  • To be honest, I cook with it, I have a great recipe for "lavender pear in port sauce" it's actually pretty good.

  • How about soaps or lavendar infused oil?

    Heratyc- could you send me your recipe?

  • Potpourri. I can't grow any to save me for anything. Each time we try it dies or dies in the brutal winters we get here! I'd love some! I like it for the prevention treatment and smells to ease my Migraines. I've had for 31 years. I've heard you can make tea with it! Once I went to a Garden Show and they had some! It was okay. But I'm sorry I don't have a recipe. But I'd even hang it and dry and and let that beautiful smell refresh my house! Good Luck!
