    This Friday, February 6th 2015, the Lavender Farmette will be at the Banana Factory in Bethlehem, PA! We will be set up in studio 243, on the second floor, with some handmade lavender products from our production.

    Do you need a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift? How about creating some olfactory memories for someone special?

    Did you know that lingerie and lavender sachets were made for each other?

    How about the relaxing scent of a pure lavender essential oil, GMO-free, soy wax candle for a romantic evening?

    Or perhaps, spraying your bed linen with the invigorating scent of a lemongrass hydrosol on Valentine’s Day evening? I leave the rest of the story to your imagination…
