Lavender's Powers of Socialization
There's something about lavender that promotes socialization. The fragrance, the soft colors, the beauty of this plant, and the farm it is grown on promote relaxation and time with friends. Actually, I've never found a stranger at a lavender farm! This common interest promotes chatter, sharing, and time together.
Umbrellas and chairs, picnic tables, shady spots with green grass, and cute little nooks and corners all create places to spend time with others. A cup of lavender lemonade, a picnic lunch, or some delicious chocolate-lavender ice cream are all things that are easily shared in such a soothing setting.
Spending time cleaning lavender bud, creating small lavender bundles to be used on wreaths, or weaving wands or lavender baskets are all activities that can be observed on a lavender farm. If you are looking for the perfect 'spa' day, you might consider the aromatherapy factor and visit a lavender farm with a friend. Tranquility!
