"Buena Vista" Lavender Essential Oil

$ 24.00

Ring Botanicals “Buena Vista” Lavender 100% Pure Essential Oil (Lavandula augustifolia) 5ml

An Oregon specialty, “Buena Vista” was bred to thrive in our rainy NW climate. This is truly a unique lavender. Distilled in small batches at low temperatures. This oil has distinctly fruity notes as well as a delicate floral character lacking in most lavender oils. A rare and gorgeous offering from the green foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Like fine wine, the fragrance may undergo subtle shifts in character from season to season and harvest to harvest.

Possible Uses

Traditionally applied for eczema, skin-care, blemishes, cuts, scrapes, bruises, insomnia, anxiety, sore muscle, nerve pain, infections, bug bites, insect stings, and burns. *

Blending Uses – “Buena Vista” Lavender is distilled for 1.5 hours as opposed to the industry standard of 3-4 hours. This quick, low-temperature distillation produces an oil rich in delicate, fruity esthers, lacking the soapy, harsh notes often found in other lavender oils. Rare notes of peach, watermelon, daphne, and jasmine make this oil and ideal choice for aromatherapeutic applications and perfume blends.

Our Essential Oils

All of our artisan essential oils are steam distilled from plants that are grown and harvested from the wild areas of Oregon. At Ring Family Farm we do not spray our crops with pesticides, and great care is taken with every step of the process. From the baby plants we start from seed, to the plowing of the fields and planting, to the labor of hand weeding, and through to the careful harvest and distillation we are invested with love and care every step of the way. All of our oils are packaged in violet glass to extend shelf-life. We periodically may rely on trusted local artisan distillers for back-up supplies of Douglas Fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata), "ARP" Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis). "Buena Viata" Lavender, and "Grosso" Lavandin essential oils. Our lavender oils are sold in 100% pure form, while our other lower-yield oils are offered at 20% in fractionated coconut oil (f.c. oil blends with all other carriers and will also dissolve in alcohol for use in perfumes.)

The Farm

Ring Family Farm is an island safe-haven for native plants and animals displaced by surrounding clear cuts. We are good stewards to our land, fulfilling a promise to protect the natural world we are lucky enough to grow upon.
Nestled in the foothills of the Molalla Mountains, our land supports a wide array of aromatic plants: from rosemary, sages, roses, lemon balm, mints, to many types of lavender and evergreen trees. These fragrant beauties are used in our essential oil distillations and our natural perfume blends. We practice sustainable, organic farming and all of our plants are propagated, planted, maintained and harvested by the Ring family with love.
