Lavender, a Soothing and Medicinal Herb
Lavender is a wonderful medicinal and culinary herb. It is a hardy plant that flourishes in dry, sandy, well drained or gravely soils in full sun making it hard to kill. Lavender is great for the amateur gardener who wants to start growing their own herbs. If you don’t want to grow your own lavender there are great companies like Bulk Herb Store or Mountain Rose Herbs where you can buy dried organic lavender flowers for a reasonable price. I also love to use lavender essential oil.
When people think of lavender, normally soothing scrubs, sachets and soap (that help us relax and sleep better at night) come to mind. There are so many other uses for lavender. Why limit yourself to a couple things when you can heal, relax, cook and clean with lavender?
