crafting and cooking with lavender

One of my favorite things this time of year is spending the day at the lavender farm, harvesting a bundle or two of fragrant lavender and picking up some local honey. I find peace in the process of separating and tiny-bundling the sprigs into a cozy wrap of rustic twine. I love the fresh, floral scent that wafts through our home while the tiny bundles hang to dry.

You can create so many magickal things with dried lavender. A few of my favorite traditions for this time of year include baking lavender lemon bread, crafting homemade soap and lotion bars, topping off calming candles with fresh herbs and blending up a homemade batch of refreshingly sweet-sour lavender lemonade!
