Frequently asked questions
What are the benefits of lavender?
Lavender has many benefits to the mind, body, and soul. It has soothing properties that promote relaxation for the mind and body. It can be used for its aromatic properties in its dried form and sachets.
How do I care for my dried lavender bunches and saches?
Lavender’s lovely fragrance comes from the essential oils locked inside the lavender buds. If your lavender ever loses its fragrance, gently pinch a couple of the flower buds to release the scent. If your sachet or pillow loses its scent, just give it a little squeeze to release the fragrance.
What is lavender?
Lavandula (lavender!), is a genus of 42 species of flowering plants in the mint family, Lamiaceae. Lavender has an aromatic smell and is known for its soothing and relaxing benefits. We offer lavender in many of its different forms including fresh (when in bloom) dried, loose, as an essential oil, and more.
How do I care for my fresh lavender bunches?
Lavender is best dried! Never place your fresh bunches in water, as the stems will absorb the water and rot over time. If you want your lavender to dry straight, we suggest you split your bunches into 2-3 smaller bunches and secure with a rubber band. Using an opened paper clip, attach the clip to the rubber band and hang your bunches upside down on a clothes hanger in a dry area. After 4-7 days combine your bunches and place in a vase. We recommend you use a vase with a wide opening and remove the rubber band so the stems can breathe; this will prevent the stems from getting moldy. If your lavender starts to wilt, hang it upside down and follow the instructions above.
