Our craft-grade dried lavender bundles are perfect for those projects when you need the aroma and bulk of dried lavender, but not the pristine color, long stems, and impressive flowers as found in our premium bundles. The lavender and stems are perfect for pillows, sachets, smudge sticks, and other aromatherapy needs!
Point One Acres is a small farm located in serene Anderson Valley, famous for incredible Pinot Noir, majestic redwoods, and quaint charm. Our lavender is grown in the warm California sunshine, and cooled by the Pacific Ocean's breezes caressing our ridgetop. The lavender we grow is Lavandula x intermedia ‘Grosso’ (also known as Lavandin), a French variety, renowned for its hardiness, deep aroma, stunning large and deep blue-violet flower heads, and quality of essential oil. It is the most common variety grown for the perfume and cosmetics industries due to its wonderful oil. Our large plants, when in bloom, can measure more than 5 feet across! Grosso is known for having a unique camphor-like backnote, overlaid with the lovely sweet floral characteristics you expect from lavender.
Our lavender products are created by hand, with love and attention to detail! We do not use any chemicals or pesticides to treat our plants. The bees are our friends and we want them here on our property! In fact, we dedicate several plants as "just" for the bees, and do not harvest from those plants. The water source for our drip irrigation comes from our well, and is filtered prior to meeting the lavender plants, making our lavender ideal for culinary pursuits!
Each morning, we visit the lavender field and walk among the happy bees at work, and choose the buds, flowers, or stems for the day's project.
Our craft grade dried lavender bundles are harvested by hand, when the flowers have opened and matured (maximum essential oil production!), and dried for about 1 week. Each bundle will contain some stems of smaller, shorter stems intermingled with the long stems. The average craft grade bundle measures 6-12" long, and is 6" in circumference.
The craft grade bundles are gathered with a rubber band, rolled in tissue, and packed for transit. Dried lavender bundles are fragile, and there will be shedding during transit. The chaff will still smell wonderful in your project!
Etsy calculates shipping automatically based on size and weight - I have no control over this. For those ordering multiple bundles in one order, there may be a shipping refund after your purchase, depending on distance from California, and number of bundles ordered.
***Please note: we recycle shipping boxes and packing materials wherever possible. This means you may receive our package marked with another retailer's name. Thank you for helping us reduce our footprint! ***
