Lavender flowers, or Lavandula angustifolia, are a beautiful herb that hold a multitude of culinary, cosmetic and medicinal uses.

The aromatic properties of Lavender Flowers make it quite useful in as an extra in lotions and creams. They are used extensively in perfumes, soaps and sachets. Lavender water, made from the essential oil, is recommended in therapeutic baths for its relaxant properties. A small amount of Lavender Flowers, Lavandula angustifolia, added to ordinary oils makes a useful application.

What's the difference between the Extra, Select, and Super grades?

All grades of our French lavender possess a very fragrant aroma and distinct flavors that become more subtle when used in an infusion, such as a tea. They’re all perfectly suitable for culinary use, crafts, potpourri, and for therapeutic use such as in body care products like soap, oils, lotions, and shampoos. There are slight variations of color and aroma between each grade.

Extra grade lavender has a slightly bitter, floral, grassy flavor enhanced by the aroma. The flowers have a little more green or blue-grey color compared to Select and Super, and also contains slightly more stems and leaves. This makes it a cost-effective alternative in culinary preparations and crafts that do not rely on visual presentation. Perfect for use in sachets, tinted containers, and especially in our Starwest Organic Lavender Dryer Bags!

Select grade has a more pronounced floral flavor with hints of grass, but less bitter. It possesses a subtly fresh, sweeter flavor that works well as a culinary ingredient and in loose teas and tea bags. It has a medium deepness of lavender color, less stems and leaves. The deeper color also means Select lavender will look nice in clear and open containers of potpourri and other herbal blends.

Super grade lavender has a citrus-like taste, hints of sweetness and rosemary, and a stronger floral flavor. It is brighter and subtly peppery when raw. The color is rich and vibrant and contains the least amount of stems and leaves. With the abundance of flowers and buds, Super grade lavender is perfect for loose teas (especially if you intend to make a tea with only lavender, not as a blend) and in any application that calls for open or clear containers, such as potpourri, where the colors are sure to be prominent.

Great product

I bought this Lavender to make a recipe that I found for Lavender lemonade. It's a mix of fresh lemonade and steeped lavender flowers, and these made it perfect. The fragrance and flavor are incredible.

Great Lavendar

I used this to make some potpourri to keep the moths out of my wool yarn. It is very fresh and has a lot of fragrance. Perfect for my potpourri. I tried putting some in my tea, but it was way too strong.

5 Stars- Wonderful Aroma

Love this quality of Lavender. We have been using Starwest for years as we manufacture Heavenly Hollow Herbal Packs. The smell and color are spot on. This lavender is delivered fresh in a sealed bag, deep in color and the smell is out of this world.

Lovely, Lovely Lavender

If you are going to use lavender in food, this is just what you want. If you happen to own the cookbook "The Modern Vegetarian" by Maria Elia, go to page 138 for the Orange, Lavender and Almond Syrup Cake recipe. SO good and of course, even better with quality, organic lavender. Here is the place get it!

Loved it!

I was very pleased with the freshness of the lavender. It was not only fragrant and lovely but added a sweet flavor to my tea. I rate this product very high. The scent was delicious and a pinch of it in a cup of tea was exquisite. ThAnk you.

Have used this product for years, but never ordered it online until recently. I'm pleased it arrived very promptly. I love and enjoy this product for its benefits of a calming and relaxing night of sleep. It promotes a natural deep sleep, which is far superior than a sleeping pill.

Just as promised

The order came within 2 days! We wanted these for our flower girl to toss down the aisle. The smell was awesome, and I have plenty left for my potpourri jar at home. Lots of volume!

Questions & Answers for Lavender

Is the organic super grade lavender appropriate for culinary use? And assuming from pic super grade is free of stems & leaves?
Question by: Diana on March 23, 2014
Yes, all three grades are appropriate for culinary use actually. Super has the best color, so if you're putting it in something that will be noticeable in (such as a blend of whole spices, a loose tea, etc.) it's a great choice. However, extra and select will work for normal culinary use. The picture is accurate in that the super grade has little to no stem or leaves, while there is a bit in the extra and select grades (more so in the extra; we try to sift that out but it's not possible to remove 100% by machine sifting).
Answer by: Starwest Staff on March 23, 2014
Are these flowers irradiated?
Question by: Julieta on May 05, 2014
No - we do not irradiate any of our products.
Answer by: Starwest Staff on May 05, 2014
Does one grade have a stronger scent than another or are all grades similar in strength of scent?
Question by: Maggie on April 30, 2014
The scent is similar across the grades. Unless you need a more vibrant color for your use, you would be best served by going with the extra grade.
Answer by: Starwest Staff on April 30, 2014
I will be using the lavender to make sachets with organza bags. Which item to do you recommend?
Question by: Jenny on April 25, 2014
We use the extra grade in our sachets. It has a great aroma, and what it lacks compared to select or super grades - mostly from a visual standpoint, as those have superior color - won't really be noticeable through a sachet.
