About / We are a family lavender farm in Culpeper, VA owned by Neil & Mary Seek. All products are handmade with love and all lavender is grown, harvested by hand and distilled by the Seek Family. Our 'growing passion' stems from lavender propagation ensuring all lavender plants are derived from Seek Lavender.
Mary has been trained by the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetics Guild professionals in the art & science of personal care product development.
Neil is the Chief Operations Officer & Chief Awesome Officer. He leads Seek Lavender's distilling and farming operations.
The entire Seek family, even the grandchildren, work the farm and are instrumental to all aspects of growing, harvesting, distilling, and product development.
Seek Lavender provides Culpeper, Virginia and neighbors with soothing lavender, in various forms, directly from source and with the opportunity to observe an oasis in which lavender thrives, supporting natural growing processes, giving and receiving love. Seek Lavender is tenderly nurtured, hand harvested, and distilled with thanksgiving and awe by Neil and Mary Seek. Seek Lavender’s initial 150 plants were purchased. Since then, and 750+ plants later, all are propagated by Neil and Mary (we aren’t done yet!) who also manage tasks based on individual interests and expertise. Seek Lavender is now growing medicinal herbs to partner with lavender in providing stress, anxiety and insomnia support.

"Seek Lavender is the real deal. The lavender is grown locally on their property and they make all the products. They're so knowledgeable and take the time time to explain everything. I just love their display and everything smells so good." - Liz Cloutier
"The attention to Lavender detail with the folks from Seek Lavender is simply second to none. I loved learning about Lavender & really enjoyed the thoughtful products that were available for sale. They do such a nice job of displaying their hand made products & sharing their joy of growing Lavender. Fantastic!" - Jennifer Smock
"Seek Lavender smells so good! I have the Lavender Lotion and it is so soft and a very little goes a long way. It is helping me smooth my rough elbows and it really works. The Lip Balm is great! I have the soap, but I haven't used it yet. Keeping it on my bedside table so I can smell it when I'm going to sleep. Also got a sachet for my undies drawer! WooWoo!" - Ruth Zeh
"I can’t tell you how much I love Seek Lavender products! Highly, highly recommend. The lavender eye pillow helps me relax after a long day of work! I now take it everywhere with me when I travel.#madewithlove" - AT
"I wanted to let you know that the lavender eye pillow saved me last night! I had a horrible headache that came out of nowhere, so when I got into bed I put the pillow on my forehead and read a bit. It instantly relaxed me and I went right to sleep! In the morning I was feeling so much better! Also, we've got clothes in the wash right now with the laundry detergent. It was great to meet you and I'm excited about the products I got. Thanks again!" - Mary Ellen
