Love for Lavender

We are well into spring now and lavender is one of our garden’s beauties to unfold its splendour. The colour, the scent, the bees busily buzzing around, it is hard not to love lavender. There aren’t many herbs around which can claim being as well known and widely used throughout centuries and cultures. With its both relaxing and stimulating energy, lavender seduces one at the first sight, enchanting both the body and the spirit.

Used in and on the body, in cooking and around the house (ah, those aromatic linens!) or just for the pure pleasure of the eyes, lavender has countless benefits and qualities. It is soothing, calming, antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-microbial, healing and rejuvenating. More on its properties here.

Lavender is my go-to for wound nursing, headaches, respiratory issues as well as a sleeping aid, to perfume my daughter’s bathwater, for a lovely evening tea or when I feel under pressure or a bit down. And if you haven’t tried a fresh lavender champagne, it should be on your must-do list this summer. 😉


Lavender is amazing in itself, but it also blends beautifully with bergamot, sage, peppermint, chamomile, geranium, rosemary, eucalyptus, palmarosa, juniper. No wonder it’s so widely used in mists and nourishing balms for skin. And, of course, you can find most of these combinations in our facial oils.

Stay fresh and enjoy your spring! 🐝 😇

PS. Pictured above it’s a flamboyant Victorian bred lavender called The Princess, which is the first lavender (or shall I say pink?) bush to bloom on our property. 😍

Hi Stephania and Co. Just wanted to let you know that I am really enjoying using your products. I have tried most of them now and my favourites are the facial oils, skin restore balm and face mist. Since I have been using them my skin feels great. I also love the way the products smell and the fact that it is all natural is very important to me. I have given some of your products as gifts and the friends and family that have received them have loved them too. I am looking forward to trying the new little perfume as regular perfume irritates my skin. Keep up the good work. I am definitely a fan!

Minty days

These days I get a little nostalgic. Just because I love summer’s brightness, along with its long, warm days. But when I see the first mint tops becoming white and fluffy like cat’s tail, I know the summer is well past its peak. The cooling, yet sweet strong aroma is a powerful consolation though. It soothes my senses and my spirit alike. It’s such a profoundly intoxicating and invigorating scent. Pure delight.

Second time when I get this same vibrant kick is when I strip the dried leaves off the stems. My drying room becomes the most exciting herbal apothecary on earth.
To get and preserve all this goodness I pick the mint gradually as it goes into bloom, as that is when the plant reaches its maximum potency. I let dry in the shade until it becomes crumbly and then get it into jars with pure EVOO to slow sun-infuse for about 10-12 weeks.
That is when it is ready to go into the baby balm to provide much needed comfort, as well as into facial oils (such as the ones for combination and oily/acne prone skin) to balance the natural production of sebum.
