Dried lavender flowers, less commonly known as Lavandula Officials, come from the Lamiaceae plant family. This flower has a multitude of benefits and uses. They are very aromatic, and they maintain full aroma when in dry form. The flower buds are extremely light, so a small quantity will go a long way. Lavender buds originate from the flowers that bloom from late spring to early autumn and have a rich purple color.
In terms of aromatherapy, the lavender scent is commonly used for relaxation. The flower buds are a great substitution to those who don’t like working directly with the essential oil.
Dried Lavender is great for making sachets. They can be placed around the house or hung near the doors, windows or even throughout your car to keep insects at bay.
You can also add lavender to a bowl as a potpourri, either by themselves or with other dried botanicals. They are great for making floral bath water, eye pillows (or simply adding to your regular pillow case for a fabulous nights sleep). These flowers are also great for mixing into your soap to add a gentle exfoliation to your final product.
Finally, these lavender buds make great confetti for that upcoming wedding as they are extremely fragrant and earth friendly.
