Find a perfect gift for your mother!

April 10th, 2011 by Jardin Du Soleil

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching! Find the perfect gift for your mother (or for any other special mothers you know) at Jardin du Soleil. Lavender has always been used for relaxation and makes a perfect “thinking of you” gift. Or perhaps you know she’s a fan of our lavender products and want to indulge her a little this year. Either way, you’re sure to find something she’ll love. Can we recommend…

You can treat her to her favorite culinary treats, like Lavender Teas or our new Culinary Lavender & Herbs de Provence Gift Set.

Or pamper her with some of our lavender bath and body products! Our Lavender Pomegranate Gift Set is a great gift to give, and a portion of the proceeds are donated toward Ovarian Cancer Research. What better gift to give? Or if she’s a fan of pure lavender fragrance, Lavender Bubble Bath is always a luxury and sure to be well-received.

If she’s a lavender lover, why not find some lavender items to help her fill her home with the scent of lavender? Our Lavender Room Spray is a popular item, and women always love to have a Lavender Sachet in each of their drawers.

Remember, we’re offering FREE SHIPPING on all online orders of $50 or more, now through May 31, 2011. So go ahead… order yourself something while you’re at it!

Travel Candles Now Available!

April 2nd, 2011 by Jardin Du Soleil

We’ve added our deliciously scented Travel Candles online! Find them under the “For the Home” category, or currently they’re appearing on our Featured Products! These travel tins are 100% Soy Wax and smell so good, you’ll want to burn them everywhere you go. Make sure you get one to bring along on your Spring and Summer travels!

Lavender Saffron combines the sweet scent of Lavender with the earthy spice of Saffron. Both men and women love this candle, so if you’re traveling as a couple this is a great candle for your room.

The Lemongrass Travel Candle is so uplifting and refreshing, we can’t think of anything else to perk us up after a long day of traveling. If you like lemon or citrus scents, you’ll adore this candle. The scent reminds us of a cold glass of lemonade on a hot and sunny summer’s day: we’re tempted to burn the candle constantly!

Lavender Gingerbread Cookie Recipe

December 11th, 2010 by Jardin Du Soleil

Mmmm! We couldn’t wait to try some gingerbread cookies with lavender this holiday season!

We figured the easiest way to try these cookies would be using our Certified Organic, Fair Trade Lavender Sugar, and it turned out to be just the perfect amount!


2 1/4 cup flour

1/2 cup Certified Organic, Fair Trade Lavender Sugar

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup molasses

1 egg

1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. ginger

1 tsp. ground cloves

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

Blend all of the ingredients with an electric mixer. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Roll out Lavender Gingerbread Cookie Dough to 1/4 inch thick, cut into shapes, place a half inch apart on a cookie sheet, and bake for about 8 minutes or until slightly browned. Makes 2 dozen 5-inch cookies.

*If you prefer a slightly stronger lavender flavor, add 1/2 tsp. finely chopped Culinary Lavender.

Ornamental Cookie Frosting:

1 1/4 cup powdered sugar

1/8 tsp. cream of tartar

1 egg white

Blend all ingredients until very thick- a knife drawn through the frosting should leave a line. Color and use to decorate!

We just created the Best of Lavender Gift Set, which includes Lavender Lotion, 250 gram Lavender Soap, a Lavender Votive, an embroidered lavender sachet, a Lavender Dark Chocolate, and a Lavender Lip Balm.

Day 2 of our Holiday Gift Guides… Looking for a great gift for your friend or family member who prefers to use certified organic products? Jardin du Soleil has a whole host of certified organic lavender products that are sure to be appreciated!

  • In the Kitchen…Our Certified Organic, Fair Trade Lavender Sugar is a wonderful treat for the tea drinker or dessert aficionado. Our Pink Himalayan Lavender Salt is a wonderful, natural salt renowned for its purity and nutrients, or perhaps our Certified Organic Culinary Lavender is exactly what you’re after.
  • If you’re looking for something For the Home, think about our Lavender Sachets or our Dryer Sachets, all of which are made with our certified organic lavender.
  • Out of our Bath and Body lavender products, our Bathtub Tea is made out of all Certified Organic ingredients, which all are soothing, healing, and beneficial to the body. Our Lavender Shea Butter is made with the purest of ingredients (Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Certified Organic Lavender Essential oil, and cosmetic grade mica for pigmentation) and is very popular with doctors and health professionals. And the best part is how incredibly moisturizing it is… just like our Lavender Cuticle Cream, made with only Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Cocoa, Vitamin E, and our certified organic lavender essential oil.
  • If you still can’t find the right gift, what about a bottle of our Certified Organic Lavender Essential Oil? We have several different varieties distilled, including Super, Grosso, and Angustifolia. Certified Organic Lavender Essential Oil is such a versatile product… it can be massaged into the temples, dropped on your pillow at night, diffused using a pot of hot water, added to home crafts, products, or potpourris, and our Certified Organic Angustifolia Lavender Essential Oil can even be used as a culinary oil! A little goes a very long way though!

We hope this helped you narrow down the gift search… Stay tuned for our Day 3, Gifts for the Do-it-Yourself person!

DIY Christmas Gifts: Lavender Cleaner

November 28th, 2010 by Jardin Du Soleil

An easy project that you’ll appreciate in the house, or give it as a homemade gift to a friend or family member!

You’ll Need:

1/4 lb. certified organic lavender buds

1 large box baking soda

coffee grinder or mortar and pestle


Grind or crush lavender buds. Mix with baking soda and keep in a jar. We use 1/4 cup crushed lavender to every 3 cups baking soda, but you can alter the proportions to your own preferences. Uses: try sprinkling on the carpet before you vacuum for a fresh scent, use to clean garbage disposals, or set out to capture unwanted scents. Or use however you use baking soda now! (we wouldn’t recommend using this mixture in your baking, however, as our bulk lavender buds aren’t a culinary variety). Enjoy!

Write your recipe on a 4×6 index card, staple your Ziploc bag of certified organic culinary lavender to the corner, and Voila! You have a culinary treat for someone special!

BONUS: When you order our certified organic culinary lavender, we’ll include 10 mini Ziploc bags with your order! Just mention this blog in the “message to seller” box during checkout!
