Soon I will make more lavender wands. They’re good for your drawers, dash board etc. Where ever you would like to smell lavender :)

Thanks guys. I love these! I learned how to make these a couple of years ago. They're called lavender wands or bottles. They hold the scent for a long time, if it fades just give it a squeeze. I have 2 large lavender plants and making these is a good way to use your lavender. Here's a link on how to make these:
They make great gifts or can be sold. :)

Surfing [ as they call it ] found your lavender wands they look great. If this is not a guarded secret could you let me know how you made them ? I have a few varieties of lavender.
