Lavender Harvest

The Lavender Fields were plentiful this season.
We grew 2 varieties this year.
A new one planted last year the variety 'Super'
This is one of the most elegant lavandins.
This variety features a light and flowery aroma.
Super has the best perfume of all lavandins
and is mainly used for soap fragrances
and aromatherapy because it produces a lot of oil.

The other variety we grew is 'Grosso'
Its long stems are excellent for
dried bouquets and potpourris. This is
our best-selling bunch,
a little darker in color than our new variety Super.

Our lavender is picked at its peak of perfection,
then quickly dried in our
attics of our shop.
Check our website for availability,

Lemon Balm Salve

Just made this wonderful smelling Lemon Balm Salve.
Made with essential oils of Melissa officinalis, (Lemon Balm)
Lemon, and Lemongrass. We infused Organic Olive Oil with
freshly, dried lemon balm leaves and let the oil brew for many
weeks in the summer sun. We added pure yellow beeswax, and
rosemary antioxidant for a natural preservative.

The Lemon essential oils have properties as a antiseptic,
astringent & antiviral. We recommend this salve from cold
sores to foot care. The scent is uplifting, and calming.
Very pleasant.
