Lavender Flowers: Bunches & Buds (Dried)
Want just the lavender? Choose from dried buds for sachets or dried buds for cooking (yes there are important differences!!). Or maybe stems to place in your favourite vase? Not looking for loose buds but want a sachet (made with 100% cotton) containing the buds? Then try one of our many sachets we make.
Making your own sachet and want to figure out how much to order? Use a grain (e.g. rice) to create a sample of what you want to create. Then use a measuring cup to figure out your volume. One cup of dried lavender buds weighs approximately 40 grams.
Note that in dried buds (just the flowers) - we use the lavandin (French) buds for non-culinary purposes (in any room of the house, with your linens and sweaters, etc.). We use the lavender (English) for cooking (the culinary variety). For more information about the properties of and differences between French and English lavender please see this page.
For the dried lavender flowers (the stems w/ buds) -- they can be used in fresh or dried arrangements. They have great colour and are more stable than freshly cut lavender. We use dried lavender in all of our vases and bouquets. Differences are mostly the arrangement of the buds on the stem, the colour, and the length of the stem. The stems will emit a lavender scent - but the biggest scent is obtained by crushing the bud on the stem.
