Handmade gifts made with Lavender are some of my all-time favorites! I started by selling lavender sachets on Etsy years ago. They sold like crazy, but I wasn’t meant to sew all day…lol! Now, I mainly make lavender projects for my home or to give as gifts.
Check out a few of my favorite DIY projects using Lavender below. I’ve made each of these several times and they’re always a hit.
Create a bunch at once and share a little handmade goodness with your friends and family.
There are so many benefits of Lavender! The list is seriously long, but here are a few reasons you’ll want to have Lavender Oil around.

- Keep a bottle of Lavender on hand to soothe occasional skin irritations.
- Freshen your linen closet, mattress, car, or the air by combining Lavender with water in a spray bottle.
- Use in cooking to soften citrus flavors and add a flavorful twist to marinades, baked goods, and desserts.
