Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I always think of lavender.
My grandmother used to have handkerchiefs embroidered with tiny flower designs and fragrant with lavender.
Did you know that the fragrance of lavender promotes relaxation and soothes fatigue?
I often make little lavender sachets to tuck in with gifts for friends and co-workers. They would also be lovely to give to all the mothers that you know.
Simply scoop enough lavender into each pouch to make it full, tie with pretty ribbon, and voila…all ready to go. I like to make little tags to attach with instructions to tap the lavender lightly to release the aroma before bed for a soothing sleep.
Remember to make one for yourself and keep it on your bed-stand. Give it a quick squish and drift off into dreamland.
Lavender sachets make nice little thank you’s for parties and showers.
You can grow your own lavender in the garden or patio pots. Harvest early in the morning just after it comes into bloom and hang to dry.
