Lavendula Intermedia x Dutch white. Stunning and smells great. A Wheel barrow fill to hang and dry. Even the bumble bees love it

LAVENDER

Yesterday I was so excited - I got to tick off a bucket list item: Visit a Lavender Farm! I love Lavender as most of you know; I have plants, I use the dried sprigs in my pillow, even make tea using the flowers and the essential oil is always with me wherever I go. It is so versatile and can be used for burns, anti septic/bacterial, headaches, calming and so much more.

I walked bridge to bridge thanks to Google Maps but it was worth it arriving at Belindas beautiful land, down Beach Road here in Dargaville. So many different varities of Lavender and most of all it smelt devine... It was so great to have a look directly into how Essential Oils - which I use often and regligiously as Natural Medicine, are made and all the hard work planting the seeds and harvesting before even extracting the oils.

Bindys Lavender Farm has all things Lavender from oils, dried herbs, wheat packs and homemade natural products.
Such a lovely family and always an honour to support locals make sure you check her out book in a tour and say hello from me too you will not regret it!

Thanks for having me @bindylavender 💜 -
Photography:

Some self portraiture shots from yesterday, I know it's been a long while since I posted Portraits but Modelling yourself and being the Photographer and editor does takes alot of creative energy so I have to be in that flow to get into mode.

I like to take photos from an inspired vision, like this day and use what I see in my head to pour into an image which sometimes does take a while.

This shoot probably took an hour when I do Photo gigs I take that long for an entire business but working with yourself as the lighting and angles, then editing time on top of that is more time consuming but I love how I can travel solo and get these memorys captured. Dig the outcome!
I like to tell a emotive personal story about the person through portraits, this encorporating purple which is one colour I am always drawn to in nature, it also captures me blissfully flower gazing - soo me

My feed style always involves outdoors and people because I love these things in life so like entertwinin

Which image is your fave 1 or 2?

Love getting flowers ready for weddings. This lot is being dried for a May Wedding. The purples go a bluey/purple colour and the whites become a stunning silver.

First still run of the afternoon. We have 2 baskets to process off of our 18month old plants. Yesterday we distilled 2 baskets of the 3yr old lavender yesterday and in 30min for each run got 1.4L of lovely oil. Will be interesting to see if we get a higher yield.

This little no. Is off to Raglan for a very special lady. Roses and Lavender. I bet the smell when she opens the box will be amazing.
I used recycled boxes and packaging to keep costs down.

Bindy Lavender is very proud to announce our results from the New Zealand Lavender Growers Association 2018 Supreme Oil Awards. We received a silver award for all three of our entries, Pacific Blue 2018, Grosso 2018 & Grosso 2017. We were thrilled with the result which means every oil our fledgling boutique business has produced so far has won a silver award. Just like wine we can prominently display these awards on our products and marketing.
These awards are recognition for the many hundreds of hours that have gone into setting up our lavender farm and the distillation equipment and processes we have developed. With spring here we are now getting stuck into planting. We have about 1,500 to go to finish our 6,000 plant farm which includes 6 varieties for oil and we produce around 20 different varieties for plant sales. Shortly we will be doing a trial planting in our far north property near Houhora harbour.
One final comment - get in while stocks last! Www.Bindy.kiwi.nz

Two trays of cuttings done - 1.5 of Demask roses, other .5 cranberries. Glad that the last 6 trays I have to do are lavender. Not sure if my fingers can handle any more thorns.

Nothing better than a Lavender hot chocolate to warm you up before bed.

1 cup milk (cow or plant)
1 tsp lavender

Pop lavender into milk (either straight or in a tea sieve) bring to boil and then let sit for 2 - 5min

Add hot chocolate (desired taste, I use 1.5 tsp)

Mix

If you have added loose lavender strain it before drinking

Then sit back in front of the fire, telly or where ever you desire and relax.

Made up a winter study blend for a friend loved it so much I'm wearing it in my necklace. The hint of clove is soooo relaxing and warming. And the rosemary and peppermint help keep my mind alert and of course nothing is complete without Lavender

It's a rainy day in Northland with Cyclone Hola sliding down the east coast... the temperature has dropped... so it's time to snuggle in with a comforting hot chocolate. Try infusing lavender from @bindylavendernz in hot milk, strain into a cup & add our Fairtrade Drinking Chocolate.... Delicious. !!!
