A beautiful dried lavender bunch that has been grown, hand-harvested, and dried right here on our farm. It will include at least 150 stems and will be shipped in a paper sleeve. The length and shape of each bunch will be unique as we have many hands that help to harvest our lavender. These bunches are sold in their natural state, just as they’ve been dried and removed from the chains hanging in our barn.
For best results, we recommend that you keep bunches on display in places that do not receive direct sunlight or lots of moisture. The scent is contained inside the buds (flowers have fallen off during the drying process), and the only way to release more fragrance is to crush or squeeze the buds. So if you’re feeling like your lavender bunch is not releasing the scent any longer (or is getting dusty), you might wish to gently rub the buds off the stems and continue it’s life in the form of potpourri or making your own eye pillow.
You can choose from two varieties, which we’ve selected as the best ones for long-lasting dried bunches.
Grosso Dried Lavender Bunch – The most common variety of lavender that is always sure to please. It is a member of the Intermedia lavender family and is known for its strong fragrance. This is the variety most commonly used in sachets and eye pillows. It has nice long stems and soft, muted purple colored buds. Grosso blooms later in the season than our English varieties and is always the last to be harvested.
Royal Velvet Dried Lavender Bunch – This lavender bunch is part of the Lavendula Angustifolia family, also known as English or true lavender. It has a much lighter, softer scent than what you might be familiar with. Royal Velvet typically has shorter stems and has dark purple, velvety looking buds. It blooms in the early part of the summer and is one of the first to be harvested.
