LOVELY LAVENDER - Scott County Lavender Store -Jonesborough TN

LOVELY LAVENDER IN EVERY FORM YOU CAN THINK OF AND SOME I WOULD NEVER HAVE THOUGHT OF - they are all at Scott County Lavender Store in Jonesborough. The store smells heavenly and is full of interesting ways to enjoy and benefit from lavender.    My daughters and granddaughters will be glad I found it - I couldn't resist getting some gifts.   

Lavender store

The Gilliam family store is at 105 1/2 Fox Street, Jonesborough, just off Main Street - easy to find and there's plenty of parking.   My friend, Alison Gilliam, enjoys sharing her knowledge of lavender and lavender products, and I was amazed.  I knew I loved the scent and knew a little:

  • It smells good and makes my skin soft and silky
  • The the scent is relaxing, in bath, pillow, or wherever
  • It's available in lots of gifts and pampering forms

Here's some of what else I learned to augment my vague idea that LAVENDER had medicinal value also:

  • It's good for migraines - a drop or two of oil on the temple
  • It is an antiseptic, helps heal burns, scrapes, insect bites
  • It helps get rid of fungus in nails
  • It repels fleas and ticks, (there's even a "bow tie" for your dog's collar)
  • It is used in cooking - a whole rack of possibilities, cookbooks, etc.
  • It repels insects

LAVENDER has a fascinating history - ask Alison about the Great Plague, Mary's oil, etc. 

The store is open 10-5, Monday-Saturday.   Stop by the attractive store for many unique and useful items.   Contact Alison at alavendermanor@gmail.com or call at 423-753-2351.   They also ship, but it's more fun to browse.

Generations of the Gilliam family have been involved in lavender growing and products.   Ken and Alison live in a pre-Civil War home which has a tunnel that was part of the Underground Railroad and are active in Civil War re-enactments.
