From ancient time, besides being a symbol to express different sentiments and feelings without using words, flowers and different other parts of a plant (roots, stem, leaves, seeds) are used for the benefits they provide to our well-being.
What exactly can express a rose or lavender flower?
The ancients Greeks and Romans used rose flowers as a symbol of love and passion to convey messages without words. Each color had its own meaning: red expressing passion; white being the symbol of innocence; yellow for friendship; pink for admiration and gratitude; orange for enthusiasm and desire; lilac and purple for love at first sight. [Ref1]
On the other hand, lavender flowers represent purity, innocence, serenity, devotion, grace and calmness. [Ref2] Its soft and sweet flower scent is soothing and promotes relaxation and sound sleep. Being one of the most versatile and used plants in the word, from ornamental gardens, potpourris, culinary herbs, aromatherapy to traditional medicine, lavender had became an indispensable plant to everyone.
For us, at Green Acre Scent, rose and lavender flowers are very close to our heart. We are in love with their scent, their velvet touch, elegance and we do cherish them for all the benefits they provide to our skin. This is one of the reasons we use their buds, petals and essential oils in a variety of our skincare products alongside other amazing botanicals nature provides us with.
Today, we are excited to introduce to you Rose and Lavender Soaps (just in time for Valentine’s Day), two newly created botanical soaps made with much love for our skin (as we always do) using organic rose petals respectively lavender flowers.
