WHAT ARE DRIED LAVENDER FLOWERS?
Dried lavender flowers are defined as it is named. The dried buds are actually more potent than fresh. They maintain their full aroma, particularly in dry form. When recipes call for fresh lavender, one could substitute half the amount of fresh blooms into its dried buds if one desires a powerful scent.
These raw ingredients have a lot of benefits and uses to offer. The dried blooms contain vitamins, antioxidants, and cleansing properties that improve the appearance of the skin. Additionally, its subtle yet charming floral scent and calming colour enhance the overall quality of a skincare product. These are only a few reasons why these dried buds are widely used in the cosmetic industry.
DRIED LAVENDER FLOWERS BENEFITS AND USES
DRIED LAVENDER FLOWERS FOR SOAP, BATH SALTS AND BATH BOMBS
Use these dried lavender flowers as a decorative addition in handmade soaps, bath salts or when making your own bath bombs. These homemade lavender skincare products would make a wonderful gift no matter what occasion. Furthermore, lavender flowers naturally have beneficial properties for various skin conditions and will retain their rich aroma and colour in melt and pour soaps.
However, its rich purply colour won't be retained in cold process soap. Instead, it will turn into a light brownish colour. This should not prevent you from using it in cold process soap though - just realise that the flowers will discolour.
DRIED LAVENDER FLOWERS FOR AROMATHERAPY
These dried blooms can be a simple makeshift use for aromatherapy applications. If you are especially fond of aromatic lavender scents, they can be a great alternative for those who don’t have lavender essential oil readily available with them.
Furthermore, these dried blooms are a great addition as a Potpourri ingredient. For this application, try combining the lavender with dried Red Rose petals and enhancing with a different essential oil for a bespoke blend.
DRIED LAVENDER FLOWERS FOR INSECT REPELlENT
These dried buds are not capable of killing insects and has no role in curing an infestation. However, these insects do not actually like the dried flower’s smell. Consequently, they will avoid such areas protected by these dried buds. For application, try to leave some lavender pomander or hang some lavender bags in areas prone to insects. Or, for outdoor activities like glamping, bring some of these dried lavender bags to deter pesky mosquitoes.
