Fresh cut lavender is more potent in smell and flavor. As an herb, its pungency balances the sweetness of fruit and the creaminess of the cheese. Substitute it in recipes that call for rosemary and thyme. Dry it out for tea or infuse it in butter for floral-scented cookies.
Lavender will soothe and calm nerves and has been used medicinally to treat anxiety, depression, and sleeplessness. Known for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, it helps heal minor burns and bug bites. Infuse it in oil for a soothing mosquito repellent or sprinkle it in your bath for a relaxing spa night.
Most lavender sold on the market is sold dry and grown with pesticides.
Why purchase dry lavender when you could get it fresh-cut, grown organically from a local farm in upstate NY? Less miles traveled, no pesticides, happy pollinators, and happy plants.
Local Roots meat is handled with care and you can taste it. There are no preservatives, nitrates or funky chemicals. It's super fresh.
