Spring has finally sprung here in Australia and I can't stop sniffing the air. So heady are the scents that you can almost cut the fragrance and eat it with afternoon tea. I just love lavender, visiting the farms and feeling overwhelmed by its colour, beauty and fragrance. As well as Lavender's inherent herbal and fragrant benefits, it is also great to ward off moths. Let's face it, anything smells better than those moth balls and it's nearly time to put away those winter woollies
As an oil when storing clothes, add a few drops on a cotton ball and place in the storage bag with your cherished woollens, linens or cottons. Other good choices are cedarwood, clove, rosemary and sage
As a flower grab a bunch, add some bay leaves or sage if desired, and hang upside down on your clothes hanger
As a plant We've planted a row of Lavender bushes along our house as a mosquito repellent. A major requirement for outdoor BBQ's on our deck in summer. Oh summer, bring it on...my fake tan bottle is getting too much use!
