  1. I don’t think I’ve ever had lavender in anything. Sounds interesting.

    • It’s delicious in many things – especially beverages and baked goods. Just make sure it’s culinary lavender if you purchase it dried. If you’re growing it, make sure it’s the culinary herb. Enjoy!

  2. Hey Hqorganicsblog,
    Speaking of which, I want to make my own bath salts, using lavender oil and dried flowers, but need to know the quantities of each component, amounts of epsom salt, sea salt, amount of lavender oils (and which is not harmful to the skin) etc. etc………
    All the Best

    • James, I’d encourage you to google some DIY bath salt recipes. There’s several out there that will give you a good recipe. Good luck! Angela from High Quality Organics.
