Dried lavender - for sachets and potpourris
Scented sachets for the laundry or potpourris reminiscent of a
vacation in Provence: for this you need dried lavender.
Harvest it when it is in full bloom - preferably at noon on a
sunny day. By then, the dew has already dried.
Damp lavender can become moldy as it dries. Make small
bunches and hang them upside down in
a well-ventilated, dry, shady place (e.g., attic, garden shed).
