Yes. Fresh lavender can be used in water as cut flowers for decoration purposes as well as to add a calming aroma to a room. When used like this, they just need occasional watering as you would with any other flower.

Lavender is a plant that is most commonly used in aromatherapy due to its relaxing qualities. You can use the plant in this way to make things more exciting rather than plainly just setting the fresh cut lavender in a vase of water. It can be done so by mixing up basic and simple recipes to make more exciting products with stronger scent releases.

Lavender oil is perfect for baths, dropped on a pillow or as a massage rub. You can make this easily using your lavender, olive oil, vitamin E and a mesh strainer.

  • Boil the oil whilst placing the fresh lavender to a glass or ceramic bowl. Pierce the vitamin capsules and add the vitamins to the lavender before adding the mix to the oil. Set it to the side in a jar, or similar, for about two weeks remembering to shake it daily. Then you have your oil.
Other ideas include culinary suggestions. Lavender can be used to bring out a pleasant and unexpected flavor to foods such as:

  • Cookies
  • Coffee
  • Cakes
  • Bread
  • Scones
  • Oatmeal
This plant may be used around the home in other ways than decoration.

  • Laundry
  • As part of a cleaning product for the scent
  • Insect repellents
  • In drawers
  • Removing fleas in pets such as dogs
