Refreshing Lemons is the New Crabtree & Evelyn Verbena and Lavender Collection

by Roxanne C.
Crabtree & Evelyn Verbena & Lavender

Everybody knows what lavender is. That purple coloured flower that spa companies like to put into their aroma therapy oils. The one that puts the image of a whole field of purple into mind when the therapist massages your head. Now, now. Just to set things straight, this is lavender:


Lavender field

Lavenders all around. Smelling so sweet that even bees can’t resist.


Familiar scene. But what about verbena? It’s not some fancy pancy name Crabtree & Evelyn came up with for their Verbena and Lavender range. This is verbena:


Lemon Verbena

To be specific, this is lemon verbena.


Lemon verbena is a type of herb, looks something like mint, and it smells also something like mint – refreshing. When you mix verbena and lavender together, the final result is something that will wake you up on a lazy Sunday, something herbal and something you’d like your guy to smell like after an afternoon of soccer.

I don’t normally use soap bars on myself; I use them to clean the brush from my Sonic Cleanse. This one from Crabtree & Evelyn would work just nice! The collection is already out in stores (was launched in August) so do make your way down to take a closer look at it!
