Throw Back Summer And Lavender DAZE Festival

Share Button

We’re still experiencing chilly winter weather, so today I’m enjoying a little daydream!!


Throw back Summertime!!

 

Awe..I’m surrounded by warm sunshine, and a lovely fragrant lavender aroma as I stroll through the lavender fields!! I’m enchanted by lovely garden music by Moe Dixon, and other great bands. And the heavenly calming lavender aroma brings sweet peace in my soul!! 🙂 Just five months away, and I can hardly wait!!  Won’t you sit back, and enjoy this daydream with me? 🙂

These beautiful photos are from our 9th annual Oregon Lavender DAZE! This is always a favorite summertime family event in our community! Many happy people show up to enjoy the festivities strolling through lavender fields, cutting fragrant lavender bouquets, dancing to the music, or just chillin under the big tents!! Oh, I’m smiling again!!

Lovely views of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams, and our gorgeous Hood River Valley make our setting surreal!!

We are anticipating another great year for our 12th  Oregon Lavender DAZE Festival this July 2nd & 3rd.  We have a great line-up of arts & craft vendors, food vendors, and talented bands. And as always, our Lavender DAZE T-shirts will be available! This awesome graphic art is done by our friend Steve Johannsen!! My gals and I have always tie-dyed our own Tees! They look “super cool”,  like the one my son, Nathan is wearing!  We hope you will plan to join us, and de-stress in the  heavenly calm that fills our lavender farm!!  🙂

What a sweet throw back daydream, thanks for sharing it with me!

Lavender All Purpose Cleaner Will Help Detox Your Home!

Share Button

Toxins are everywhere around us in the air, water, food and even our homes!! Let’s Detox our home with the pure plant power of Lavender!!

Our All Purpose Cleaner begins with our “hydrosol” (floral water) that is created when our steam-distillation is performed for lavender essential oil on the farm. It is a very powerful natural cleaner in itself, and even cuts grease. The very definition of the name ‘lavender’ is ‘to clean’. It is 100% botanical, biodegradable, “soil to bottle”, safe to the environment including plants, animals, land and water, and also to the user.

Because lavender is a natural antibacterial with antifungal properties, and has a long list of healing qualities, even for burns, it has been the answer for my cleaning product for over 12 years, because of my occupational dermatitis from many years as a Cosmetologist and Esthetician. I have continual infections on my hands anytime I encounter chemicals. And so, after years of practical usage and research with additional essential oils in our hydrosol, I have fine-tuned an amazingly powerful All Purpose Cleaner recipe that is 100% botanical, free of colorings or dyes, no phosphates, ammonia, butyl ethers or chlorine, and is very pleasant in aroma without synthetic fragrances. It is very effective as a spot remover, cuts grease, works well for dirt & buildup on floors, walls, counter-tops, sinks, tubs, toilets, kitchen, diaper pails, doorknobs, pet area, and even as a pre-soak additive in the laundry. The power of Nature’s own chemicals can provide solutions for Detoxing and cleaning without the harmful side-effects of contact to, or the unhealthy fumes of the chemicals used in commercial cleaning products. I have a choice for what I bring into my home & personal health gain, environmental protection, and the satisfaction of knowing that now my home, from floor to ceiling, is free of toxins. Our All Purpose Cleaner has the power needed to Detox your home with pure plant botanicals, and a fresh clean lavender aroma, sweet like a field of lavender 🙂

Warm It Up And Wrap It Around

Share Button

Our Lavender Neck Wrap is one of the first heat-able Wraps that I developed. It has become a very popular healing Wrap when heated, for soothing tired sore muscles, stress and tension of the neck, shoulders, and even the tummy. It can also be cooled in the freezer and used as a cold compression wrap, that feels wonderful placed around the top of the knee to relieve pain or inflammation. The Wrap will hold cold temperature or heat (flipping sides) long enough for a therapeutic application. It is bringing abundant relief to many happy customers! 🙂

This year I discovered another wonderful use for the Wrap! I had a sweet 90 year old neighbor that was experiencing a lot of inflammation and joint pain from Arthritis in her left hand , so I gave her one of our Neck Wraps to help relieve her uncomfortable condition. I showed her how to heat it up and place it on her hand, warming it, which in turn relieved her discomfort and pain. 🙂 She Loves her new soothing wrap!!

I love to hear customers tell me about the healing relief of our Lavender Neck Wrap. Relief of discomforting stress from tired aching muscles, and soothing comfort for cold hands, and  knees experiencing joint pain. We give extra care and attention to every detail from sewing, and filling each Neck Wrap. It is filled with our Organic Lavender buds, giving natural therapy from the relaxing aroma of Lavender, Flax Seed and Rice. The Wrap can be heated in the microwave for 30 seconds intervals, offering the benefit of aroma and heat.  It’s also small enough to take with you when you travel.

The next time you are experiencing aching muscles, pain, tension in the neck, and shoulders, or are just feeling a bit under the weather with cold aching hands, get your Neck Wrap, “warm it up and wrap it around” yourself for soothing, healing aromatherapy! Sweet relief 🙂

My Mother & I enjoyed this beautiful Christmas Advent Concert. The wonderful old pipe organ combined with the piano was extremely beautiful, Angelic! I can’t think of a more perfect moment to share with my dear Mother, especially since she loves playing the organ also!
