  2. Yay! It's good to see someone else using lavender spray, everyone seems stuck on the citrus. My grandmother used to use this, I use her recipe but it's just fresh lavender and vinegar. Simple as.

  7. Oh what a lovely colour it's gone, Tania...must try this too. I made the one with whole cloves in it...I like the smell but it's very dark and shows if I don't wash it off properly,

  12. I must give that a go, the smell must be nicer than the commercial products.

  13. Yay! I'm always looking for different ways to use lavender, so I'll be trying this one for sure.
    Thanks for sharing!

  14. Is there a certain type of lavender that you need to use? We have French lavender in our yard but I've always assumed that with all lavender recipes you need the English variety (eg to dry and put into potpurri etc). I might try this too!

  15. Hi Lilian, welcome and thank you for your comment. That is a good question, I am not sure what sort of lavender I used because it was given to me. For this mix I used the pretty pink/purple lavender. I have what I call plain lavender (light purple) brewing at the moment, so will have to wait and see how that turns out. I just presumed any sort of lavender...

  17. Oohhh thanks for this Tania! Lavender is one of my favourite scents/oils and I am using lemon at the moment, so it would be a nice change!
