Not only does lavender smell divine, it also has healing properties that are said to reduce stress, help with anxiety and even ease mild pain. As we adjust to a 'new normal', it's no wonder many of us are seeking a moment of calm in amongst a new and unexpected way of living. That's why we believe it's never been more important to take a moment to yourself to pause, unwind and look after your wellbeing. With bath and body care fragrances inspired by the natural beauty of our island home, take a moment to reconnect with nature with our naturally relaxing scents. \nRevealing expert insights from our Product Manager, Robin Fisher, here we uncover five reasons to love lavender, as well as how our island-inspired scents can help to relax and reset mind, body and soul. \n\nLavender is more than just a fragrant plant - it has been used since ancient times for all sorts of ailments, including insomnia and skin blemishes. There’s even plenty of research to suggest that lavender helps with mood – reducing stress and anxiety, which is why so many calming treatments and therapeutic products contain lavender as the main ingredient.\n\n- Robin Fisher, ARRAN Sense of Scotland Product Manager\n\n\n01.
