• Lavender Candles and Honey Lavender Cider

    Bridge Nine Candles at the 12th Annual Clackamas County Lavender Festival

    By Chelsea Arvesen

    There was something truly special about selling our Bridge Nine Lavender Candles and aromatic sprays from the very spot in which the lavender for the essential oils was grown and harvested. Oregon Lavender Farm was more than a great place to host the 12th Annual Clackamas County Lavender Festival. It was the perfect point of origin for our best selling candle.

    In fact, after bringing over forty purple Ball jars filled with our Oregon Lavender Candles, I found myself sold out before we got to lunch on the second day! It was great to see people turn to the Citrus or Black Amber Candles. They were incredibly popular, and they made a great replacement for the sold out Lavender.

    Aren't these jars the perfect shade of lavender?

    The highlight of the weekend was easily the dozen or so Facebook Group VIPs who came to the event and visited my booth. Putting their names with their faces brought a special joy to the days at the festival. I couldn’t help but share an extra VIP gift with their purchases, as a thanks for their loyal support. If you’d like to join that VIP group, you can do so here.

    How cool is it that we used Oregon Lavender Farm essential oils in these?

    And no, it was not all work. We were able to enjoy the Clackamas Lavender Festival too. The Honey Lavender Cider from Portland Cider was fantastic! We paired that with the Killa Dilla chicken quesadilla –– a winning combination. There was live music. There were lavender distilling demonstrations. The festival was huge success, and I’m so glad Bridge Nine was able to be a part of it.
