Lavender Reserve 5ml
Veriditas Organic Lavender "Reserve"
Throughout the years, Veriditas founder, Melissa Farris, has cultivated close relationships with all of her distillers. This Lavender Reserve comes from Eric and Sylvie Bonnet, who live in the remote area of Simiane, so high up in the French Alps that there is still snow on the ground in May! The Bonnets are highly respected and lovingly care for their land with biodynamic growing methods and heirloom seed that can be traced back thousands of years. This Lavender Angustilfolia is called a ÏReserve? because it is like a winemakers special reserve, with only a small amount made available each year. It is single-sourced and has a honey sweet scent. Used exactly the same as Veriditas Lavender Angustifolia, the True French.
