Giveaway: Lavender essential oil, Lotion and a Dreamcatcher








When you are in the in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley near Massanutten resort just follow your nose and soon you will discover the WhiteOak Lavender Farm.   The farm is owned and operated by the Haushalter family in Harrisonburg, Virginia.  At the farm they grow over 8000 lavender plants and each summer the plants are harvested to dry the flowers and to extract the essential oil.

In the Old Days lavender was associated with charm and sweet fragrance.  Today, lavender is not only associated with the scent of deep relaxation but also with cooking.  At the farm they offer spices, teas, vinaigrette, jams, jellies and even ice cream. For relaxation at White Oak you can purchase dream pillows, stress balls, massage oils and bath and body luxuries.  White Oak Lavender farm is committed helping others how to manage the stresses of life.  There is an education or discovery area, Seasonal tours,  Garden lectures and Labyrinth workshops.  Please check their website here for a complete list what to do on the farm.



The folks at White Oak are willing to donate a 2 fl.oz sample bottle of Goat Milk lotion and an essential oil roller.


And I think it is fitting to include my own handmade Dreamcatcher (yes, even the doily is made by me!) to the GIVEAWAY.   After you have indulged yourself with lavender luxuries, and you are completely relaxed, you want a peaceful sleep.  That’s where my dreamcatcher comes in…







This GIVEAWAY you will win:

1) 2 fl.oz. sample size bottle White Oak Lavender Goat Milk Lotion

2) .35 fl.oz. White Oak Essential Oil roller, Lavender so Sweet

3) Dreamcatcher in shades of cream and lavender.  Diameter is 12″”, Length is 30″




YOU WILL HAVE A SECOND CHANCE TO WIN IF YOU BECOME A FOLLOWER OF MY BLOG (make sure this is a separate comment so it counts as an additional entry)



GIVEAWAY is ending AUGUST 20th, 2015
