aroma therapy

Guaranteed to make you feel better. BUT requires advance planning over several months:

1. Plant lavender plants

2. Harvest flowers at early bud stage

3. bunch and hang upside-down to dry

4. Dry for a minimum of 2 - 3 weeks - a month to be safe

5. On 'down' day, strip buds off stalks, breathing deeply. (discard stalks, save buds for sachets or include in yearly Herbes de Provence recipe - or tea)

Guaranteed to lift my spirits in 3 minutes or less. Every time. . . .
