Where To Stock Up On Lavender Products

Lavender Products

Lavender

Lavender Products of all kinds can be found in Washington County.  One of the best places to experience sumptuous lavender products is by staying at Murski Homestead Bed and Breakfast where our bathrooms  feature lavender products made by Chappell  Hill Lavender Farm.   Being a gardener and big  fan of all things herbal, one of our romantic private rooms is named after the herb and aptly named the Lavender Room.  While staying in the Lavender Room, enjoy the private electric fireplace, massive king size cedar post  bed and private porch!

Take a tour of the Chappell Hill Lavender Farm and pick up some wonderful lavender products to take home with you to enjoy in your own house spa!   While out in that neck of the woods venture on into  Chappell Hill, a tiny town known for its spring Bluebonnet Festival, its summer Fourth of July parade, its fall Scarecrow Festival and its winter home tour.

Stop in at Lavande, which opened in the sweet little white house that used to shelter the Historical Society. There, Farmer Craig, as he’s known, sells all manner of fragrant lavender products, from body wash to seasoning rub to sachets to notecards. Check out the lavender mosquito spray, which he says, being only lavender, grain alcohol and water, is safe enough for babies.

It’s practically illegal to go through Chappell Hill without stopping in at The Bluebonnet House, the 21-year-old shop that sells goods to adorn your home, garden or earlobes. And you must talk to Dale Ramey, the proprietor, who knows everyone and everything about Chappell Hill.  While you’re there, pop over to the Brown Eyed Girl, which sells clothing, home décor and jewelry with a bit of a Texas flair.

If history is your thing, tour the Methodist church, visit the museum and definitely pick your way through the Masonic cemetery, where the son and grandchildren of William Travis are buried.

Need a little pick  me up? Fuel up with a homemade country style chicken sandwich or enchiladas at Bevers Kitchen. And whatever you do, save room for a slice of their ethereal pie.  After the pie, settle back with a cold one at the local watering hole called the 291 Ice House, whose motto is “tragically chic yet refreshingly primitive.” The taps open at noon on weekends, 4 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays.

After refueling your personal  tank, head back into downtown Brenham for more places to shop for Lavender Products.   While out and about on the square in downtown Brenham perusing the wares you will discover several of the shops  who stock and sell an assortment of Lavender products.  Some of the shops even make their own products  such as Heaven’s Door.  Final stop of the day should definitely be Home Sweet Farm Market in Downtown Brenham where you will find lavender products produced from local Texas farms as well as other delicious locally produced foods and items.  While there enjoy a mug of their ice cold beer from one of the many microbrews on tap in their Biergarten and a charcuterie platter to thoroughly enjoy the scene.

After a exciting day shopping for lavender products, enjoying local boutiques and local beer, head back to the ranch and your private romantic room for a luxurious nights sleep. Relax in the outdoor spa to soak away the day’s cares before slipping into your king size bed for true deep  country sleep!  Book your room today and make your plan for picking up some great lavender products made in Brenham Texas!
