Come to The Lavender Brat

 
Here's a little hint: Next time you're vacuuming, sprinkle some dried blossoms on the floor and fill the room with fragrance.

Have you ever crushed a lavender bloom in your hand and felt the oil on your skin? Unlike its sister blossoms that tend to be more appealing to women, the lavender fragrance is a more complex scent which appeals to both genders, making it one of the more popular essential oils.

In Home Sweet Sonoma, we introduce you to Gracie Taylor’s shop, The Lavender Brat, on the Sonoma plaza. It was ground zero for all things lavender. Gracie spent her day blending exotic oils, used in her bottled perfumes, massage oils, soaps and lotions. Her special teas and herbs add unique flavors for cooking up earthly delights. It takes a lot of tiny buds to make one precious drop of lavender oil. Like Gracie, local chefs love her creations and you can see her influence all across the Sonoma Valley.

Locals can’t stop by Gracie’s store without a visit behind the shimmery gold curtain that Gracie called The Sugar ‘n’ Spice Corner. They would come in, hoping to get their hands on her Second Chances body oil and other exotic custom blends for couples wanting to amp up their love life.

Aren’t you dying to get some yourself? (Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.)
