Hey guys! Today I am sharing with you my trip to Lavender by the Bay, the lavender field on the tip of Long Island. The first and second bloom is late June to mid July, and if you missed out there is another bloom later summer/early fall, you can check back their bloom schedule here. When you come make sure you visit their lovely shop first and take some souvenirs to support managing the flower field. You can get lavender honeys and fresh farm eggs if you come at the right time. They are delicious!
Lemon and lavender is the dream of mine. My lemon color dress is from Self Portrait you can get it on sale with incredible deal here.
I also would like to share with you my skin care toner made with lemon and lavender essential oil. I make tea with one organic chamomile teabag and one calendula teabag with 80ml of water, let it cool down and add 1/4 teaspoon of honey and stir, then I would add rose water, two drops of lemon essential oil and two drops of lavender essential oil. The toner has calming and healing properties given by chamomile and lavender, calendula is good for your eyes, lemon would brighten your skin ( only use at night), and together with lavender can help remove any dark spots you get from the sun. I would store it in the fridge and apply every night as skin toner. If you are wondering I have listed my tools below for your reference.
Hope you enjoy the weekend ahead and share with me your dream place to be!
