Monte-Bellaria di California, located in the Russian River Appellation, specializes in local, all natural agricultural produce. West Sonoma County’s mild Mediterranean climate yields incredible quality olive oil, lavender, honey and other fine products. We use these crops to produce our own soaps, fragrances and essential oils.
The farm and family home encompasses approximately 14 acres not far from the village of Bloomfield, California.
While we sell most of our products directly from the farm (weekends 10AM to 4PM April through December), we make some available for online purchase as well (See Online Sales).
Here are some of the products we produce…
Monte-Bellaria Lavender Organic Essential Oil
Distilled, aged oil from over 500 lavender flowers, estate grown and distilled. Made from a blend of certified organic English Lavender, and hybrids of English and Portuguese Lavenders, the scent has a mid-tone herbal fragrance that makes it less sweetly perfumed than traditional lavender oil. Use the oil for aroma therapy (e.g. headache, sleeplessness, respiratory congestion), in humidifiers and to freshen laundry in the dryer. 0.5 oz. $25
