Making Lavender Wands
THE HOW-TO >
What You Will Need:
- 15 to 25 stalks of fresh lavender
- A ribbom
- Essential oil of lavender (optional)
How To Make Them:
Gather your bundle of lavender and tie a ribbon to the base of where the lavender buds start. If you wish, this is the time a few drops of essential oil of lavender can be applied to the flower buds and allowed to soak in.
Personally I like to keep the weave on the looser side so that the lavender flowers on the inside are not crushed and also so there is enough air flow so that everything dries properly without growing mold or mildew.
Keep weaving until you get to the end and tie off with a bow, trimming the excess ribbon.
Allow to fully dry and you're done!
For more on drying herbs and flowers see this previous post over here.
To refresh a drop or two of essential oil of lavender really does the trick.
