Welcome to Charleston Lavender Farm website. The farm is a sole proprietor company, that means I am a one woman show. My mission is to provide quality fresh and dried lavender and lavender products at reasonable prices. See the About Tab for more information.
Lavender is a magical plant, with many properties and uses from its relaxing fragrance to culinary uses and pain relief. Some uses of lavender include:
Culinary–pick flower stems just as flowers open, dried lavender is about 3 times as strong as fresh; use buds for both sweet and savory dishes, leaves and stems are great for grilling or flavoring vinegar and oil. Lavender is related to rosemary and can be substituted in most recipes.
Household–dried buds in sachets are used to scent drawers and repel moths, fleas, and other insects; popular for use in mixed potpourris, great as a carpet deodorizer or cleaner.
Cosmetic–lavender water is used for delicate and sensitive skin to speed cell regeneration, as an antiseptic against acne, added to soaps, or in massage oil for muscle aches.
Medicinal–a tea infusion is used for headaches and calming, especially in baths; oil is used for headaches (one drop on the temple), and as a painkiller for insect bites, burns and rashes.
Aromatherapy–essential oil is used for stress reduction, calming, and anti-depression therapy
Lavender season in Northern California is June to August- so that is when I have fresh lavender bouquets available. Dried lavender and lavender products are available year round. I have a wide range of quality products available and can be mail ordered anywhere. For more details about Charleston Lavender Farm products link to Products.
