The scent of lavender has long been associated with promoting a great night’s sleep. My fondest memory of the scent of lavender is on the warm, cuddly fur of our family cat Pusula. My father had a large lavender bush in our garden, and Pusula would plant himself in the scented bushes for long, lazy summer siestas. Then somewhere through my night slumber, I’d feel his grubby paws climbing over my sheets and he wold curl up into a ball of fluff, heavily intoxicated with the calming scent of lavender.
