Shop Local, Shop Handmade - Olympic Lavender

As I wind down this month long series on ways to shop local and handmade, here are some products to help you wind down from the stresses of life.

Olympic Lavender™ , is one of the founding farms of the original Sequim lavender farm movement that started it all back in 1995.  Marco and Christa Hermosillo took over this certified organic heritage lavender farm on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula last year and have done amazing thigns with it.Nestled in the fertile soils of the Sequim-Dungeness valley, their farm grows many premium varieties of lavender flowers, distills lavender essential oils,  and creates artisan, hand-made lavender products and gifts for your pleasure.

They partner with a number of community organizations and events throughout the year, highlighted by the Annual Sequim Lavender Farm Farm Tour & Fair™ , part of the Sequim Lavender Weekend, every third weekend of July.

They use certified organic lavender flowers/buds and certified organic lavender essential oils in the products they create. They also use natural and vegan ingredients when ever possible. You will find a selection of bath and body products as well as lavender for your kitchen available on their website.

You can shop from their website or visit them on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Instagram as well.
If you want a nice road trip go visit the farm in person. They are just a couple hours west of Seattle and just a ferry ride away from Victoria, British Columbia.
