20+ ways to use lavender and make the most out of your harvest . . . because smelling amazing isn’t it’s only purpose 😉
Our lavender plants typically bloom twice a year, early Summer and early Fall. We only have 2 bushes, but by the end of the season, we have baskets full of dried lavender.
It’s glorious and beautiful, and smells oh-so-amazing . . . but I’m never really sure what to do with it all!
Decorate with it, obviously, but I was bound and determined to discover more benefits to this bountiful harvest.
And sure enough, some good ol’ web searching revealed many ways to make the most out of our lavender harvest.
Create with it, make with it, soak in it, decorate it, and of course – eat it!
I hope you’ll enjoy this beautiful collection of 20+ ways to use lavender from around the web, and enjoy your harvest this year and for many more years to come.
I know I will!!
