Lavender – 6 Ways
Today’s hump day… Wednesday and it totally feels like I’ve hit the top of the hump and will struggle coming down the rest of the week. I’ve been feeling so much craziness from Monday & Tuesday and have a long list of to-dos through the end of the week. Saturday and Sunday will be filled with cleaning; so, I’m turning to one of the most delicious smelling herbs, Lavender. Luckily, lavender’s such a versatile herb. It’s known for being calming, focusing, and tasting great in teas and honey.
So, without further ado, here are 6 ways to use lavender to focus, relax, and please your taste buds.
