I harvested & dried the Lavender in the garage in 4 bunches  upside down for a month & then removed the flowers from the stem.

Now I’m adding these in my potpourri, as a scented sachet in my closet & also to clean my mattress by adding some lavender buds & baking soda & after 2 to 3 hours will vacuum it up & it will smell really good… I’m also planning to use them in place of dryer sheets in the dryer, also going to simmer it in a pot of water with some citrus peels for a natural air freshener.
