Lavender and Christmas Craft Fair and Bake Sale

This photo is courtesy of Rosemary Litz and shows just a few of the items available at the Lavender Christmas Fair this Saturday, November 4, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at C Building at the Mesa County Fairgrounds, Grand Junction, CO.

This is no ordinary Christmas Craft Fair. There will be over 60 varieties of handmade soaps (richly formulated, 100% vegetable, colored naturally with herbs and spices) plus herbal bath teas, bath salts, lavender dream pillows and tranquility pillows, pillow liners, eye pillows, neck wraps, back pads, comfy pillows, drawer & closet sachets, shoe stuffers, purse poppers, hand-made jewelry, herbal spa bags, botanical blessing bottles. Other items available will include wood turned ornaments, bowls, and wine stoppers, goat milk soap in five flavors – lavender, rosemary, natural, arrow root, and baby powder – ceramic soap dishes, lavender bouquets, lavender sachets, lavender balm, lavender oil, aromatic holiday houseplants, ad infinitum.

The lavender in these products was grown locally by members of the Western Colorado Lavender Association , a local group of dedicated lavender growers.

I’ve been informed bed bug travel kits will not be available. You might want to see if one of the venders can make a kit for you. Everyone needs a bed bug kit especially when traveling. All this takes is Neem oil, lavender oil, water and polysorbate 20. Mix it together in the correct proportions and use this as a spray. I’m not sure the lavender will kill the bed bugs but the neem oil is a good insecticide. The lavender will at least make you sleep better even if the bed bugs are biting.

Don't miss this great opportunity to stock up on gifts for this holiday season.
