Why I Love Working with Organic Dried Flowers and Herbs

As someone who loves working with natural ingredients, I have a particular fondness for organic dried flowers and herbs. Not only do they add a beautiful touch to any creation, but they also offer numerous benefits.

Take lavender, for example. Its soothing scent and natural calming properties make it a perfect addition to bath salts, candles, and soaps. Working with lavender has a calming effect on me and I find that I'm more patient with my toddler after a day of crafting with it.

Rose petals are known for their skin-nourishing properties and can be used in facial toners, while chamomile has a calming effect and can be added to tea blends or infused into oil for a relaxing massage. Whenever I work with chamomile, I find that I have the best night's sleep. It's as though the gentle fragrance of the herb lulls me into a peaceful slumber.

Peppermint is another herb that I love to work with. Its refreshing scent and cooling properties make it a great addition to body scrubs, lip balms, and foot soaks. I try to work with peppermint early in the morning to wake me up, but I still enjoy my morning coffee.

But there's something even more wonderful about these ingredients than just their properties and benefits - it's the effect they have on me while I'm working with them. There's something meditative about the process of measuring, mixing, and blending these natural ingredients together. The gentle rustling sound of the dried flowers and herbs as I handle them and the earthy fragrance they release creates a peaceful and calming atmosphere. It's as though I'm connecting with nature and finding inner harmony in the process.

And the best part about using organic dried flowers and herbs is that they are free from harmful chemicals and pesticides. This means that you can feel good about using them in your creations, knowing that they are not only safe for you, but also better for the environment.

Working with organic dried flowers and herbs is not only enjoyable, but also offers many benefits. From their beautiful appearance to their numerous properties, these natural ingredients are a must-have for any natural skincare or wellness enthusiast. And the peaceful, meditative effect they have while working with them, along with the added benefits they offer, make them even more special and worthwhile.
