Lavender is one of the best known herbs and it has been used for centuries in its different forms: lavender flowers, lavender water and lavender essential oil.
Sprinkle lavender water on bed sheets to give them a fresh and relaxing scent, or spray onto linens and other textiles before ironing. Lavender water can make a lovely room fragrance and lavender has also been traditionally used as a natural insect repellent. Small lavender pouches can be placed in a cupboard or closet to keep clothes and textiles free from moths. Like rosewater and orange blossom water, lavender water can also be used as a skin toner, especially for oily or combination skin.
