About Lavender

There are so many wonderful things to be said for lavender that it’s hard to know just where to begin … Lavender is one of the only essential oils that can be used directly on the skin.  Applied there, it can help induce relaxation and sleep; sooth minor cuts, scratches and burns; scent the skin with a light, flowery aroma.  Mixed with other ingredients, lavender oil soothes the skin in gentle aromatic soaps, lotions, crèmes, conditioners, shampoos, and other personal care products.  Lavender connotes joy, devotion, and luck, so it is often used to celebrate weddings and other special occasions.

Culinary lavender adds depth of flavor to literally hundreds of fine edibles.  Lavender rounds out the flavor of our herbs de Provence; it goes into our cake, cookie and pastry recipes.  The jams, honey, teas, confections and parfaits we offer all feature lavender, as do our rich and delicious chocolate-lavender-caramel covered apples – yummm!  A rich, slightly flowery taste, your mouth will first appreciate lavender at the tip of your tongue, and then at the back of your palette where the flavor will linger slightly and bring a smile to your face.X
