Tested for you: „Lavender Hand Wash“ from March
I love lavender. Its scent has something so calming and comforting. It brings back memories of childhood. Grandma’s homemade lavender sachets, the purple bar of soap in my parents’ house. When my dog is restless, I spray some lavender on his pillow. I treat sleep problems with lavender in capsule form. And of course I have planted lots of lavender in my garden.
Lavare – Lavendel
By the way, the name lavender comes from lavare, the Latin word for wash). The Romans of antiquity used the plant as an additive for their washing and bathing water, as it kills germs, bacteria, fungi and even viruses. Which brings us to the topic at hand, March’s Lavender Hand Wash.
Behind the lavender brand from Austria, which has only been around since 2020, are the two siblings Julia and Matthias from Weiz. They wanted to create something sustainable at home and at the same time bring their farm in Styria, which was built in 1914, back to life. That’s how they came up with lavender, a medicinal plant that has always been appreciated and loved for its versatile applications. In the month of March, hence the company name March, they started planting the first field of lavender. 6000 plants have been planted in the meantime. The small seedlings have now grown into half-sized plants. “Until we can distill our own lavender oil, we purchase organic lavender oil from other farms,” Julia explains.
High-quality and sustainable
Incidentally, in the same year of the creation of the new organic brand, lavender was awarded the title of “Medicinal Plant 2020”. Julia: “Because of its calming and balancing effect, we chose lavender. Admittedly, also because of its wonderful scent and purple splendor.” Meanwhile, “March” includes lavender products for hands, body and rooms, as well as wonderful hand-sewn scented sachets..
In addition to the organic lavender oil, natural Tyrolean mountain spring water is used for the certified March natural cosmetics. All products are vegan, 100% free of animal testing and are produced climate neutrally in Austria. The topic of sustainability is also an important building block in the concept. Plastic is completely dispensed with in the shipping packaging. Paper and cardboard come from recycled materials.
The „Lavender Hand Wash“ liquid soap comes in a high quality brown glass bottle with pumper, either as 250ml and 500ml size. Its wonderful fragrance coats the skin with a hint of lavender. The very mild liquid soap has antibacterial and soothing properties, it relaxes and pampers the skin with rich ingredients. Of course, it is free of parabens, silicone oils, mineral oils and PEG’s. The large 500ml bottle is supplied without a pumper, only with screw cap. So whoever has emptied the small one should definitely keep its pump. This saves unnecessary plastic.

To travel during my profession as a beauty journalist was never enough for my. Also my six month on a world trip didn’t do it. It always attracts me to other cities, foreign countries, on roadtrips and places I don’t know yet. But I am not only interested in “culture” and “cream”, I am also fascinated by people who have stories to tell . Such unique experiences I want to share with you.
