3 Ways to Add a Lavender Touch to Your Home•
Posted on January 21 2016
We’ve all been there, after the festiveness of Christmas has faded and our homes are empty of festive decorations and displays, we begin to look at ways to brighten up our home, without a bauble in sight!
It isn’t all about decorations, there are a whole host of ways that you can bring lavender into your home, from the best lavender latte to perk up your mornings, to a truly decadent body lotion that will leave your skin feeling silky smooth. We have listed some of our absolute favourite ways to bring lavender into your home below, so get ready to say ‘hello’ to lavender!
Decorate with Lavender
There are countless ways that you can decorate with lavender, from lavender pomanders, to a beautiful display of dried lavender. Lavender not only brings colour to your home, but the unmistakable lavender scent will fill your home, which will add a calming, soothing touch to any room.
We always recommend giving your bunches a light spritz with some hairspray before displaying them, as this helps prevent the buds from falling.
In years gone by, lavender was mainly used in skincare products, perfumes etc. but today, it is a very different story! People have been playing around with lavender in drinks for several years now, from a lavender mojito to the most incredible lavender latte, and everything in between, there is a lavender drink for everybody!
One of our personal favourites is the lavender hot chocolate for those colder evenings, or a lavender lemonade to celebrate Summer, whichever option you choose, you will certainly not be disappointed!

Lavender in the Kitchen
One of the most popular ways you can use lavender in your home is in the kitchen and not just in delicious homemade food (lavender scones are life changing!) but lavender can also help you keep your kitchen super clean.
You can create your own lavender kitchen spray that will not only keep germs at bay but will leave your kitchen smelling ‘scentsational’.
