    I just completed a certification on complementary and integrative medicine and Lavender was one of the plants that had a great deal of health benefits. I wish I win, so I can try it on my Patients and start recommending it in the future. Most of the time these products are different based on the soil where they grow. Since i know the source, then it will be easy to study and recommend.

    There is no sweeter smell than lavender. And it tastes wonderful. I use the blossoms in cookies, scones, pound cake and other baked goods. One of the best treats on a hot summer afternoon is a big freezer of vanilla ice cream with lavender blossoms added.

    I love it when it is fresh right off the plant but also dried for winter baking or for making wands or sachets. I’m glad to know about this farm. I want to visit them soon.

    Lavender is one of my favorite scents. I use essential oils all over my house and, if in doubt, I always come back to lavender. As a public school teacher, mom of three boys, and wife of a high school basketball coach, relaxation is something I practice every day. Lavender oils help me do this daily. I am interested in expanding my lavender horizons. This would be a great opportunity for me to expand into soaps and laundry detergents.
