Bosistos Lavender Review and Giveaway

I recently received several Bosisto's Lavender products to review and giveaway and they happened to arrive  shortly after one of my day care children had been sick on my carpet.

Talk about good timing!

Anyone who has ever been in this situation knows it's a tricky one. You obviously need to clean the carpet as soon as possible but there's also a sick child to attend to.

...and then there's that awful lingering smell.

Thankfully Bosisto's Lavender spray works wonderfully as a room deodoriser and I've been using it ever since, it's also especially useful after changing nappies and to freshen up rubbish bins.

I love the scent of lavender and it takes me back to my childhood when I used to pick it from my Aunts garden and make little lavender bags with it, I think they may have been the start of my love of embroidery.

I have a child who is cutting teeth at the moment, her second year molars, so she hasn't been sleeping well. Since I received the Lavender pack I have made it part of our nightly routine to spray her bedroom about 10-15 minutes before Evie is going to bed and I really think it has help her settle.

Some of the special features of Bosisto's Lavender Spray are:

*  Contains 100% pure, natural Lavendula angustifolia, Lavender Oil
*  Natural antibacterial, antiseptic & insect repellent
*  Only spray on the market with 100% pure Lavender Oil
*  Calms, soothes and relaxes for insomnia & mild anxiety
*  Cleans, freshens and deodorises, especially musty areas.

I recently had an hour or so to kill before a Doctor's appointment so I decided to wander through Spotlight to see if I could get any craft ideas and to see what Christmas fabrics they had in stock.

Big mistake!

I am a little addicted to fabric, okay a lot, and I have a rather large stash that I love looking at but I have no idea what I'm going to do with it.

I walked out of Spotlight with another another 17 pieces to add to my stash!

My favourite fabric of the day had the words London written on it with images of crowns, guards and carriages printed on it.

I had to have it.

I'm still not sure what I'm going to do with it but to start with I have made myself an owl softie that I have named Oxford.

I think he's very cute.
