Cravings are a well-known side effect of pregnancy. According to the Sun, a London tabloid, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, craves lavender shortbread. And no sooner did the Sun publish this article at then end of December 2012, than the story spread to the four corners of the world. And now, lavender shortbread is decidedly the ‘it’ biscuit.

Not surprising when you consider the therapeutic effects of lavender; this herb is known to relax spasms and benefit digestion as well as settle the stomach.
