10 ways to use lavender

My grandma's garden is filled with fresh lavender so I decided to make some summer diy projects with these flowers and share some interesting ideas with you. Here we go!:))

1) Make a refreshing lavender lemonade with honey 



2) Make a cute little pillow or a sachet by stuffing dried flower heads in it



3) Lavender wands or potpourri are great gifts for your loved ones



4) Use clean lavender flower heads to decorate a cake or cupcakes


5) Make yourself a calming tea with dried lavender flower heads and chamomile


6) Make a cozy room spray with water, lavender, tea tree & peppermint essential oils 


7) Cut fresh lavender and spread it on your legs & arms to help brush off those mosquitoes


8) Use pressed lavender blooms to decorate a birthday card



9) Tie those fresh flowers together with decorative ribbon and hang it on a door


10) Place fresh lavender in your closet or wardrobe to deter moths


♥Do you like lavender? Have you got any other tips what to do with lavender? :))♥
