Welcome to The Lavender Hytta! I am so glad you found me and chose to learn more about this blog!
The Lavender Hytta became my brain child late in 2015. I had discovered the joy of oils a little over a year before this and it has taken that long for my love and joy of essential oils to develop into a full-blown passion.
Im sure some of you are wondering why the name The Lavender Hytta… Hytte in Norwegian is a small cabin that most families have either in the mountain or near the lakes or ocean. They use this cabin to get away and reconnect with the world around them. Our family’s Hytte is on the mountain about an hour from where we live. Up at the Hytte there is no running water or electricity just beautiful nature all around us. This is one of the most inspiring places to be as you can truly get away and get back to your roots. Thus when I worked on building the platform for the blog as well as the thought process behind it I did it at our Hytte so The Lavender Hytta was born!
If you are Norwegian I am sure have noticed I have misspelled Hytta. If you aren’t Norwegian let me explain Hytta literally translates in The Hytta. Howeever, I wanted it spelled with an A because one my blog is mine, two the title isn’t all in Norwegian so it is not meant to be fully translated and third because both of our kids name’s start with A. While I know this isn’t grammatical correct I have learned when translating from one language to another isn’t as easy or clean cut as most people believe it is.
I enjoy and love using essential oils in every part of my day and each day I learn something new. My love of essential oils provoked me to look into our natural forms of health care and so I found Herbalism. I instantly fell in love after trying a few recipes and now I am hooked!
The Lavender Hytta is all about the journey to become much healthier using the forms of nature. I want to inspire you and educate you on this journey about how you can enter into the worlds of both Oils and Herbs. In addition to utilizing Herbs and Oils in our Daily lives and helping others do the same The Lavender Hytta is about creating a wonderful life so on occasion you might find a Home project, a recipe or a little tidbit about the move to Norway!
I will be sharing information on my favorite essential oils and herbs, how to use them, real food recipes, how to switch out your chemical cleaning cabinet with DIY cleaners that are safe for even the youngest members of the family and also easy DIY recipes for beauty products and more!
I am still learning as this is a never-ending education field and I love it! I encourage you to learn and grow with me!
I hope you will love what you see and become inspired to jump into the world of essential oils and herbs. Feel free to send me a little message even if it’s just to say hi! I love to connect with my readers.
