Lavender is known for its calming scent but did you know that it can also be ingested? Lavender makes a great floral tea that gives both a fragrant and semi-sweet taste. The main benefits for lavender tea include balancing emotions and calming a stressed mind, eliminating headaches and healing wounds. Another great way to use this herb is to rub the flowers of the plant between your fingers and use as a skin calming agent for bug bites and scrapes. You can mix the oil that disperses from the flower tops and add into an ointment or salve and apply directly as needed. This plant grows best in full sun with well drained soil.
