With such beautiful purple flowers and strong aroma, there are endless possibilities for using fresh and dried lavender to decorate and enhance the home. Here are just a few:
Preserve your garden flowers by making a batch of potpourri to fragrance your home through the winter.
Using rose petals, orange peel and lavender buds, you can easily whip this up in minutes.
DIY Scented Soy Candles
Homemade soy candles are a safer alternative to store-bought scented ones, which often aren’t very good for our health.
Get rid of unpleasant odors that are lurking on your sheets, towels and pet beds by throwing a small cotton sachet stuffed with dried lavender into your dryer before switching it on.
For an all-natural room scent and linen spray, mix two teaspoons of witch hazel with one cup of distilled water and 10 drops of lavender essential oil. Decant into a spray bottle and use whenever you need to freshen up your sheets or wind down after a hard day at the office.
It’s also an ideal pre-bedtime spray to ensure a restful sleep.
