It’s lavender harvesting time, so the theme for this week’s Farmers’ Market is Lavender Takeover! Several of our vendors will have lavender products along with their usual amazing offerings. The market is in downtown Wallaceburg from 8 am until noon on Saturday July 6th in Municipal parking lot D, between SaveMax and RBC.

Lavender is a herb in the mint family, and there’s record of it in ancient Roman times! We’re all pretty familiar with its fragrant smell, but how do we use it at home? Here are some ideas!
Scent Your Home – Hang a wreath or bundle of lavender in your home to welcome you whenever you enter! Make up a DIY lavender linen spray to freshen up your home. Use dried lavender buds in a fabric bag to store in a linen cupboard or dresser to keep linens and clothes smelling beautiful.
Good Sleep – Lavender is often used to help with relaxation and sleep. Hang some lavender in your room so that the smell may help you drift off to sleep. Take a calming lavender bath before bed by sprinkling lavender buds or lavender scented epsom salts in it. Make a tea of lavender to sip with a favourite cozy book before bed.
For Eating – Lavender goes hand-in-hand with baked goods! Lavender scones, lavender and vanilla cookies, a honey-soaked lavender cake! So many delicious ideas! But you can also pair up lavender to create some savoury treats – use it in a honey-drizzled crostini, add it to a homemade salad dressing, or if you want to really be bold, add lavender to a chicken marinade (it pairs great with thyme and rosemary). The easiest way to include lavender in your cooking is using a lavender-infused honey, which you can get at this weeks market.
Self-Care – Use dried lavender, lavender wands, or lavender infused soaps and candles in your self-care routine. Light a candle before bed. Take a lavender scented bath. Hang lavender in your shower so that when the steam hits it the fragrance activates!
Pollinator Plants – Lavender is a tall, bright flower that attracts pollinators! Plant some in your garden to encourage bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and other wonderful pollinators to your garden. Bonus, you get to watch the wildlife enjoy your lavender too!
