Buy lavender

Lavender is one of our favorite dry flowers. With its strong handle and sturdy flowers, lavender is suitable for drying. Dried lavender is also a natural tool for keeping moths out of the wardrobe. But that doesn’t work with the fresh lavender that we know in the Netherlands. We have to be in France for high -quality dried lavender. There, Lavender naturally grows on the lime soils of Provence, about 800 to 1100 meters above sea level. In Provence, the color of lavender becomes extra beautiful. That is because of the climate. Lavender also grows in the lower areas, but it is used for perfumes and essential oils.
