Your Guide To All Things Lavender At Flora & Fauna!

Aug 05, 2022by Gabby - F&F

Lavender is such a beautiful ingredient that is being widely used in many natural products, across the board. It has a strong yet delicate floral smell that is evergreen woodsy at the same time. 

Lavender has been shown to reduce anxiety and stress, help with sleep, lift people's mood and bring about a sense of calmness. What's not to love?

Here at F&F, we have lots of Lavender Products — from hair and body, to natural soaps, essential oils, cleaning products and more! Let's check it out.

Lavender improves overall scalp health. If you're wanting to grow your hair fast, a healthy scalp is key! Lucky for you we have some lovely lavender products to wash your hair with. 

Dr Organic Lavender Shampoo & Conditioner contains purifying properties to help leave your hair feeling refreshed and restored. If you're a fan of bars, Ethique's Wombar and Kookaburra Conditioner (with hints of eucalyptus and lavender) will give you nourished and luscious locks!

Lavender is also great for helping with an itchy scalp and dandruff. If this is your goal, we recommend using Green People's Irritated Scalp Shampoo & Conditoner. If you have thin hair, try Andalou's Full Volume Shampoo & Conditioner. It uses lavender to stimulate the hair follicles and when mixed with biotin-b, it adds essential protein for thicker, fuller hair.
