The best in beauty today heads to nature and a plant that produces both beautiful color and a scent that doesn't quit — lavender.

Long used for relaxation, lavender is cropping up everywhere from beauty products to an influx of essential oils. Over at Bath Haus a new lavender scent arrived in the beloved Lalicious Sugar Scrub. It's just what you'll want to use pre-shaving for legs that are smoother than ever. Bonus: try using before self tanning for a flawless bronze look.

If you really want to take the natural route, consider whipping up a concoction of your own with some lavender essential oil. Buy locally from an Oil Sista right here and use to diffuse in your home for a chill day and for better sleep at night. Lavender also moisturizes skin and freshens laundry with just a few drops. (Chat with the Oil Sistas or another expert about the best way to dilute and apply essential oils.)
