I love lavender.
Lavender is so easy to plant and look after. It flourishes year after year, has a lovely, soothing scent, is known to induce relaxation, and keeps the moths away. Put a lavender plant on your kitchen windowsill and fill sachets of lavender blossoms to put in your cupboards.
An elderly friend saw that my hair had been losing its luster. And she said to take one egg yolk, olive oil, juice of one lemon, mix it together in a bowl, and use my fingers or a basting brush, to rub or brush the mixture thoroughly onto my scalp, around the hair roots, and onto the hair. Then wrap a towel around my hair for two hours, then rinse with lukewarm water and shampoo as usual. I followed her instructions and sure enough, my hair shiny and had more body than it has had in a long time.
