Renaissance Lavender | Review

Renaissance Lavender Review  brandie-sellers.com

Over the last few years I’ve really gotten into loose leaf tea. Specifically minty teas. So when I ran into Tea in the Tower by Renaissance Lavender at a craft fair almost two years ago now, I knew I had to try it. It seemed like a little hand crafted luxury to take home with the lavender buds peaking through the minty tea leaves.

For the last two seasons Downton Abbey was on, I’d brew my minty lavender tea and curl up on the couch with my warm mug of tea to soak in the newest episode. The smell was so comforting and the lavender was rather relaxing at the end of the day. This tea blend has ended up being one of my favorite teas to keep on hand. The last time I was at her booth, I managed to snag the last lavender infused honey (hello mega health benefits!). I was excited to use the honey and keep the bottle to use later as a bud vase.

Every time I’ve walked up to the Renaissance Lavender booth at a craft fair, I can’t help but fall in love with all the fun products she offers and seeing them set up at her booth. Not to mention the intoxicating fragrance of lavender wafting out from her booth! Spend five seconds just standing near it and you’ll instantly feel more relaxed. I love it! It’s honestly one of my favorite things about visiting her booth!

In my most recent visit, I took probably about twenty minutes trying to decide between the goodies I wanted to bring home (and that nasty thing called “budget” comes into play here…). I finally decided on a lavender neck wrap (which you can put in the microwave to heat up to ease muscle tension or put in the freezer) and the linen sachet bag, which was honestly too pretty not to take home! My husband and I have used the neck wrap plenty of times to ease headaches, achy shoulders, and even to just sooth our sinuses. We love it!

Renaissance Lavender has definitely made a lasting impression on me and I hope I always have her hand crafed goods on hand. I truly look forward to visiting her booth again in the coming fall season, ready to smell that wonderful lavender again!

If you’re not local, she has a wonderful Etsy shop, which you can find here.
