Description

People have used lavender as a fragrance for centuries, but this herb is not just a pretty scent. Roman soldiers wore it into battle believing it had protective powers. The essential oils of lavender are said to deepen sleep, speed wound healing and disinfect your home. Lavender can also be used in cooking to create culinary treats, such as crème brulée or lavender butter. We will discuss uses and history, learn which varieties grow best in the low desert, and how to harvest and store this amazing plant.
