Is it Monday already? This weekend was pretty mellow and nothing exciting to post about.
I have been trying my hand at making lavender oil, using these instructions. Timothy has a bunch of different lavender growing in his garden and he harvested a good amount of it last week. I hung a bit in my room for the scent but I didn't want it to go to waste. I went to Pinterest to find some directions on how to make essential oil from it. It was fairly easy. Basically you take the buds and stems and put them into a jar, bruise them a bit, and then immerse them in vodka for a week, shaking the jar a few times a day.
Sunday was the day that I filtered the lavender buds and the liquid from each other. I won't know how it turns out until next Sunday, but the scent from the liquid that we were straining and how soft my fingers were after I spilled some onto my hands has me very optimistic. I took some pictures of my progress and I can't wait to share my finished result next week.
