Homemade lavender extract made from fresh or dried lavender buds and vodka. This extract is great for baking or homemade lotions and lip balms.
I love to garden, and I especially love to grow flowers. I love that their main purpose is to just be beautiful. A couple of years ago, I planted several lavender plants in my garden in hopes of creating a wall of lavender. This year, I am swimming in lavender. Did you know that lavender has other uses besides looking and smelling amazing? I like to use it in my baking to add a subtle floral touch. For me, it evokes a feeling of old-fashioned love.
