Lavender Harvest

Lavender Harvest
One of our favorite brands, Badger, sources only the purest of essential oils from around the globe. Every ingredient they use is grown and processed with the highest degree of respect for protecting the environment, the workers and the natural properties of the plants.  
Their lavender comes from a unique stretch of land in central Bulgaria called The Valley of the Roses.  Why Bulgaria you may ask?  Nestled in the high altitude valleys between the Balkan and Sredna Gora Mountains, the lavender grown in this particular region has a higher oil content and richer aroma than any other region in the world.   This valley has been cultivated for centuries, and provides over 85% of the world's supply of rose oil.
Badger utilizes lavender for its aromatherapeutic power.  Aromatherapy has been used for centuries to transform the mind subconsciously.  Has a scent ever transported you to another place or time?  That's the power of aromatherapy.  Lavender has the ability to calm and ease a troubled mind.  When combined with topical application (like in Badger's Night-Night Balm!) the double effect of absorbing and smelling the oil is transformative.  It can soothe a headache, help promote healthful natural sleep, and calm even the most rambunctious of toddlers!   You'll also find this relaxing organic essential oil in  Badger Sleep Balm as well.

"We tend to be organic fanatics.  That's because we believe that sustainable organic agriculture is our hope for the future. Imagine food, clothing, and shelter produced in harmony with nature, without the use of toxic chemicals polluting earth, air and water today. It's easy for me to imagine, because it makes sense."
- Badger Bill Whyte, Founder, CEO & Head Badger
