Dried Lavender Botanicals

There are many creative ways to use dried lavender around the house. But, we know you want to know just what this super herb can do for you. Well, you may like that lavender can lift your mood - because we all have the odd day when we just don’t feel our best selves.

Lavender can also soothe pain, help to heal bug bites as well as minor burns. If you have children running around the home, the occasional nasty fall (and wailing cry) is never far off. Not a bad idea then to have a bouquet, sack or canister of dried lavender buds on hand at times. Speaking of that, let’s talk about how you can use dried lavender around your home:

Dried Lavender Bunches

Before sweeping your floors, shake a few buds off of your dried lavender bouquet. Instead of kicking up and choking on the usual small cloud of dust, you will have the calming lavender scent to lighten the chore. 

And, still on the cleaning theme (not that you are remotely concerned with that), but your garbage will smell as good as your house. 

Dried Lavender Buds to Deodorize Your Laundry?
