13 DIY Lavender Projects You’ll Love!

Lavender is one of my favorite fragrances and there are so many wonderful things you can do with this flowering herb. Use lavender in beauty products; use it as a garnish in salads or as an herb when cooking. Bake them into cookies and breads to enhance the flavor of food. You’re probably familiar with two types of lavender … English Lavender and French Lavender. English lavender is the more widely used of the two, tolerating cold weather better than its French counterpart. I love any kind of lavender and today I’m sharing 13 DIY lavender projects you’re sure to love!

13 DIY Lavender Projects for You to Make and Enjoy!Thanks to my blogging friends who submitted their lavender projects to be added to the list!

As an herb or fragrance, lavender is thought to calm your nerves, relieve anxiety, and even help you sleep. Quite often before going to bed, I enjoy applying lavender scented lotion so I can smell the soothing fragrance as I drift off to sleep. I’ve also used it in a variety of DIY lavender projects.

    I am a rug hooker and have a large stash of wool fabric. My favorite use for lavender is to put it in large sachet bags and tuck them into my wool cupboard among the folds of wool to ward off moths. Not only is it a natural way to thwart these nasties, but it smells heavenly when I open the door to pull out a selection of wool. Thanks for these other suggestions. I can’t wait to try them!

  4. Hi Jennifer,

    I absolutely adore lavender!! These are wonderful projects you’ve shared. I think I’ll make the lavender scrub and the honey lavender peaches come summertime. Can’t wait!! I wrote a post over the summer about cooking with lavender, featuring my favorite food item, Blueberry-Lavender Jam. If you’re interested in getting the recipe, here’s a link to my post featuring it: http://www.cottagebee.com/cooking-with-lavender-a-taste-of-provence/

    Warmly,
    Mary

  5. So many lovely lavender products! Round here we’ve made sachets, but now I really want to make a few more of these things…especially the scrub! Thank you for that.
