Culinary vs Crafting Lavender

Culinary lavender consists of food-grade, dried lavender buds. Unlike crafting lavender, the buds are thoroughly cleaned of any bitter-tasting stems and leaves.

Great to Relax

Lavender flowers help you release stress and unwind naturally. You can easily make a soothing lavender tea by steeping the dried buds in hot water.
