20+ Crafts to Make with Dried Lavender

With Spring just upon us, it’s exciting to watch as our planted perennials return and bloom for however brief that may be. While lavender, on the other hand, is a long lasting perrenial with it’s distinctive scent lasting from Spring and into until early Fall. Requiring very little maintanence and thriving in full Sun, there’s not a lot of reasons to not grow lavender if you have the space for it.

And for those that cannot collect and dry their own lavender, there are other options. Dried lavender can be purchased at most local bulk food stores as well as these online Etsy shops. Before collecting our own lavender, we purchased the dried lavender buds to make these shower steamers.
