Our journey through the fields of Northern Michigan continues we we share five more unique applications that showcase lavender’s versatility beyond the garden.

  1. Lavender-Infused Textiles

  2. Pet Care with Lavender
    Lavender’s calming properties aren’t just for humans. Create a pet-friendly lavender spray (ensuring it’s diluted and safe for animals) to help ease anxiety during storms or travel. Its natural flea-repellent properties can also be a gentle alternative for keeping your furry friends comfortable.
  3. Lavender Artisanal Ice Cream
    Venture into the realm of culinary delights with lavender artisanal ice cream. The floral notes of lavender paired with honey or vanilla create a sophisticated, refreshing dessert. This unexpected use can be a conversation starter at gatherings, offering a unique taste experience.
  4. Enhancing Photography with Lavender
    For the photographers out there, incorporating lavender into your shoots can add a layer of depth and emotion. Whether as a serene backdrop or a prop, lavender’s vibrant hues and association with tranquility can elevate the aesthetic and mood of your photographs.
  5. Lavender in Landscape Design
    Beyond its uses in products and edibles, lavender can play a pivotal role in eco-friendly landscape design. Its drought-resistant nature makes it an excellent choice for water-wise gardens, while its ability to attract pollinators like bees and butterflies contributes to biodiversity.
