About Lavender Flowers Organic

Although lavender is best known as an intense floral fragrance or addition to pot pourri, this versatile plant has a range of surprising culinary uses that can be implemented in both sweet and savory dishes. Lavender flowers have a clean, distinctive aroma and matching floral, ever-so-slightly-minty flavor.

Besides using in cooking, lavender flowers make an amazing herbal tea. Lavender soothes stomach pain and calms the nervous system, and gives a feeling of relaxation. It is ideal for insomnia, stress and anxiety, helps migraines, and headaches.

It is also used instead of mothballs against moth.

Storage and shelf life

Store organic lavender leaves in a dry and sealable food storage container – we recommend glass. Keep the container in a cool, dry and dark area out of the sun and heat. Sunlight and heat can reduce the nutritional and flavoring quality of the herb. Keep the container away from liquids that may leak into it.

Organic lavender leaves, when properly stored, have a shelf life of up to 1 year.

Shipping and delivery

The product is available for delivery and pick up from our store in de Pijp.

The product is delivered in recycled paper bags.

How to use

Lavender’s sweet, fragrant flavor complements a range of foods, both sweet and savory. Ingredients lavender goes well with include strawberries, blueberries, pears, lemon, orange, honey, sage, rosemary, oregano, thyme, black pepper and chocolate.

Since the lavender flavor intensifies when the herb is dried, the dried buds should be used sparingly.
Tasty & fresh
We maintain a close relationship with our producers from Crete and trust their ethos and ways of treating the land. Besides that, though, we obtain certificates of chemical analysis to ensure the quality of the herbs and always try each batch for freshness and taste as soon as they arrive to our store to ensure that meets our standards.

Local
Our lavender grows under the Greek sun in an ideal climate for its development, making it a superb product with taste and aroma much better than that available in the Netherlands.

Organic

Producer's impact
Our producers are all small batch herb growers/ collectors in the region of Heraklion in Crete. They have been taking care of the land and the trees for generations and have a love and passion for herbs. They use organic farming techniques, which are much more sustainable than conventional.
