Not only do I love using lavender essential oil, but I also love using dried lavender, whether it’s in homemade health and beauty products or in the kitchen.
Lavender is easy to grow and does well in most conditions. It’s a great addition to any garden! If you live in an area with cold Winters, plant your lavender in a pot so you can bring it indoors and place near a sunny window during the colder months.
Lavender is most known for its soothing, calming quality and it’s ability to promote sleep and reduce stress. It is also gentle and healing for skin.
In the kitchen lavender pairs well with cream, honey, vanilla, chicken, lemon, peaches, plums, rosemary, thyme, and walnuts.
Here are 16 ways to use lavender:
- Honey Lavender Syrup: I use this to make honey lavender lattes or I add it to sparkling water for a refreshing treat.
- Lavender Shortbread (would go great with a honey lavender latte)
- Herbs de Provence (secret ingredient for the best popcorn topping ever)
- Lavender Honey: Use this to sweeten your tea or to wash your face.
- Lavender Salve (perfect for dry hands and rough patches)
- Use to relieve congestion
- Lavender Vinegar (great for cleaning, using as a hair rinse, using for a facial toner, and more!)
