Lavender – Ordering Info

September 15th, 2016 by Jacki

ROYAL-VELVET-3

With Fall rapidly closing in, here’s a reminder for those who saw our previous post and new info for those of you who didn’t. Any orders for plants, both wholesale and retail, will not ship until April of 2017.

For our wholesale customers, plan now and get your orders in before the end of the year to secure your plants for spring. Remember that we have a 4 tray minimum order. (Tip – Order even numbers of trays – they fit more securely in our shipping boxes) To place your order go to our wholesale page, download and complete the order form and submit to us via email (info@victorslavender.com) or fax (360 683-7830).

A note on shipping – it’s expensive. Many of you are unpleasantly surprised at the cost and we don’t blame you. We are continually looking for more economical ways to ship our plants to arrive at your location safely and in good health. Unfortunately the options are few. A box with 4 trays will weigh between 48 and 52 pounds and cost to ship is between $50 and $100+ depending on your location. Time in transit is critical and we have found that we have had the most success with Priority Mail for those orders going to the Midwest and East Coast. Rumor has it that UPS will be raising rates after Christmas this year.

As always, if you have questions the best way to contact us is by sending us an email.  The ‘Man with the Answers’ is traveling far and wide this fall with consulting but we will respond as quickly as possible.

On another note – be sure to check out our products under the Retail Store Tab.       CHRISTMAS BOX CONTENTS
Many of the products we make here on the farm are available to our wholesale customers for resale in gift shops. Contact us at products@victorslavender.com for more information.

Lavender Harvest

‘Tis the Season

June 11th, 2015 by Jacki

Where the Magic Begins!

Where the Magic Begins!

The ‘Lavender Season’ that is and our store is open and ready to provide a variety of great lavender products for you and your friends.

We opened Memorial Day weekend and will be open through Labor Day. We are open Tuesday – Sunday from 10 – 5. Come see us and say ‘Hi’ to Maribel. She’ll be happy to talk with you about any of our products.

Be sure to mark your calendars and visit the farm during Sequim Lavender Weekend, July 17 – 19. We’ll be here 9 – 6 for the event and we’ll have tons of stuff going on here. You won’t want to miss it.

About our Products

Our products are all made here on our farm with ingredients that are organic and vegetable based, free from pesticides and herbicides and never tested on animals. Our many varieties of lavender oil are distilled here in the Sequim Dungeness Valley or at our Lake Chelan lavender farm.

Our products were developed by Moose Dreams Lavender Company. Beth and Barb have created and produced these wonderful products for more than 15 years and earned a great reputation and loyal following throughout the country. When they decided to retire in 2012 they joined forces with Victor and Maribel, sharing their knowledge and secrets in order to continue to have these great products available.

Almost as far back as recorded history lavender has been used for its healing properties, its power to relax the spirit, ease the pains of mind and body and to purify the air. Lavender is a natural antiseptic, it is used to relieve muscle aches, headaches, burns, insect bites and is well known to induce peaceful slumber. When used in steam inhalation it is an effective remedy for coughs and chest congestion. These are just a few of the amazing properties of the ancient herb – the list goes on and on.

Here at Victor’s Lavender we truly enjoy bringing the magic of natural herbs to our customers. We are also committed to being a ‘green’ company and using as much recycled and recyclable materials in our packaging and advertising as possible. A portion of the profit from the sale of our animal products is donated to animal welfare and rescue organizations.

Stop by and stock up on all your favorite products or try out some new ones from goatmilk lotions and cremes to products for your pets, soft cuddly toys for the kids to beautiful Ashdene products for your home.

Shipping Your Lavender Orders

April 28th, 2014 by Jacki

USPS BOX
In spite of what our Shopping Cart might tell you – shipping services ARE available in your area. For some reason our USPS shipping plug in keeps getting a case of indigestion. We are working on it but if you get a message when placing your order that says ‘Shipping Services are Not Available’ please contact us directly at info@victorslavender.com. So, just because you saw it on the internet’ doesn’t mean it’s true. All of our lavender plants and products are available to ship almost anywhere.
We hope to have this resolved soon and do apologize for the inconvenience.

Dried Lavender

April 18th, 2014 by Jacki

English Lavender      Loose Lavender

Apparently everyone loves it. In bundles for that decorative touch and wonderful aroma, in sachets for freshening drawers and closets , and in cooking for the unique flavor. It’s a big favorite of lavender fans the world over. So much so that we are completely sold out of all of our dried lavender. (That was kind of a sneaky way to break the bad news to you wasn’t it?) No more bundles, no more loose lavender, no Sweet Summer Bud and no more culinary until August or September. But look at it this way…..it’s a great opportunity to try some of the awesome lavender products from our store.

To freshen a room – try our Forest Breeze Room Mist – I love the stuff.   ROOM MIST

If you haven’t already, you might want to try our cremes or lotion – it’s a great way to enjoy a variety of subtle scent combinations while your skin reaps the benefits of Goat Milk. What more could you ask for?
GM CREME 4
We also have some beautiful Goat Milk Soaps. The Lavender Lemongrass is a particularly nice one. PAINTED SOAP 2     GOAT MILK SOAP (2)  BEE SOAP
And there’s always our Lavender Essential Oil that has a multitude of uses.  OIL

So don’t give up hope….there are still lots of ways to enjoy your favorite fragrance. Bath Salts, Lip Balms, Hydrosol, Hand Sanitizer and for the gentlemen, our Northwoods Creme and Northwest Body Mist. And hey – don’t forget your pets. We’ve got lots of great products for them too. So go ahead – give them a try.
We will be sure to let you know when our dried lavender products are available again. We are sorry that we can’t supply them for you now but must say that we are delighted with the popularity of our products. Business seems to be starting off very well this year. Plants sales have been good and the lavender products are doing well. We hope that’s a good sign for our economy and that we have faith that Mother Nature will soon begin to cooperate and give some of you folks a much needed sign of Spring. Hang in there!

US Lavender Growers Assoc.

November 27th, 2012 by victor

During the Ontario Lavender Conference I had an opportunity to meet up with some old friends and meet lots of people in the business of Lavender. It was a great event!

Among the people I spent some time with was Mary Bergstrom of the US Lavender Growers Association. This is a relatively new group founded in 2011 to promote lavender from the field to the finished product. Their goal is to support and promote the United States lavender industry through research, education, networking and marketing. It’s a huge undertaking to get an organization like this started but they have done a great job. Nearly 100 members since they opened the membership drive.

I have taken the liberty of borrowing a bit from their website to give you a quick idea of their goals and the benefits of being a member.

  • participating in and providing research about many areas;
  • education from basics to advanced topics;
  • networking and connecting with growers, crafters, vendors, users, and more;
  • marketing information and opportunities for you and the industry as a whole.

Be sure to check out their ‘Lavender 101’ for tips and information on all things lavender with plenty more information to come as the group continues to grow. For information on how to become a member visit them at http://www.uslavender.org/ With our support we can keep lavender a thriving industry in the United States.

Tim Upson, Victor, Mary Bergstrom
