Balancing and soothing
Delicately scented, rosemary and lavender make an excellent team to soothe and cleanse the skin and scalp. Lavender is also renowned for balancing sebum production, while rosemary gives shine to the hair.
To make infusions, herbs and flowers are gathered in a muslin cloth and steeped into hot water for several minutes, delivering their properties and wonderful aromas.
Native to the Mediterranean region, rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is an evergreen shrub that can grow to six feet tall. The plant is toning and believed to promote hair growth and prevent hair loss when applied to the scalp. Its antibacterial and antifungal properties also help limit dandruff.
Lavandula angustifolia is a perennial, shrub-like plant that's part of the mint family. The violet flowers are picked as soon as they begin to open. Lush purchase them from France.
