to make sure that the herbs will not have a negative interaction with the medications. It is also important to get the highest quality herbs from a reputable grower. If you are pregnant or nursing seek the advice of your doctor before using any oils or herbs.

This is a wonderful opportunity to get a great gift for yourself or someone you love and to get it for free. Check out the Domestic Witch blog at www.domesticwitch.blogspot.com for complete contest rules. While you are there sign up to follow this blog to stay up to date with all the latest from the Domestic Witch.
