We are creators and experimenters so over the years in addition to our "all lavender" essential oil products we have paired lavender with other sympathetic essential oils to create a variety of pleasant blends. Seven of these blends have become standard favorites for which we have chosen, in most cases, French-sounding names or what we refer to humorously as "Frenglish. " (As you'll see in our family story there is a "French Connection" and it's also nice to put all those hours spent on high school French for use for something!) These blends appear in linen sprays, lotion, and candles. They are as follows:
L'air de Lavender (All Lavender) Simple favorite.
Lavender Sunshine (Lavender, Lemongrass & Sweet Orange) Created in 2010. Loved by all!
*Lavande Extotique (Lavender &Plumeria) We discovered heavenly plumeria on a trip to Hawaii!
Lavande et Menthe (Lavender & Spearmint) Calms you down and wakes you up!
*Madame Lavender (Lavender & Rose) So classic.
Mademoiselle Lavender (Lavender & Ylang Ylang) So sweet!
Monsieur Lavender (Lavender & Patchouli) a masculine delineation , yes, but we made it for our sister-in-law, so obviously ladies like patchouli too!
Each year we add one or two new blends:
*Purple Tranquility (Lavender, Vanilla &Geranium) In linen spray only. Created by our 2011 intern, Kimberley Berg.
Love and Happiness (Lavender, Lemongrass & Ylang Ylang) Life is sweet. Feminine. Created in 2012
*New for 2014: Lavender Belle (Lavender, Lily of the Valley, & Gardenia) This is a fragrance homage to our lavender matriarch, Edith Williamson, whose favorite perfume is White Shoulders and who carried lily of the valley in her bridal bouquet.
*We believe in the healthful, natural and healing properties of essential oils and when we can use them exclusively. But in a few cases, the flowers we love do not produce essential oils so we do use fragrance for those. Currently the only fragrances we use are plumeria, (found in our Lavande Exotique), rose (found in our Madame) vanilla (found in Purple Tranquility), and gardenia and lily of the valley (found in our new blend for 2014: Lavender Belle)
