Music, games, food, field tours, demonstrations including how to distill lavender EO & lavender care. It’s a family event!

Come enjoy Lavender Fest 5 on June 18 from 9-3! This unique family outdoor event is held annually on the 3rd Saturday in June. The Lavender Patch Farm is a small family-owned lavender farm open for agritourism. Come pick a bundle(s) of lavender, walk through the fields, listen to the music, take a tour of the fields, watch some demonstrations, enjoy family games, and even participate in some hands on activities!
While you enjoy the lavender fields, surrounded by wildflowers and prairie grasses feel free to take pictures of you and your loved ones. Then relax while enjoying some lavender lemonade and/or lavender ice cream! The lavender shop will be open to take home some lavender memories if you would like.
The cost is $5.00 (includes tax) for 13 years and older. As always, you may pay at the festival. However, for simplicity sake, they will soon have an option to pay online and then you can print a ticket or show your phone. You may do this for the entry fee, a couple of (optional) paid activities, including U-pick ($5.00), as well as the meal of Herb de Provence Pulled Pork Sandwich, chips, and a lavender sweet treat as well as your choice of bottled water or lavender lemonade for $8. Once the ability to buy the tickets online is live, it will be posted on their website (www.thelavenderpatchfarm.com) as well as their Facebook page.

According to 15 Beauty Benefits of Lavender Oil That’ll Make You a Believer by Maya Allen those benefits of Lavender include:

  • Nervous System: Studies show the inhalation of lavender has a soothing and calming effect on the nervous system, making it a great alternative for alleviating stress, anxiety, depression, and fatigue.
  • Nausea: Studies have demonstrated that inhaling lavender scent can relieve feelings of nausea or motion sickness.
  • Headaches: Recent research says that inhaling lavender scent or massaging the oil into the temples, forehead, and neck (specifically behind your ears) can treat headaches.
  • Sleep: Adding a few drops of lavender oil to a diffuser next to you bed at night can help relax the mind and the body and improve your overall sleep.
  • Wounds: Applying a dilution of lavender oil and distilled water to a wound can help stimulate cell regeneration and heal the wound faster.
  • Menstrual Cramps: Applying lavender oil to the abdomen during your menstrual cycle can help alleviate cramping.
  • Skin Food: Lavender is packed with antioxidants that protect and nourish your skin, making it a perfect addition to any skincare formula.
  • Chapped Lips: I love mixing lavender oil with coconut oil for the perfect lip balm to relieve chapped lips.
  • Cold Sores: Lavender’s antimicrobial and antifungal properties make it an excellent choice to combat a cold sore.
  • Acne: Lavender is antimicrobial and antibacterial. so it can be used to treat an acne flare-up or keep it at bay.
  • Sunspots: Consistently using an oil with lavender in the formula can minimize the appearance of sunspots.
  • Itchy Skin: Lavender is an anti-inflammatory, so it can be used to relieve inflamed and itchy skin caused by eczema or insect bites.
  • Dandruff: I tell people to mix lavender with olive oil and massage it into the scalp to get rid of dandruff and other scalp imbalances.
  • Hair Growth: Lavender also stimulates blood circulation, so it can greatly improve hair growth when applied to the scalp in an olive oil mixture.
  • Fragrance: Lavender has a delightful floral yet clean scent, so using it as a fragrance is a great natural choice.
