Harvested Lavender Flowers from our Garden

Yes, I finally did it! I did had the  chance to harvest for the first time some lavender flowers from our garden. Also known as Lavandula angustifolia, it is a flowering plant in the family Lamiaceae. I actually did the harvesting the other week. I would like to make little  lavender pillow cases for our cabinet clothing. I heard somewhere that dried lavender flowers and lavender essential oil are also used as a prevention against clothing moths, which do not like their scent.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI also use lavender as decoration. These are some of the lavender in ceramic vases.

Lavender and its flowers and oils have many uses. I believed most of you know about it. It is known that  its leaves and flowers are use as herbal medicine or as herbal tea.  When I went to France last month, I also  bought soaps made from lavender.

When lavender  flowers bloom in our garden, I love smelling its  leaves and flowers which are really very refreshing and relaxing. I hope I can start the making of little lavender pillows…soon!

Enjoy your day and be safe!
