I've never posted to this forum before, but thought I could get the answers I am looking for here.

I've got the best bloom going on my Lavender. Best I've had yet. I want to do something creative with it, but I'm not sure what. I've done a couple dried arrangments in the past, but I want to utilize this awesome fragrance.

What kind of things can I do with fresh lavender? Or can I?

Dani :o)

Dani, I've tried using dried lavender in soap and it turns a ucky brown. Potpourri is the only thing that comes to mind.

Have you cut the stems real close to the ground, bent them at the bottom of the blooms, brought the stems way up & over the blooms, & wove ribbon through the stems & then made a bow? You'd have something that resembles a sock darner.

I wish I knew what this is called!

i like to cook with it. use the buds only, i only use dried. you can make muffins (lemon and lavender are yummy) shortbread cookies with lavender. i also make herbs de province. i love lavender in tea also.

What about making it in bath teas?
just google bath tea recipe (lavender)
I bet you find a ton of recipes.
They would make great gifts!!

Another nice use for the dried buds is drawer sachets. You can put them in pretty organza bags or simple muslin ones.
