recipe for making lavender oil and I just may give it a try. I love the scent of lavender. It is supposed to have a calming effect.
I also like Herb Gardener Blog, complete with a recipe and other useful information (like about allergies).
Of course, essential lavender oil can be bought already prepared.
If you mix about 20 drops or so of lavender oil with 1/8th cup of vodka (I wouldn't use Grey Goose or Stoli, just cheap stuff) and add a couple of cups of mineral water, you get a lovely spay for the linen closet--or spritz it on your pillow before bedtime.
It also makes a cooling foot spray. I think it would have deoderant properties as well.
With the marauding critters decimating my vegetables, I may go more and more to herbal gardening.
We had a lovely weekend with sister and brother-in-law. Saturday was a perfect kind of Vermont summer day.
We were almost tempted to go to the waterfront fireworks in Burlington, but remembered the crowds and traffic from the last time so we decided to have burgers on the deck instead.
