Lavender is not only beautiful, but it has hundreds of uses. It is a fragrant, aromatic, and relaxing herb.
Purple Pastures Lavender Farm's DRYER SACHETS are an environmentally friendly replacement for dryer sheets, but they have so many more uses. Lavender is a refreshing remedy for a tired mind, relieving anxiety and stress. Use our lavender sachets under your pillow during rest to aid in relaxation. Our lavender sachets are also wonderfully helpful in labor and delivery rooms. Expecting mothers have used our sachets to relieve stress and anxiety during labor.
Lavender florets are a timeless, classic, and romantic party favor for weddings and showers. Your guests will be pleasantly surprised to receive these unique lavender sachets at your event. For weddings, the sachets are perfect for guests to tear open upon the bride and groom’s departure, tossing florets into the air. The lovely scent that fills the air on your special day will have your guests remembering your event fondly for many years to come. Another gift idea is to place a monogram sticker on a lavender sachet and include it in a handwritten thank you note. This is a nice touch, as the scent is calming and it will be remembered.
The lavender can be used as an insect repellent. Open a sachet, combine the florets with sunflower oil or aloe vera and rub onto your skin. Lavender sachets are also quite useful in the garden as a rodent deterrent. Hang a sachet from a stake at the end of each garden row and rest easy knowing your garden will be free of pests.
Tear open a lavender sachet and add the florets to bath water to treat circulation disorders and improve mental well-being.
Purple Pastures Lavender Farm from California grows all their lavender organically with the utmost care to ensure your satisfaction. They whole-heartedly support and practice environmental sustainability by using drip irrigation and recyclable packaging to ensure a better tomorrow.

"Like many brownie aficionados, Sheila G. is particularly fond of the crispy edges. In fact, on many an afternoon she would walk through the bakery gathering the crispy batter off the sides of the sheet pans as the chocolate brownies cooled in their racks. It had that same rich chocolate taste, but with an amazing crunch. That started her wondering: How could she create a whole pan of crunchy edges? Well, lucky for us, she figured it out!

"SolBee Company was created out of a love for the sun, nature, and honey bees.
In college, Hannah’s hobbies kept her busy, but one unique hobby had her hunting all corners of the world for the most exquisite taste, honey collecting. Wherever she would go, honey was always the choice to bring home from a good trip. When she met Brian, the brainstorming began. How can we incorporate the greatest tasting honey from all over the world with the freshest, most organic infusions to create an experience unlike any other? SolBee Company was born.
Having a connection to nature and a zeal for the unknown led Brian at the age of fourteen to seek out an old-time beekeeper in his hometown whose family had been renowned for their bee keeping sleight of hand for over one hundred years. It wasn’t long before Brian had developed a passion for keeping bees and enjoying the products derived from their hives. Brian’s soul had found peace working in the midst of millions of buzzing bees, each dedicating their life to the survival of the hive." ~ SolBee Company

"I’ve always had a passion for the culinary world and enjoy making the most out of each part of a meal – the beverage included. So when I had four children, I wasn’t going to let a lack of wine or cocktails stop me from creating a great pairing.
Working with some of the Pacific Northwest’s leading chefs, I discovered how to use unique flavor notes to create sparkling beverages that are simple and unexpectedly palate pleasing. I’m thrilled to have turned a personal passion into a product that so many other food lovers are now able to enjoy. Cheers!" ~ Sharelle Klaus, Dry Sparkling

Lotte immigrated to the United States in 1964. Throughout the years, in addition to being a wife, raising children and pursuing her career as a psychotherapist and consultant, Lotte made her toffee for family, friends, and neighbors as a special occasion and holiday gift. Using the recipe remembered from childhood, she added chocolate, a variety of nuts and her own unique touches. Her reputation soon spread. People from all over the country began to call, begging to be considered “neighbor” and “friends” so that they might also receive a tin of crunch goodness for the Holiday Season.
Over the years, countless people urged Lotte to go into business. Fortunately, she did just that, and now we can all consider ourselves her friend and neighbor.
