The lavender we use in our products begins right here, in our front yard.
We grow a number of varieties for different uses, without using pesticides or artificial fertilizers, ever.
All of our lavender is harvested without harming insects or spiders. It's all cruelty free! 😊
And look at that smashing sombrero!
We extract the essential oils from the lavender via gentle steam distillation, one pot at a time. Unlike some of the larger producers, we only use the lavender flowers - not the stems - to extract the best product. Although this method is much more time-consuming, we believe the quality is more important than quantity.
Lavender essential oil - ready for use.
Admire the golden liquid oil on top of the hydrosol in the separatory funnel. Mesmerizing, no?
Lavender bunches for fresh summer bouquets, or dried for use in our unique lavender talc, lavender sachets and in some of our soaps.
