Country of Origin: France
Also known as Lavandula Officinalis, lavender flowers/buds come from the plant family Lamiaceae (which also include mints) and have a variety of uses. They are very aromatic, and they maintain full aroma when in dry form. In terms of texture, they are dry but not crunchy. The flower buds are extremely light, so a small quantity will go a long way. The small buds originate from the flowers that bloom from late spring to early autumn and have a rich purple color.
In terms of aromatherapy, the lavender scent is commonly used for relaxation and peace of mind. The buds are a great substitution to those who don’t like working directly with the oils.
The dried botanicals are great for making sachets that can be placed around the house, in drawers or commonly ignored household areas (think lavender moth balls). The sachets are great to hang near the door, window or even throughout your car to keep insects at bay.
You can also add them to a bowl as a potpourri, either by themselves or with other dried botanicals (Note they are most aromatic when placed in sunny/warm locations). They are great for making floral bath water, eye pillows (or simply adding to your regular pillow case for a fabulous nights sleep), or mixing into your soap making to add a gentle exfoliate to your final product.
You can even put them on the carpet before vacuuming to add some fragrance to your carpet when cleaning. The possibilities are endless!
Finally, these lavender buds make great confetti for that upcoming wedding as they are extremely fragrant and earth friendly.
Whatever your use, dried botanicals are fantastic for people looking for an all-natural way to scent their homemade goodies. They also add a wonderful coloring (pictured above is the Super) and texture to those soaps and bath and body products.

I bought the surchoix because I read that these dried buds retained a more purple color. They smell great and will do but I really wanted the color to be more prominent. May order some other and use these for throwing at a bride and groom instead of birdseed. Hope it’s not windy! Lol

While the Super Lavender Buds were very fragrant, they were not as vibrant in color as pictured on the website. Since I am reselling the lavender buds purely for their appearance and fragrance, color is just as important as the fragrance. These will be fine, and I certainly wouldn't entertain the notion of using any less quality lavender buds.

This lavender smells wonderful, I got the order promptly, and I think I got a tad more than I paid for. I'm happily filling sachets and enjoying the aroma.

I’m not a lavender person but these buds smell amazing. I’m making DIY cleaner mixed with Lavender & Sage the color is so Beautiful!

The 4 oz. package seems to go a long way, and is fragrant. I did not find even 30% purple buds, but they were all gray. This is a bit disappointing for potpourri or sachets, but it still works.

I was thrilled to see the lavender was available again! I use it in sachets, soaps, and whatever else feels right at the time. I sprinkle in cards I'm mailing to surprise the receiver. The pricing is excellent.

I have been a Bulk Apothecary customer for years, but this was the first time I tried any dried flowers. First, I have to remark that the 4 oz bag is INSANELY larger than I expected. But what blew me away the most was the BEAUTIFUL fragrance from these flowers. I hadn't even torn the top off the bag (above the ziplock seal), and the heavenly fragrance was already wafting from the bag. I am in LOOOOOOVE! I honestly don't think I'll even need to add essential oils to these milk maths. I am so so so so so happy I purchased these!
