Unveiling one of the best hidden vacation spots for 2023: 6 things to do when you visit lavender fields!
When formulating our Lavender Soulstice 'Air' Candle, we took inspiration from our nearby lavender fields like the Fork & Plow Lavender Farm. The calming aroma of our candle transports you to the tranquil sunsets over the farm fields, lake and mountains.
When you breathe in the lavender wellness molecule from the candle, the peace and tranquility is overwhelming in the best way. You can imagine a calm breeze sweeping through your mind, blowing away any and all stress as the sweet, tender scent of lavender turns heavy dark clouds to clear blue skies with one perfect, warm wisp. Transport your mind with our candle, or take the travel time and physically experience the lavender fields for yourself!
Fork & Plow Lavender Farm:
Tucked away amongst the rolling hills of Aguanga lies the charming Fork & Plow Lavender Farm. Here, visitors can escape the busy modern life and enjoy a serene and tranquil stay. Extra time usually spent on a busy work commute, or last minute breakfast in the kitchen can instead be spent practicing meditation, and relaxation while enjoying our beautiful Earth.
Having the same busy morning ritual can become exhausting, but visiting Fork & Plow is like a restorative therapy for those looking for inner peace in nature. Bookings are available during the spring and summer season in time with the harvest. The quaint bungalows and abundant amenities provided by the farm will have you never wanting to leave!
The View at the Farm:
Upon arrival at the farm, visitors are greeted by the stunning aroma of lavender fields. The farm boasts acres of breathtaking lavender, each overflowing in beautiful shades of purple. As you stroll through the fields, you'll breathe in the crisp, fresh scent of lavender, which calms your mind and reduces stress. With the magnificent scenery and stunning views, it's easy to leave the world behind, restore your wellness, and have a moment of peace and tranquility. Visitors can also ask their host for carrots to feed the goats – named Bella and Tunip!
You Can Take the Farm Home:
At the farm shop, visitors can find all sorts of lavender products, from lavender salts and cookies to soaps and lotions. These handmade products are of high quality and are made with the farm's very own lavender harvest. Guests can take home a small piece of the farm with them as a reminder of their experience. They are also welcome to cut their own bouquet of fresh sunflowers or lavender when in bloom. In the same way, we want our candle to be a morsel of these fields that you light from wherever you are.
Farm Cafe Treats:
After exploring the lavender fields and purchasing some farm-made items, visitors can take a break in the farm's café. Here, you can enjoy some delicious treats and refreshing beverages while taking in the view. Whether you prefer a hot cup of tea or a cooling iced coffee, the café has something for everyone to enjoy.
We are grateful to have simple pleasures like these, and like to remember to enjoy them each day! With a quick lighting of a wick, remind yourself to be grateful for everything - including lavender, and let its calming power ease any worries or anxieties that may loom.
A Bit About the Bungalows:
The perfect end to the perfect day can be completed with a stay in the “May” or “June” tent. The charming bell tents are opened to the lavender fields for even more relaxation and mindfulness meditation. A view of the mountains, Vail Lake and beautiful sunsets can be enjoyed from the private patio space, perfect to unwind and enjoy a glass of wine with your quietly crackling lavender candle. Conveniently across from the tent is The Powder Room, where guests can take advantage of a hot mineral shower and the farm’s Lavender & Olive Oil Soaps.
More About Infusing Lavender:
Lavender can be infused into so many products so you have the power to surround yourself with tranquil aroma all the time. Lavender’s calming properties are near endless, which is why we call it a functional fragrance.
