Soothing Ways to Use Lavender in Crafts, Recipes and More
Love lavender? Me too! And growing it in my garden means I have found plenty of ways to use lavender in my home. I grow a variety of plants and harvest them yearly. I keep the dried flower buds in a large jar in my kitchen and another in my craft room. Some of the ways to use lavender is in culinary recipes, natural beauty, and crafts; but first, you need to harvest it!
