High on my travel bucket list is a trip to Provence. I dream of exploring this French region, taking in the cafés, the vineyards and the breathtaking views—especially the rolling fields of lavender:

I’m obsessed with lavender. It is my absolute favorite flower and scent. I’ve used it in soaps, bath salts and scrubs, and eaten it (it’s particularly good in vanilla cupcakes and lemonade, if you are looking for ideas).
Even though our Lavender soap is scented with Hungarian essential oil, when I smell it, I imagine this is what I would smell when I’m standing in the middle of one of those Provençal lavender fields. Which I will so do one day. Oh, yes, I will. Look out Provence; my passport is ready, even though my bank account isn’t…
