crossed my mind a few times to grow some, but have not yet. I do order from Oregon Culinary Lavender for my Lavender syrup that I use in my Lemon aid. (have a couple bags of the stuff presently) have seen recipes for using lavender---simple enough. I also make a cocktail with my Lavender syrup, called "Dragon's breath" It has vodka, sake, lemon juice, raspberries and the syrup, yummy. Recall when visiting the coast line in north Washington State seeing beautiful fields of it. A near - by craft person makes nice lotion and soap from it.
This is my favorite plant . I just moved so I started out with 2 new plants and one is already producing flowers They are recommended to attract bees so I don't harvest too many flowers for cooking and sachets. I wish I could grow enough to make my own essential oil because I use it every day!
