The calming effects of lavender have been well documented, and there's no better feeling than being relaxed. Give the gift of serenity and lavender-scented items this holiday season, plus give a gift back to a foster child in need when shopping at Lavender Life Company.

The most popular item in their shop, and their claim to fame, is the Xander Bunny! The Xander Bunny is a stuffed animal filled with fresh Lavender flowers, grown in our fields, and soothing Michigan cherry pits. The stuffed animal is designed to provide comfort and encouragement for children who are going through a rough time in their lives.

Owners Vic and Vickie Bennet created the Xander Bunny with foster children in mind; they wanted to ensure that every child in foster care didn't feel alone, and had something to help them get through the struggles of the foster care system.

When one of their daughters adopted their grandson, Xander, they noticed him struggling to adjust to his new home life after being in the foster care system. They gave Xander one of the bunnies, and he slowly was able to calm down and start living his best life with his new family

When customers buy a Xander Bunny, another will be given to a child in foster care somewhere in the country. The Xander Bunnies have been sent to local foster care centers like DHHS in Grand Rapids and Detroit, providing children an item to help bring peace during a time of transition.

Other than Bunnies, Lavender Life also sells calming products for adults too. They sell lavender-infused products like tea, a neck wrap, and even lavender chocolate!
