It’s DIY FRI. again, where every week I try to post something you can do yourself rather than buy, which is a money saver, and can be VERY REWARDING. Some of these posts are crafts, sewing projects, homemade cleaners, homemade health aids, tutorials, and the like.
Is there a flower that is more fragrant and beautiful than lavender? Okay, may be the rose rivals lavender, but they are both pretty amazing flowers. What a stunning work of God’s creation lavender is!
Lavender has so many different uses, and it’s essential oil is phenomenal! Lavender is great for decorating with its fresh flowers, drying them, eating them in salads and drinking them in tea, making lavender sugar, making sachets, and the like; I am currently making lavender oil (not essential oil) which is good for massage and even repelling insects.
The lavender wands are great for putting in linen cabinets and clothing drawers. You can hang them by an open window to use as an air freshener. They also make great gifts, so you can be thinking about Christmas and birthdays now. And of course, they also make great play wands for lovely little ladies.
My friend, Debbie had me and some other friends over to her house to teach us the art of making lavender wands. She used to teach the skill at a local lavender farm. I loved gleaning from her wisdom.
What You Will Need:
- An odd number of fresh lavender stalks
- Garden Shears
Enjoy the beauty and aroma! Thanks Debbie for sharing your skills!
