Here’s a great idea, harvest some lavender, dry it, tie it up with a muslin bag and pop it into a running bath. If you’re like me (freezing your butt off in the summertime because you live in San Francsico), you’ll probably want to use it right away!
Or if you live somewhere where the weather is normal and you happen to use a dryer, pop the sachet into the dryer in lieu of a fabric softener ( you will need to make sure you tie the sachet well!)
