Artisanal lavender soothes the soul in Sequim - the Lavender Capital of North America

Head to Sequim, AKA the 'Lavender Capital of North America', for one of the most relaxing festivals in the nation.
The Lavender Connection Co.

SEQUIM, Wash. — Rick and Sue Olson own the Lavender Connection Co. Their Farm in Sequim has over 20 different varieties of lavender.

Rick and Sue are very welcoming and their daughter, Rebecca, can show you the varieties and help you invent your scent using essential oils and fragrances with their lavender as a base. Rebecca might just show you the owl that lives in their old barn!

Rick is passionate about distilling lavender and enjoys giving lessons on the chemistry of the process. The Olsons love meeting customers and encourage you to relax, have a picnic and take photos.

If you are in the military, show your military I.D., and you will receive a free u-cut bouquet of lavender.

Sequim Lavender Weekend 2018 starts Friday, July 20 and runs through Sunday, July 22.

Remember to relax and breathe in the fragrant lavender ... you'll be calm in no time!
