Lavender

I harvested the last of my lavender right before the early snow hit. There are so many great uses for lavender and it is so easy to grow! I dry mine and use it for tea and oil infusions to make lotions and beauty products.

Try seeping dried lavender in almond or jojoba oil for 6 weeks (keep in a dark place and strain with a cheesecloth) for an amazing homemade oil or mix dried lavender leaves with dried chamomile and lemon balm for a relaxing herbal tea. 🌿
