Ordering Information (Minimum order is $25, before shipping.)

Harvest 2021 is 80% Hidcote purple & Violet Intrigue Lavandula angustifolia: everyone's favourite deep sweet purples. The other variety is a slender French Maillette blue I was gifted by the aromatherapist Jeanne Rose. Her absolute favourite to distill for oils. That being said, scent also equals taste! So both these varieties of Sweet Lavender are choice in the kitchen as well as scented projects for bath & beauty products or crafts.
Harvest time is every July ... Look for fresh Lavender bundles then, followed by dry bundles in August: fresh or dried all bundles $8 each
Ask about loose Lavender buds by the pound:
all food grade.
Please call ahead or e-mail LYNDA at 250-474-5767
*Important: All dried Lavender smells stronger when handled.
Squeeze your sachets now & again to break the tiny cell walls on the flower buds and release more naturally stored fragrant oils. Cooking with Lavender, Teas with Lavender or projects like Lavender Bath salts; release the scent/flavour through the action of heat or hot water.When working with bundles where you are keeping the flower heads intact ~ it is easy to enhance the scent with a few drops of pure Lavender essential oil discreetly added on the bundles!
A little goes a long way.
