Lavender, renowned for its calming properties, shares a special link with epilepsy. Lavender is commonly seen as a representation of loneliness and isolation, traits often linked with epilepsy. Notably, the use of pure essential lavender oils is believed to impart a calming influence on the body and mind, potentially aiding in the reduction of seizures.
By planting these seeds, you not only cultivate a garden of vibrant purple blooms but also symbolise your support for Purple Day – a global awareness day for epilepsy.
As your lavender plants flourish, so too does your impact. Proceeds from each purchase directly benefit the children and young people that Young Epilepsy supports, allowing them to grow and thrive.
Cultivate a garden of compassion, awareness, and beauty, knowing that your contribution extends beyond your garden gates, fostering a brighter future for those touched by epilepsy.
Grow your garden, grow hope, and help children and young people with epilepsy flourish.
