The story of Penny and her best selling Lavender Salve

lavender salve

Women's History Month is an exciting time for Los Poblanos as our property has been deeply impacted and shaped by amazing women. One of the most influential women throughout the property's history is our current owner and Los Poblanos matriarch, Penny Rembe. Penny and her late husband Armin have lived on the property since the 1970s, and Penny's creativity and business savvy have influenced the preservation and growth of Los Poblanos in countless ways. From opening the original bed and breakfast in 1999 to developing the recipe for our signature Lavender Salve, Los Poblanos simply would not be the place it is today without Penny's leadership and inspired vision.

Farm Journal: The Lavender Propagation Process

Winter is the season for propagating lavender in our historic 1934 Lord & Burnham greenhouse. A naturally occurring hybrid, our Grosso lavender is a cross between English and Portuguese varieties. These plants are also known as lavandins, prized for their essential oil yields. Grosso is sterile, meaning it does not produce viable seeds, so the only way to propagate Grosso is by taking cuttings.

Meet Our Organic Hair Serum

Originally developed as a beard oil for our gentlemen farmers, we soon discovered this wonderful blend of organic oils can reduce frizz, add shine and moisturize all types of hair. Featuring the same gentle, earthy blend of lavender, sage, vetivert, juniper and cedar oils, we have renamed this incredible product to capture all of its uses.

Experience Winter at the Spa

In New Mexico, the days are getting shorter and cooler weather is setting in. The winter season is upon us. As our daily routines subtly shift with the weather, our skincare routines should do the same. Our seasonal facials change every few months and are thoughtfully crafted with our climate and seasonal habits in mind.

Spend this Winter on the Farm

From the first deep breath of refreshing high desert air on a crisp, sunny morning to the scent of piñon wood burning in fireplaces and chimeneas across our property, the winter season at Los Poblanos is nothing short of magical. Just ask our many repeat visitors: there's something indescribable, but utterly enchanting, about Los Poblanos this time of year. With restorative spa treatments, organic field-to-fork menus, plenty of activities and 25 acres to explore, it's easy to spend several days on the farm without ever turning on your car.
