Care for yourself & for nature
Hi, I’m Mariette and I have a lavender garden in Spain. Read my blog on making soap, essential oil and other DIY nature products. And buy my sustainable self made products.
Lavender makes you happy
Lavender is good for people. It makes you happy and lavender angustifolia is soothing. I started in 2019 with a lavender garden in Spain. Our land in the Alpujarra mountains had been abandoned for 30 years. We try to make our land more resilient. That is more important than ever because of climate change. The lavender and wild flowers on our land attract many species of bees that are increasingly being squeezed out elsewhere.

Make your own sustainable products
I think products should not come from the other side of the world, but preferably from the neighbourhood, and they should be sustainable. That is why I started Essential.blue.
Buy my products or make your own sustainable products. That is good for you and for nature. Read my blog about how to make essential oil or your own soap and other natural products.
Comfortable sheep wool from the local shepherd
While Europe imports wool from the other side of the world good quality sheep wool just around the corner has fallen into disuse. Therefore, in addition to making lavender products, I also started making slippers from Spanish sheep’s wool. Dyed in the most beautiful colours with natural paints.

Make your own soap & essential oil
Making your own soap with natural ingredients is good for you and for nature. It is not difficult either. Making your own essential oil is the next step. Read along how I do it. And buy the lavender for your own soap or oil from me.
