Lavender, lavender everywhere. Seems people cannot get enough lavender! We have two varieties of lavender essential oil (40/42 and organic Buena vista), lavender butter, organic lavender hydrosol, organic lavender buds, and organic lavender oil extract! Yes!!! All your lavender dreams come true!
Seriously, though, these little adorable organic lavender buds pack a punch for aroma! I can smell the box all in the way in the office when they are packing these up in production.
Organic Lavender Buds can be used in so many things. Candles; bath soaks; bath bombs; sachets; bath teas; hydrosols; oil extractions; tinctures…you name it.
Facial steaming products are becoming very popular and these dried organic lavender buds would make a great facial steamer. Go easy when adding these, as their aroma is powerful. If you haven’t seen them, facial steaming products are dried ingredients that a customer sprinkles into hot, steamy water in a bowl. Then they place their face directly over the bowl and allow their skin and face to absorb the fragrant steam. Oftentimes it is recommended to put a towel draped over the back of the head to keep the steam from escaping. Adding ingredients such as Organic Arnica, Organic Calendula, Organic Lavender Buds, Organic Comfrey, and Organic Aloe would make a powerful herbal blend. Other ingredients that are great to add are fresh lemons, some salt such as our Fine Dead Sea Salt, Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate), Citric Acid, then essential oils with facial care properties such as Frankincense Carterii, Helichrysum, Egyptian Geranium, Organic Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Clary Sage, Holy Basil, Manuka….you get the idea. If you’re creating a dry facial steam product, you will add your liquid products (essential oils, carrier oils) to the salts, then add the pre-scented salts to your other dry ingredients. Don’t try to scent the dried herbs; those smell lovely just on their own.
You can also use this organic lavender to create your own tinctures. Tinctures can be made using a variety of bases, such as organic witch hazel, glycerin or an organic carrier oil. We have a pre-made Arnica Extract for you made with our Organic USA grown Sunflower Oil.
We also offer Organic Lavender Oil Extract, ready to use extracted lavender oil.
Organic Lavender Buds are sold in ½-pound biodegradable bags, 1-pound biodegradable bags, 5-pound biodegradable bags, 25-pound, and 50-pound sizes. Any orders larger than 500-pounds please email us for pricing.
