Crabtree & Evelyn Verbena and Lavender de Provence

    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:

    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.
