Seed to Seal has a whole new meaning for us now
This is Katy in the greenhouse with the yarrow and lavender starts
We spent a lot of time admiring the fields
tasting the fennel...
smelling the lavender...
seeing the huge clary sage field...
until it was thyme for my brother, Ben-David, to turn on the sprinklers.
We also got to experience the juniper tree harvest
The wood chipper
Katy and Jen with the juniper chips ready for distillation
The blue yarrow smelled like flowery, sweet hay
Distilling yarrow at low pressure, low temperature (220 F) for optimal oil quality
This is the blue yarrow oil separating from the water after it condenses
The juniper oil
Finally it goes to bottling and sealing
This is the cold press used to render a sample of lavender oil for testing, before it is harvested
And that was our seed to seal experience! Join us for the next convention or harvest event! It is something you don't want to miss!
