Rivendell Aromatics

Rivendell Aromatics -Our Lavender plants grow in rich soil on a west facing hillside, bathed in sunshine while cooled by the soft ocean breezes. This is an ideal growing system for healthy vigorous Lavender plants with very fragrant flowers. We harvest the Lavender flowers at the peak of aromatic perfection to sell in a number of different products, everything from wreaths and bundles, to sachets, comfort pillows, vegetale soaps, beeswax candles and True Essential Oil products.

Rivendell Aromatics resides among 3000 Hass Avocado Trees in the lovely Casitas Pass Valley, near Santa Barbara, California. We grow 38 varieties of Lavender, Helichrysum italicum (Immortelle), Lemon verbena and various other herbs for aromatic products. Most of the commercial planting is Lavandula intermedia 'Grosso', many varieties of Lavandula angustifolia and the Helichrysum. On the farm we also grow several unusual varieties of avocados, cherimoya, stone fruit, apples, pears, citrus, persimmons, figs, heirloom tomatoes and olives.
