Lavender

Oil study painted from life

Lavender has been in bloom for quite a few weeks now. The essential oil is one of my favourites. I use it a lot in diffuser blends (I particularly like blending it with rosemary and lemon). Sometimes I add a few drops to a vegetable carrier oil to make a moisturiser.

This is a small oil study of some lavender sprigs and a sweet little plate (that I use as a soap dish!)
