Our customers want clean, natural and healthy products. They don’t want synthetic ingredients and they totally want to avoid parabens, sulfates and other “bad chemicals” that can trigger allergic reactions. For every 10 customers who stop by our market stand, I’d estimate at least 2 will tell me they are highly sensitive to chemicals found in many skin care products. They love learning about how our products are formulated with organic, natural or naturally derived ingredients. Customers are even happier when they sample our lavender cream, mist and body oil and feel how light and absorbent they are.
Being able to provide clean and natural products a huge part of why we don’t test our products on animals, and we never will.
Our lavender mist spray is not only cruelty free, it’s safe to spray on dog collars, dog harnesses, and dog beds--or anywhere else your dog likes to hang out. Dogs should never ingest lavender and you shouldn’t spray the mist directly on your dog. Learn more about the calming benefits and safe use of lavender in our April 2021 blog post Can Lavender Help My Dog Chill Out?
Lavender is also calming for horses. Citing a study by researchers at the University of Arizona, a 2018 article in American Farrier Journal reports that “Horses face a variety of stressors daily: trailering, bathing, clipping, vet visits, hoof trims, bridling and saddling, to name a few. Using lavender as aromatherapy can be a more natural way to calm them down, rather than using tranquilizers or medicine.”
We’re proud to offer lavender mists and essential oil that are safe and healthy around people and the animals they love.
