The Bučeva homestead (Bučeva domačija) is imbued with the fragrances of the lavender that grows in the fields and enriches homemade products. ‘Krasna’ is a young brand but well known across Slovenia, bearing the ancient message of the beneficial and healing effects of lavender.
The Bučeva homestead organically grows lavender, which is indispensable in any home due to its healing properties. Lavender particularly thrives in the Karst. The homestead uses the Karst lavender in of its all products and processes, using well-tested methods that basically have not changed in the last few decades but only been upgraded with new knowledge. That’s why everything they produce is of the highest quality.
