Lavender harvest


By Aleyna

Lavender harvest (Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender))

My daughter makes liquid soap and air fresheners, to be used indoors. I harvested these lavenders to produce essential oil.

Fantastic, Aleyna! What a perfect hobby or job! I love lavender and I love the way you’ve captured this lavender in a pretty basket..

Thank you Thrupennybit

I agree David, love the scent of lavenders

It is a hobby Kate, daughter is a chiropractor and teaches physiology to health science graduation programs. But she loves her hobby. She has a very special gift to mix scents, pomegranate and rose pepper, lemon grass and melissa and lavender and tangerine are some of her best combinations.
