It's my current favorite obsession.


Most recently I bought a pound for crafting sachets.

  5. I'm a huge fan of lavender myself. The essential oil is useful for so many things that I never want to be without it. There is a restaurant in Brown County that serves lavender lemonade. It's really yummy.

  7. Those look so great! I love lavender. A couple of years ago we visited a lavender farm and then came home and made lavender lemonade: http://6dukes.blogspot.com/2008/06/101-things-eat-flower-45.html. It was delicious - such a fun, delicate flavor!

  10. Hello from a new follower!

    I've also found tons of great lavender bath and body recipes online, and you can get a decent sized bottle of organic essential oil at Whole Foods for a reasonable price (though all essential oils are pricey).

    I've adapted my favorites into relaxing bath salts, available at my Etsy shop. I'll feature a tutorial one of these days on my blog. Come say hello and follow back! http://wabi-sabi-home.blogspot.com/
