[donotprint] Since moving to Happy Acres in 2007, I have much more room and sun to grow plants. I love the smell of lavender so I added several lavender plants to our growing landscape of plants.
This year I wanted to make something from our lavender, but since this is the first harvest it needed to be a gift that didn’t require a whole lot of the plant. I decided on Lavender bath bags. They are simple and if the gift recipient doesn’t take baths, she could use it to freshen up her drawers or tuck in her pillow at night for a restful sleep.
The mix is easy to make, even if you need to purchase the lavender. I found the muslin bags online, although if you are good with the sewing machine, they would be easy to whip up. I put several of them in my cute snowman bags and added my Happy Acres label and instructions. [/donotprint]
I love making these gifts from our garden and there is even some left for me to enjoy!
I love the smell of lavender…I have a lavender essential oil in my bathroom. This recipe sounds awesome. I will need to try it out!!!
I like the idea of adding rolled oats into the mix! Great idea. I never grow enough lavender, so I’ll try this next year w/ my sachets. Wouldn’t a whole field be fantastic?!!
Yes, I love lavender and added 5 plants this year. Right now, I’m using it to edge my wildflower garden to keep the deer out. Not quite working yet!
I’ll have to try this recipe! Thanks for the idea.
