The husband and I bought our first house in the Fall of last year. We were super excited to start a garden. I was super excited to plant some lavender in the herb area of the garden. So................ What do I do with it? Ha! It grew nice and big and bushy. Any ideas? I just love the smell of it! Aside from the obvious- scent your rice or your lamb with it, what else can I do? Will tea work? Do I have to dry the leaves first for that? Does anyone know an easy way to make soap or any other household-y type things? What else can I use it for?
