I love lavender. It's pretty and it smells good but there are a lot of other good reasons to love it. It's been said to promote sleep and relaxation, relieve pain, strengthen hair, reduce cellulite (hello!), aid digestion, boost immunity, and more.
Here are 21 easy and fun projects you can make with lavender. Most of these are really easy and you can make them with ingredients you have on hand or can easily obtain. These are fun things to make as a treat for yourself or as gifts. If you're looking to save money on Christmas, birthday, shower or other special occasion gifts, try one of these – even if you don't consider yourself a DIY-er. For the record, I'm not really not one.
My husband and I had a lot of fun making the bath bombs together…don't make fun. We did. I have a slight addiction to expensive bath bombs and these are JUST as good. It matters not that I have to wait until after my kids are asleep to actually take a relaxing bath and that I have to clear my tub of the bazillion toys and Darth Vader bubble bath. Sigh.
If you want some inspiration to make some lavender magic of your own, here are some great, delicious smelling and soothing and easy ideas for you.
