How to Grow Lavender and Use it in Cooking and Crafts

Use Lavender in Crafts

If you've visited here much, you know I love lavender. Over the years, I've written content about fun things you can do with your lavender harvest (for crafts, cooking and medicinal uses) and also about the literature and interesting history of my purple passion.

Since the lavender growing recap I posted a few days ago was so well received, I thought some of the following posts would make good lunch reading. Lavender really does deserve a little spot by your garden gate, here's why:

If you only have a plant or two and need more lavender buds than you're currently harvesting, you can buy food grade lavender online.

For your first project, try a lavender wand.  Even when the fragrance fades, you can refresh it with a little lavender essential oil. My wands are more streamlined that many you'll see.  They're beautiful to look at will last for years. This lavender wand style makes a wonderful gift and looks adorable in a closet or linen drawer.
