About our Grosso Lavender Buds
Clean Grosso Lavender Buds from Mesa Lavender Farms is great for Potpourri, Sachets, Soaps, Candles, and other Crafts. Our buds can also be used instead of Confetti at Weddings and other special occasions.
Mesa Lavender Farms Grosso buds are cleaned using an 1800 era seed cleaner. We remove the dust and most of the bracts and bracteoles, stems, leaves and other debris associated with lavender buds.
Grosso is one of the most fragrant of Lavenders. You can use the buds to fill sachets to hang in your closets or drawers. When you give the sachet a squeeze you will release more of the lavender fragrance. Carry the lavender-filled sachets with you in your luggage, purse, attache bag, etc when you travel. Squeeze and smell the sachet when you need to relax.
Keep a lavender-filled sachet under your pillow to help you sleep. Or if you prefer, you can use a couple of drops of our Grosso Lavender Essential Oil on your pillow to help you sleep more comfortably.
Grosso lavender buds from Mesa Lavender Farms are used for potpourri, when making sachets, shoulder wraps, neck rolls, added to soaps and candles, used with other crafts, and in place of confetti at weddings. We clean our Grosso buds to remove stems, dust and plant debris.
Are Grosso Lavender Buds edible?
Grosso buds are not edible and you should not use them in baking cookies, pastries, and other food items. We carry buds of Folgate which you can use for all sorts of culinary activities. You can also shop for spices already mixed with Folgate buds if you prefer.
Are these really ‘buds’?
A bud is a plant structure that develops into a leaf, flower, or shoot. We use the term ‘bud’ to describe these vase-shaped flower parts but in botanical terms, these are a part of the flower. The proper term to use would be calyces (the calyx is the singular form). Saying bud is much easier than trying to explain this.
