Sometimes stopping somewhere on a whim can lead to a really neat discovery.
Recently, when travelling with friends to Niagara-on-the-Lake in Ontario, Canada we spotted a sign for Neob Lavender Boutique. We hit the brakes, pulled a u-ey and made a stop.
Not only did we find a lovely boutique filled with lavender products and foods, but were also offered a free tour of the growing area.
We were introduced to a number of different lavender plants and shown the distillery. Neob also grows different plants which they use in their products including calendula, lemongrass, luffah and more.
The free tour was an educational and fun experience and the boutique had many tempting products. This was a great way to spend a half hour.
