A Brief History of Vanilla
Vanilla is a wild plant that originated in the Caribbean as well as parts of southern and central America. In roughly 1427, the ancient Aztecs discovered the wondrous properties of black vanilla pods and began blending them with cacao to make chocolate and flavor their drinks. The Aztecs believed that the vanilla pods possessed great medicinal properties and it was often used as a calming agent as well as a general healing product.
The pungent aroma of vanilla can be linked to reduced stress and anxiety. The calming properties of this wonder plant have been proven to work actively on the central nervous system, soothing all concerns away – even if only for a moment. This is why I definitely recommend using my Calming Pillow, Bed, Sleep & Relaxing Room Spray, Lavender & Vanilla.The combination of lavender and vanilla will have you lulling off to sleep in no time. Say goodbye to insomnia-induced restless nights!
Moreover, vanilla can bring back memories of childhood in a flash. As many of our mothers and grandmothers used this aromatic in their baked goods, it can remind us of better times gone by and make us feel like giddy little kids again.
