My lavender is going a little crazy, so I had to bring some in! I must say that the fragrance is intoxicating. Lavender is believed to have a calming effect, which I very much appreciate. It’s easy to dry lavender and make sachets. Once we stayed at a Bed and Breakfast, and they placed little sprigs of lavender tied with ribbons on our pillows.
I also read that if you dry some lavender, place it in a paper bag to keep, then throw it in your fireplace in the winter, it will perfume the air and bring thoughts of summer to mind.
I placed some in a “vase.” It is really a whiskey bottle from the 1920’s, which I found in a very dirty condition at a second-hand store. Once cleaned up(a little elbow grease and a couple of rides through the dishwasher), it made a lovely vase for lavender.
