If you prefer a scent that is not floral or sweet, you need to check out Claire Burke's Lavender Balsam. Men tend to love this fragrance because it is not too girly. It is a more masculine scent which we now refer to it as "the boyfriend fragrance". The lavender and balsam combination is winning combination. You probably did not know there are many different types of the lavender plant. The most fragrant Lavender plants are the Lavandin (Lavandula x intermedia). Several cultivars of English Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) are also prized for their delightful scent. Lavandula x intermedia, also called Lavandin, is a hybrid cross between Lavandula angustifolia and Lavandula latifolia.
That is probably more than you care to know, but the oil from these plants have many different uses. I just learned from the Today Show this morning that you can use the oil from the plant to reduce the irritation from bug bites. And Lavender oil is believed to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to heal minor burns. Research suggests that it may be useful for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness. It is just a great oil to have around your house!
Claire Burke uses the finest lavender oil to produce several of the signature fragrances. Check out the Lavender Balsam candle and home spray from the Diamond Collection by Claire Burke. This Lavender Balsam fragrance is a beautiful combination of Lavender, Citron, Sweet Grass, Rosemary and Sage Clary with a sensual wood mix of Balsam, Cedar and rich Sandalwood. At first sniff, the fragrance opens up fresh and clean, then tail notes of piney balsam keep the opening, airy aromas nicely grounded. The lavender promotes relaxation, as well as, rejuvenates and inspires. It is key to stress and tension.
The spray comes individual boxed in a bright lavender colored box with pops of gold. It is a great gift idea and looks lovely in a bronze engraved canister. It truly is a luxurious home spray. Place a few around your house. Simply pump a couple of sprays into the air (a little goes a long way). It will help you to unwind and relieve symptoms of anxiety.
