More than 300 stems of English lavender loveliness to add to a vase, a tabletop, or however you like to add lavender to your lifestyle. People sometimes ask if they should spritz bunches with water to release more scent. No, is the quick answer. Heat and friction release the oil trapped in buds and stems. Your dried lavender will emit a soft scent, but will not be as strong as, say, a candle or distilled oil. Your eyes and nose get the treats of the dried bunches, dried in our 1790's drying barn.
