lavender

Making sachets is a great way to fend off winter doldrums. My studio fills up with the warm scent of dried lavender buds, which immediately makes me think of sun filled summer garden days. I get my lavender buds from Olympic Lavender Farm in Washington State. Their lavender is certified organic and arrives in perfect condition, dry, clean, without fillers or additives.  'Grosso' is my favorite variety, with its pungent natural scent. I also use 'Provence', which is slightly milder but very seductive. Olympic Lavender Farm offers an array of lavender varieties, products, and plants, all of them grown and produced in the most beautiful setting.

I started making sachets to use up various small fabric remnants, and over time they have become one of my most popular items. Now I offer them in several designs, and colors. All of them generously filled with organic lavender buds. The fern sachets posted here will soon be available in the store. In the meantime you can check out the geranium, viburnum, and Queen Ann's lace varieties.
