Family-run, nature loving, hand weeded, lovely smelling

Welcome to Gower Lavender, where the products are handmade, local and lovely, and the planet is at the heart of everything we do. We’re a small family company set up by local couple Rae Howells and Phil Poucher. What started with a few lavender plants in our garden and a crazy idea about growing in partnership with mother nature, is now three lavender patches across the outstandingly beautiful Gower

peninsula, and a range of gorgeous soaps, hand creams and lavender hearts that we send out from us to you across the UK. We weed by hand and make sure our bees and butterflies have plenty of time to feed before we harvest. Our crop is lovingly brought in by hand, and then made into luxurious products and gift sets that we package in eco-friendly compostable boxes. Enjoy exploring our range!

Leaving the bees to it… yes, we’re taking the week off to chill out with the kids. We’ll not be posting out website orders again until 22nd August but if you need something urgent you can still buy from loads of local stockists:

Oh my. Candy coloured soap dishes 🥰

Made for us by the amazing @starlingpots - coming soon to our website… Waaah when?! Well, actually, the exact time is: as-soon-as-we’re-back-from-our-week-off-so-please-bear-with-us-o’clock 😅💜

We’ve got small ovals made to measure for our holiday size soap and bigger squares made for our regular soaps and we have them in blue, green, purple, yellow and pink so all bathrooms, tastes, preferences and eventualities are hopefully covered. Got to have one? I know! Promise we’ll post when they’re live.

Such a great day at the Gower Show! Thanks so much to everyone who came by to say hi and sniff our lavender goodies. So glad I packed that extra box of soaps last night and thanks to Mr Gower Lavender for bringing us extra hand creams 😅

And to everyone already buying Christmas presents, we salute you! Organisational ninjas! We’re in awe!

Big emotions today! We just boxed our 200th batch… which means we’ve made an incredible 10,000 bars of soap! TEN THOUSAND! 😱

And then I thought about it and realised we’ve been growing lavender on Gower and making it into stuff for five years now, but we’ve never really celebrated a birthday. So I thought I’d look back through all my photos and make a retrospective of our first five years.

Of course we’re a family business, so in that time there’s been a lot of life going on too - kids growing up, a puppy, a pandemic… and lots and lots of soap. And a team of lovely helpers and staff and sisters and nieces and nephews and parents - our purple people - who make it all happen too. So a big thanks and a woohoo to them 🥰

So here it is, from our first prototype boxes to our 10,000th bar with a bit of life thrown in. Hope you like it! (You might want to play it with the sound on, it took me a long time to make sure the photos matched to the beat of the music and I don’t want to have wasted the effort lol!)

Ooh I should probably give you all a discount code too, right? How about 20% off our website? Just use the code TENTHOUSANDBARS at the checkout 💜

If you do nothing else today, just give yourself a moment away from the noise, and listen to the bees 🐝

(PS Isn’t our lavender looking glorious? There are HUNDREDS of bees feeding in it)

Uplands Market vibes.

Didn’t have time to post yesterday… and even though we got rained off at the end we absolutely loved our first Uplands 💜

What Our Clients Think

In a bid to use less plastic I bought some lavender and lavender beer soaps - they smelled amazing when they arrived in eco-friendly packaging, but the lavender scent when you use them is not in any way overpowering. The lavender beer especially is so creamy and lovely! Thoroughly recommend buying, and any of the products would make great gifts as the packaging is beautiful.

Super happy with my orders. The smell is amazing I could smell it before I opened the box. The two gifts are xmas pressies but the hand cream is great. I will be ordering more! Great service and loved the personal touch. ????

Thank you so much, my parcel arrived and I knew what was in it before I opened it. The fragrance is amazing. So beautifully packaged too, I want to keep everything not give as gifts. Good job I treated myself to a little something ???? Thank you for your little note too x
