At Fragrant Isle lavender, farming is a serious endeavor. Great care is taken to nurture the lavender plants ensuring a bountiful harvest. Hard work and a high standard of excellence, enables Fragrant Isle to produce some of the very finest lavender products on the market today. The criteria used when selecting the small, artisanal companies chosen as our manufacturing partners were commitment to quality, purity, and value.
Fragrant Isle does not discount its products because the clientele who purchase them understand the value they receive with each selection they make. We are not in business to produce cheap product.
