Even if you aren’t lucky enough to have a garden bursting with lavender flowers, you might be able to find it at a local gardening store, or perhaps even the flower section of your favorite grocer. Alternatively, you can likely find lavender bunches at a farmer’s market, florist, or organic gift shop.
What to do with all of those lovely smelling, purple flowers to hold onto that fragrance for as long as possible?
Perhaps make lavender essential oil (technically an extract), as shown in this tutorial by Condo Blues. Use it in natural cleaners, recipes, or bath products from there.
